Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

Well this year i've become quite fond of spending time in isolation if that counts..... (Wouldn't recommend it)

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

I'm usually found bouncing around at the back of the garage, listening to music trying to psych myself up with a quick energy drink. I also like to get into the car very early when in the holding area, it helps settle the nerves.

What are your motorsport career highlights?

Winning the Championship last year on the penultimate corner, of the last lap, of the last race of the year to overturn an impossible 61 point deficit after 2 rounds of a 6 round championship. A true underdog story

What is your championship goal this season ?

To actually go racing... (Thank you NHS) If we do then it'll be to not to write the car off on the first corner and if I achieve this then i'll be aiming to win the Ginetta GT4 Supercup Pro-Am Championship.

What makes your driving stand out from the crowd?

I'm Fast, Aggressive with Zero Fear; i go for any gap that exists. If thats not enough to make me stand out, my car being chrome purple definitely will...

What's your favorite circuit and why?

Zandvoort! An utterly brilliant race weekend last year, topped the time sheets in FP1, FP2, Double Pole, Race1:1st , Race 2:1st and Race 3: 2nd (Sigh).. New lap record and Sunoco driver of the weekend... Yeah, i love the place, can't wait to go back.

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

Ginetta G40 Cup CHAMPION: 5 Wins, 5 Pole Positions, 7 Fastest Laps, 13 Podiums, Best Qualifier & Sunoco Fastest G40 Driver 2019
