Number of Seasons with Team HARD:
What made you chose Team HARD?
Tony has been trying to get me to join the team for the last 2 years and when I saw the massive support and the family attitude it was clear I would fit in with them.
What are your hopes for the 2019 season?
I’m really looking forward to my first season in the BTCC and the first as a pro racer. Obviously, I want to win but I’m realistic and I would be delighted with some points finishes and good Jack Sears results.
How long have you been racing?
I have only been racing cars for 2 years so it’s going to be a massive learning curve this year but it’s one that I am ready to tackle.
What made you want to become a racing driver?
I’ve always enjoyed watching the racing and thought I’d give it a go a couple of years ago. It turns out that I’m pretty good at it!
What other championships have you raced in?
My first season was in Ginetta grdc+ in which I won the championship in my first season. In 2018 I raced in the Ginetta GT4 Supercup as an amateur and won the AM championship. I was even mixing it with the pros all season long.
What is your favourite track?
I love going to Oulton Park and also racing on the Snetterton 300 circuit in Norfolk. Racing in a FWD car will present a new challenge at these circuits.
What is your favourite car you have driven?
The BMW GT4 car Is fantastic, it’s such a beast.
If you could drive one race car what would it be?
I’d love to drive an LMP1 car at Le Mans. I’m not fussy so any of them will do!
