Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

Motorcycling is my other big hobby, currently I ride a Triumph Tiger 800. I've done a couple of tours of Scotland and a big trip to the alps.

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

Not really but I do like to stretch, it's a tight squeeze into a G40 for me.

What are your motorsport career highlights?

My first podium last year was a brilliant feeling, hopefully I can see a couple more this year.

What is your championship goal this season ?

I want to work on my qualifying pace and my consistancy. I learnt a massive amount last year and I'm hoping to do the same this year.

What's your favorite circuit and why?

Brands Hatch, so far its a great circuit with so much character, I've loved spectating there over the years and to race there was a bit of a dream come true.

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

I raced in the G40 Cup last year, with a best of P2 at Snetterton, which was my best ever result and my first podium finish. Last year started well but a bad weekend at Spa dropped me in the standings and the rest of the year went downhill from there.
