Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

I like moto-cross and snowboarding when I can!

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

I guess so, I sit in the car in the assembly area and visualise how I see lap one over and over again. I like to psych myself up a bit.

What are your motorsport career highlights?

In karting, I would have to say it was probably when I was named 'Driver of the year' by Karting magazine after racing (and winning) four championships in 2016. In cars I would have to say winning the GRDC in my first year. 2016 Karting Magazine's A&D Driver Of The Year 2016 Dmax Heats Champion 2016 Dmax Enduro Champion 2016 Club 100 Lightweight Sprint Champion 2016 Daytona Power Maxed Team Endurance Champion 2016 Daytona 25 Hour Champion (Setting fastest lap and pole position) 2016 British 24 Hour Vice Champion 2016 Karting Magazine's A&D Driver Of The Month (April) 2016 Karting Magazine's A&D Driver Of The Month (October) 2016 Karting Magazine Interview (May) 2016 Top 3 for Downforce Radio's Driver Of The Year 2016 Karting Magazine's Driver Team Captain ​2015 Dmax Heats Vice Champion (4 points from Champion) 2015 Dmax Enduro Vice Champion (2 points from Champion) 2015 Daytona 24 Hour Pole position and 3rd overall

What is your championship goal this season ?

I am just excited to see how fast I can go with Assetto Motorsport. I'm really just looking forward to more close racing.

What makes your driving stand out from the crowd?

Very aggressive. Can I say that?

What's your favorite circuit and why?

I'd say Brands Hatch, the circuit itself if great fun to drive and you could say it separates 'the men from the boys!'

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

After 2 years of Go-karting I entered my first season in Motorsport racing a Ginetta G40. I won 5 out of 8 races and became the 2017 Ginetta GRDC Series Champion. 2017 Ginetta GRDC Series Winner 2017 Brands Hatch GP GRDC Lap Record 2017 Snetterton 300 GRDC Lap Record 2017 Silverstone GP GRDC Lap Record
