Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

Tennis, gym & 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.

What is your championship goal this season ?

Since I am starting half way through the season, my aim is to be on the pace and to win best rookie at some of remaining meetings. I also want to use my specially designed "Sparkle Car" to raise awareness of Sparkle Malawi, the charity for which I have raised over £16k this season 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, and there's little in way of run offs.

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

I was Clio Cup Junior championship contender last season but after a clean break of my finger playing rugby, I was ruled out of competing in the decider at Brands Hatch.
