Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

Ski, Snowboard, Surf, Gym.

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

I like to sit somewhere alone and listen to music before getting into the car. Once in the car I literally sit there and zone out and try not to over think the race ahead.

What are your motorsport career highlights?

My motorsport career highlights are finishing the winter series last year with a car in one piece and gaining valuable experience to take into the season. The other highlights are..........ask me in September :)

What is your championship goal this season ?

My main goal this season is to gain experience and learn as much as possible as quickly as possible. Better to under promise and over deliver :)

What makes your driving stand out from the crowd?

I haven't had any experience in any other form of motorsport such as karting or junior saloon cars, I am literally a rookie in every sense of the word. My experience of driving has been in an Audi A1 on a beach, a land rover on a field and a couple of test days in the Ginetta. I guess I am not your typical driver with the typical background of karting etc.

What's your favorite circuit and why?

Oulton Park : Because it's technically challenging and my home track, I have had a few moments on the track where I have really had to improvise and deal with changing conditions.

Where did you race and what were your results last season?

I raced in the Ginetta Juniors winter series as an introduction into the series, this was my first race and was designed for me to gain experience. We faced a few challenges over the weekend series but our aims, as a team, were achieved.
