Seasons with Team HARD: 2 (Fiesta Juniors, via Jamsport and Britcar Endurance last season)
What made you chose Team HARD?: Chose Team HARD as we as a family have known Tony for a long time and have built a level of trust which just feels comfortable. Also, the team has gone from strength to strength recently, and I believe that there is so much more to come.
What are your hopes for the 2018 season?: My 2018 season goal is to win the GT4 Pro/Am title in the British Gt Championship .
How long have you been racing?: I have been racing cars since I was 15, having raced karts for a year and a half prior to that. So I have 2 seasons behind me now.
What made you want to become a racing driver?: For as long as I can remember, I have loved speed. I am also very competitive. So with these qualities combined it was almost a foregone conclusion that I would become a racing driver.
What other championships have you raced in?: I have raced in are The Fiesta Junior Championship in 2016, where I recorded several podiums including a race win, several podiums and fastest laps and a lap record in my rookie year. I also raced in The Britcar Endurance Championship in 2017 where I came 3rd in class in my first Senior season against experienced international competition.
What is your favourite track?: My favourite track so far is the Snetterton 300 circuit.
What is your favourite car you have driven?: The favourite car I have driven so far is the Ginetta G55.
If you could drive one race car what would it be? : My ultimate car currently would be a Lamborghini Huracan GT3, although I would really love to drive an LMP1 CAR at Le Mans.
An unusual fact about yourself: An interesting but little known fact about me is that I like to play piano to unwind if I’m feeling a little stressed.
