Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

Short handed Offshore yacht racing has been a passion of mine, so I'm hoping for some inspiration in the wet!

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

No but I do enjoy teasing the other drivers in the holding area.

What are your motorsport career highlights?

Too early in my career to say, I was pretty pleased to finish my first ever race last year! So next stop is my first podium, lets hope I can afford to keep going long enough to get one!

What is your championship goal this season ?

Challenge my peers from last season. Qualify mid grid and improve on my qualifying position in the race

What makes your driving stand out from the crowd?

Walking pace at some corners, spinning off and working my way back! all which need to change in 2018!

What's your favorite circuit and why?

I love them all, too early to say which is my favourite as I have only raced them a few times. Donington was fun!

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

I raced in the novice GRDC championship in 2017. As I had no previous motor racing experience I was pleased with my mid fleet performance!
