Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

I enjoy going fishing with my Dad and Grandad when I have free time; it’s great to spend some quality time with them both and it’s incredibly relaxing as well!

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

I have a music playlist that I like to listen to which gets me pumped for the race. I like to find somewhere out the way of everyone when I am getting ready as well so I can focus on what I need to do.

What are your motorsport career highlights?

Winning the MG Trophy Championship (Class B) in 2018, it was amazing to be crowned champion after all the hard work that we as a team put in. Getting the double win at Silverstone’s MG Live in 2018 was also a career highlight because it is always the biggest event of the calendar.

What is your championship goal this season ?

This season I would like to get in to the top 10, it’s a big challenge this year changing from FWD to RWD because it’s a completely different driving style but I believe the top 10 is definitely achievable.

What makes your driving stand out from the crowd?

I was once told by a photographer I don’t stand out that much as my driving was always tidy! But I do like to be late on the brakes to get overtakes done so hopefully that makes me stand out!

What's your favorite circuit and why?

My favourite circuit has to be Spa Francorchamps, it was a dream come true to race there! The circuit has some of the best corners in the world and I loved it.

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

Last season I raced in the MG Trophy Championship and the C1 Challenge with the following results; Silverstone National 8th & 4th Brands Hatch Indy 2nd & 4th Silverstone GP 1st & 1st Donington Park National 7th & 2nd (Fastest Lap) Oulton Park International 1st & 3rd (Fastest Lap/Lap Record) Snetterton 300 1st & 3rd (Fastest Lap) Rockingham 24hr (C1 Challenge) 17th Spa Francorchamps (C1 Challenge) 11th
