Having only started karting at the end of January 2016, I managed to fly through the ranks achieving numerous podiums, lap records and a Championship all within my first year.
I’m extremely proud to have been scouted by Arden Motorsport and signed to their Young Racing Driver Academy (YRDA). “Being scouted by Arden is something I never expected. I’m overwhelmed by their commitment and I’m working very hard to repay their confidence in me by performing to the best of my ability. The simulator training and physical training I’m doing now, in readiness for racing cars this year, is very demanding, but their help and support is getting me fitter than I’ve ever been. I can’t wait to race the Ginetta Junior car this year.”
I made my car racing debut at Rockingham Motor Speedway in August 2017 as part of the prestigious Simpson Race Products Ginetta Junior Championship, supporting the British Touring Car Championship. I also competed at Silverstone and then the season finale at Brands Hatch GP. My best rookie result was 5th place, which I was very happy with but it’s my race pace and aggression on track that have really improved.
My immediate aim is to secure a competitive drive for a full season in 2018 in the Ginetta Junior Championship, which we’re all working hard for right now.
