Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

Outside of motorsport I enjoy Skiing and catching up with friends.

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

I would say no, however I have been told that I always fiddle with my gloves just before I go out which could be counted as a ritual!

What are your motorsport career highlights?

My motorsport highlights include qualifying for the sodi world series and competing in France where I ended up 4th out of the thousands of entrants. I also have had numerous wins in karting through my relatively short time on the track.

What is your championship goal this season ?

My championship goal for 2018 is to gain experience throughout the season and to aim for Rookie podiums and some main ones too!

What makes your driving stand out from the crowd?

Hopefully the results that I strive to achieve with a constant learning curve and always trying my hardest to improve both on and off the track.

What's your favorite circuit and why?

My favourite circuit is Snetterton because it is the first circuit I tested on and have some great memories! It is also a technical circuit that when you get it right it is a great feeling.

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

Last season I raced in Junior Subaru. I Also finished 4th in sodi world series in France which was the culmination of finishing in the top 2 in the UK corporate karting in 2016. My race car debut was in the ginetta junior winter championship at Brands Hatch.
