Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

Racing our Siberian Huskies in the UK for the last 19 years; usually on wheels and occasionally on a sled. Building camper vans is also something I do - but always saying 'I'm not doing another' when the last is completed.

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

Can of the red stuff that gives you wings seems to work for me. I try to visualise a few laps in the car, when in the holding area - but I usually get distracted by everything else that's unfolding.

What are your motorsport career highlights?

Taking Eau Rouge at Spa, flat in the Ginetta is definitely a highlight.

What is your championship goal this season ?

A place on the stand would be amazing, but realistically a top 10 placing in the championship would be good.

What makes your driving stand out from the crowd?

I'm too polite and some drivers take advantage of that!

What's your favorite circuit and why?

Silverstone GP. You need to be brave with the speed. Some corners really fast and show how good the G40 race car is. There's also lots of run-off for when you get it wrong!

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

I finished 16th in the GRDC+ series. 2017 was not my finest year, using up almost every excuse from the '101 Driver Excuses' book.
