Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

I have a great interest in art, I am always sketching and trying out new techniques and styles. Going to the gym of course. I also enjoy driver coaching cadet kart drivers as they move up into my Junior TKM kart class.

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

I don't have any pre-race rituals as such. Dad always tells me to have fun, that's as close as it gets!

What are your motorsport career highlights?

Winning the Junior TKM Super One British Karting championship in 2017 after losing out on the title on the last lap of the last race in 2016. Coming so close to winning the Ginetta Junior scholarship in 2017 against over 60 drivers was also very special.

What is your championship goal this season ?

I always race to win, so aim to be at the sharp end as the season progresses

What makes your driving stand out from the crowd?

I am always smooth, precise and consistent but very determined too.

What's your favorite circuit and why?

I don't have a favourite circuit, I just love to be on a race track, wherever it is. Symes Sweep at Buckmore Park kart circuit is probably my favourite section of any track so far.

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

During 2017 I raced a Tal-ko Junior TKM in the Super One British Karting Championship. I finished the season as the first Junior female karter to win a Super One title. I won the British Open Championship and also the TKM Festival Junior Elite title at Kimbolton, both in one weekend. Winning 8 races from 10 I became the first driver to do the 'double' with the Super One title later in the year making a unique 'treble'. I also won the Wessex Championship earlier in the year at Clay Pigeon raceway in Dorset.
