Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

I play football and rugby and have played for my local football team this season as a goalkeeper. I also enjoy driving on the simulator as well, and I've got a small set up at home which I use quite a lot.

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

I always listen to music but other than that not really!

What are your motorsport career highlights?

My highlight is starting my first race in a high profile championship (Ginetta Juniors) after only 3 days testing!

What is your championship goal this season ?

To have a successful rookie season and possibly challenge for some rookie podiums as the season develops.

What makes your driving stand out from the crowd?

I think my ability to learn quickly has been something I've always had to rely on throughout my Motorsport career, this has generally helped me to stand out and has allowed us to stay competitive!

What's your favorite circuit and why?

Brands hatch is one of my favourite circuits that I've driven on so far as it has a good mixture of fast and slow corners - I also really enjoyed driving at Snetterton and Silverstone during pre-season testing.

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

I did the first two rounds of the Ginetta Junior championship last year - progressing up the grid in each start.
