Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

Skiing, mountain biking, mounting climbing (any extreme sports)

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

I must put my left glove on before the right.

What are your motorsport career highlights?

Without a doubt it was winning the Ginetta Junior Championship last year, that was something really special. I also won the McLaren shootout to become one of their development drivers for 2022/23 and that was a great end to a fantastic year. Also creating a partnership with DTO to race the G56 in this championship is a real highlight, it’s exciting to be working together with a committed team who also want to win.

What is your championship goal this season ?

*What are your targets for this season, and longer-term career ambitions?* It’s new car and a new championship for me so my targets are to be consistent, be fast and finish in the top 3. I want to use what I learnt in the Juniors to help me make an impact on this championship. Beyond this season I want to move into GT racing and plot a route to the FIA WEC and Le Mans.

What is your racing history?

I started karting in 2012 in Honda Cadet later while doing Iame Cadet at the same time. In 2017 we did Honda cadet super one finishing 5th, we then moved to Junior x30 doing kart masters and world finals for 2018. In 2019 we did the Ginetta Junior Scholarship getting into the top 6. I spent 2020 learning more about motorsport and the junior car to go on a become 2021 champion!

What makes your driving stand out from the crowd?

*How did you get into motorsport?* My Dad used to race, and I always loved the cars and the sound they made. He helped me get into Karting 10 years ago and I loved it was able to run at the front and win races. Over the years we managed to find a way to fund the racing and that ultimately led us into preparing for the Ginetta Junior Championship 3 years ago.

What's your favorite circuit and why?

Knockhill because it’s a drivers track that pushes everyone to the limit
