Number of Seasons with Team HARD:

I’m entering my second season with the team in 2019.

What made you chose Team HARD?

The family atmosphere is just amazing and one I’ve wanted to be apart of for a while, now I’m in I can’t get enough of it!

What are your hopes for the 2019 season?

Podium finishes

How long have you been racing?

I started racing in 2004 so for around 14 years!

What made you want to become a racing driver?

My dad kept trying to get me into racing since I was 8. I wasn’t that bothered about it but when I was 14 my dad went kart testing, I had a go and was over a second faster! From then we knew we had to go for it.

What other championships have you raced in?

I raced in many karting formulas as well as Ford Fiesta racing. The bulk of my career has been in the Renault Clio Cup which I’ve won twice!

What is your favourite track?

Has to be my home event, Brands Hatch.

What is your favourite car you have driven?

It 100% must be the Volkswagen CC… the touring car or my road version, I’m not fussy.

If you could drive one race car what would it be?

I’d love to have a go in a Audi R8 GT3, what a beast of a car!
