What is your career highlight so far?

Aside from the two British Kart championships and race victories, winning the 2011 Porsche Scholarship was something that I could not have even imagined to achieve, especially against drivers such as Adam Morgan and Sam Tordoff. I truly felt an incredible sense of achievement at that time in my career.

Who are your motorsport heroes and why?

James Hunt and Kimi Raikkonen. I find them very genuine with very amusing personalities.

 

Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher because of their ruthlessness and determination to win, their sheer speed and just how incredibly ace they were at driving in the wet.

The 1990 Ferrari F1 car

The Gulf Le Mans Porsches

The Silk Cut Jaguars

The 1990’s Jordan F1 cars


What are your hobbies outside of motorsport?

At the end of every season I love going travelling, in particular exploring new territories, most recently Australia. I also like spending my time playing pool beating Mike Epps.
