Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

Yes, I enjoy gaming with my friends when I’m not racing, testing or gyming. I also enjoy participating in school sports like soccer, cricket, surfing and swimming.

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

No.

What are your motorsport career highlights?

The highlights of my motorsport career have to be in the most recent years. My favourite highlight would have to be my most successful result at the 2019 Rotax African Open where I was crowned the African Open Champion and won the final by just a few hundredths of a second. Later in 2019 I competed in the Rotax Grand Finals, which was my most successful international racing event and by far the most competitive. The entire Grand finals week is a highlight in itself as it feels like the F1 of karting. 2021 Ginetta Junior winter cup race win
