“This year I am massively looking forward to racing in a highly competitive championship. I will push hard to achieve great results. I am excited to see how I will adapt to the change to rear wheel drive after racing Fiesta’s last year. This will put my strength and knowledge to the test. I am eager to get started and see what I can accomplish with a great team behind me, Alastair Rushforth Motorsport.”
“Ideally, I would like to finish consistently amongst the front runners and claim some possible podiums. I had a very successful season in 2022 in the BRSCC Fiesta Junior Championship. I would like to carry the momentum into the GT5 championship”.
