Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

My job and young family take all my time up outside of racing. I do enjoy cycling.

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

I never have, I like to joke and have a laugh with the team as everyone else is getting serious.

What are your motorsport career highlights?

Competing in the Ginetta GT4 SuperCup last year finishing 7th overall and being a part of Edinburgh Speedway's premier league winning team!

What is your championship goal this season ?

To get as many podiums as possible!

What makes your driving stand out from the crowd?

I am an aggressive but fair driver.

What's your favorite circuit and why?

Donington with its hills, off cambers and blind corners, a real drivers track.

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

I raced with the 750 motor club in the Tegiwa BMW M3 Cup and finished 2nd overall. I was on the podium nearly every weekend, winning a number of races which was a really good achievement in my 2nd season of racing.
