What is your career highlight so far?

For me it has to be winning the MaX5 Championship two years in a row, 2017 Class B (MK1 MX5) and 2018 Class A (MK3 MX5).


Who are your motorsport heroes and why?

Probably Lewis Hamilton and Ayrton Senna. I loved the way they both drove on track!


What are your favourite cars/teams/liveries from motorsport history?

Either the Porsche 935 “Moby Dick” or the 917K – two of the most iconic race cars in history.


What is your dream career in motorsport?

Ultimately it would be F1, that’s everyone’s dream. Realistically, BTCC, Porsche Carrera Cup/Supercup or LeMans is somewhere I’d love to be!


What are your hobbies outside of motorsport?

I do a lot of sim racing – using sims like iRacing and Assetto Corsa avidly. That certainly has helped get to where I am now.


Tell us something that people wouldn’t have known about you?

I am Type 1 Diabetic – I was diagnosed in 2004 at the age of 4 and was told I could never be a racing driver. Funny that….!
