Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

Swimming, skiing, gym - anything active. Also playing the guitar, really quite badly.

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

I’d love to say lap visualisation and throwing a reaction ball. But in reality, just nervously drinking lots of water!

What are your motorsport career highlights?

My first GRDC races at Brands Hatch last summer. Racing in front of a big crowd was amazing!

What is your championship goal this season ?

To be competitive, see how far up the grid I can get, and carry momentum into the G40 Cup next season.

What makes your driving stand out from the crowd?

Daniel Ricciardo-style bansai overtakes. Maybe.

What's your favorite circuit and why?

Wherever I finish highest! But at present, Snetterton: it’s got it all from a driver’s perspective, except, being in Norfolk, elevation change!

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

Just the two GRDC races at Brands Hatch, trying out the car. The aim is to be further forward this year!
