Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

Fitness plays a part in my life and I have been known to run for the bus.

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

My father and I have a smile to each other but don't need to talk as we know what each other would say.

What are your motorsport career highlights?

My biggest highlight so far has been being able to race in Ginetta and to be pushing for the championship title with a hard working team. Throughout my Motorsport career so far i have achieved multiple cadet club championships. Birel ART UK Karting Series Rookie Champion and 6th overall in the 2016 championship. Birel ART UK Karting Series 8th overall 2017.

What is your championship goal this season ?

My ambition for this season is to be on the top step multiple times and to be a strong contender for the championship title. Both Richardson Racing and i have been working extremely hard over the winter so that we can achieve success.

What makes your driving stand out from the crowd?

Id say the way I can read a situation is a huge part of the way I drive and when I use that to my advantage it really highlights me as a driver.

What's your favorite circuit and why?

I would love to race at Mount Panorama because it looks like such a challenging circuit and the downhill section looks as though it flows perfectly.

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

Last year I raced in Ginetta Juniors making me a second year driver. I had many top ten finishes and after a rocky road last year I ended up finishing 14th in the Championship overall.
