Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

I'm pretty obsessed with going to the gym. I used to play Chess for Essex so enjoy maintaining my ability by playing against friends. I'm working towards my Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award and I am part of the Combined Cadet Force in the Royal Electrical Mechanical Engineers (REME) section at my school.

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

I always put my left glove on first

What are your motorsport career highlights?

For me, 2016 was an awesome year. I won my second consecutive World Karting title in Paris; the British Schools' Karting Championship as well as the Fastest Lap Award and Best Performing Driver at the same event; set five lap records; was the Ginetta Junior Scholarship 2017 Runner-up and was named the London Borough of Havering's Junior Sports Competitor of the Year

What is your championship goal this season ?

To stay as consistent as possible, achieve as many podiums as possible and hopefully be a serious contender for the overall Championship title

What makes your driving stand out from the crowd?

My smooth and calm but calculating driving style

What's your favorite circuit and why?

My favourite circuit is Donington Park due to its fast and flowing layout

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

Last year I competed in my first ever car racing Championship, the Ginetta Junior Championship, following my success as runner-up in the Ginetta Junior Scholarship 2017. I achieved 4 Rookie podiums.
