From Racer to Student

About Me

My involvement in motorsport was when I was the youngest person ever to attend the BRSCC Awards Dinner, aged just 11 days old. From then on, I have been attending race meetings almost every weekend, to support my Father when he was racing. As I got older, I started to get given little jobs to do, such as wheel washing and polishing the cars, up until now where I am helping my Father mechanic on the cars and driving them around to scruitineering and into the assembly area.

In October 2012, I had saved enough pocket money to compete in the Ginetta Junior Scholarship – a competition to win a fully funded season in the 2013 Ginetta Junior Championship. There were 60 competitors, including various karting champions and racers from across Europe, all trying to secure a place in the final 20. We had to demonstrate our fitness, media and driving skills to various high profile drivers such as Adam Morgan (BTCC Driver), Tom Ingram (2013 Ginetta GT Supercup Champion) and Jack Stanford (Chief race instructor at Silvestone). All of them commented on how smooth my driving was, and told me that I had a natural talent for it and should persue a racing career.
