Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

Gym, tennis & skiing.

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

Just chilling, listening to music.

What are your motorsport career highlights?

Fastest laps, poles and P1 in both my last races in Clio Cup Juniors at Silverstone National. 2 poles, podiums and a fastest lap at last year's Ginetta Junior Winter Series.

What is your championship goal this season ?

I am aiming for podiums and to contest the championship title. I also want to use the eye-catching "Sparkle Car" livery to raise awareness of the charity, Sparkle Malawi, a day centre for orphans & vulnerable children, for which I am an ambassador and I plan to raise £24k by way of car sponsor advertising.

What makes your driving stand out from the crowd?

I pride myself of my consistency.

What's your favorite circuit and why?

Croft because its has great variety of slow and fast corners and, as I found to my detriment in testing, there's little in way of run offs.

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

I was leading the Clio Cup Junior championship when it was disbanded and I joined Ginetta Juniors for the last 5 races of 2018 season.
