I have done quite a few shoots, but it doesn't feel like i am getting there...

What is your opinions about me? Need to know what to do/change etc.

Please :-)

You have a great look and a lot of potential! I think some of your poses look too "posed", like it doesn't come naturally. That's only the case in some photos, though.

Getting where? Male models will never get the attention that female models do with a few rare exceptions (Marlboro man, David Beckham...).

I'd suggest trimming your MM portfolio a bit, you have a lot of very similar shots. Pick the best, dump the rest.

You say in your profile you are a racing driver, but don't specify what you drive. If it's cars or ATV's, get some shots of you in/on the vehicles.

Get a few more dressed up (suit or sport coat and slacks) 3/4 length or full body shots. Look at men's fashion magazines (especially the ads) for the current trends in posing/attitude.

Good luck!

also, work on lining up better photographers. Honestly in just glancing at your port everything seems slightly underexposed/over posed/etc..etc. Better photographers will help you with your posing and help to bring in a team that will style you as well which is crucial for a stronger port.
