    Story

    Hello, I’m Daniel – a 16-year-old with a passion for Motorsport. After six months training I had been offered a place in the upcoming British Formula 4 Championship but, promised sponsorship was suddenly withdrawn and unfortunately I was unable to raise the entry fee. But, I have now been asked to compete in this years Formula Ford Championship but still need to raise £20,000 necessary to do so.

    I need help !!!

    My racing journey began when I was just seven years old; I progressed rapidly through the junior karting ranks but aged 12, I suffered a relapse of a rare kidney condition I’ve been battling since my first birthday. I was advised to stop karting to give me time to recover, and at that point I thought my racing career was over.

    After a tough recovery, during which time I was hospitalised for long periods, I was given the chance by the children’s charity Dreamflight to go to Orlando in Florida. Every year Dreamflight takes children with a serious illness or disability, without their parents, on a holiday to the theme parks of Orlando. This experience taught me that nothing can hold you back if you put your mind to it.

    I would like to repay Dreamflight and use my experience to encourage and inspire others with disabilities to never give up and maximise their potential. With your help, I can raise the profile of Dreamflight and, help them raise the enormous amount of money they need each year !

    When I was approached in February 2019 by my school to take part in the British Schools Karting Championship, I grabbed the opportunity (and wheel) with both hands. Despite a three-year sabbatical I won all my races and things have really accelerated since then!

    Through the Beyond Dreamflight scheme I’ve received a grant to cover my safety equipment but, I now need to raise £20,000 in order to complete the FF series in 2020.

    I thought my career was over, but it’s only just beginning! I live my life by believing if you – WISH IT, DREAM IT, DO IT. Can you help make my dream come true and, help Dreamflight provide the opportunity to give other children the Holiday of a Lifetime !

    Ride with, and follow me on what promises to be an exciting journey?

      Hi All A quick update as to how I am managing to keep focused during the Lockdown. I now have my New Racing wheel which enables me to learn and race the circuits I will be competing on. The new wheel gives positive feed back just like the Team simulator so, I get to experience how the car feels and reacts on the track.I now have a daily fitness program to improve my upper body strength and stamina. It's really hard but will be worth it ? Although Motorsport is shutdown I keep focused reading & Learning about past champions. Keep safe ! Daniel

      Hi All, We are all living through unprecedented times at the moment and I would like to say a big thanks to all of you who have donated to help me achieve my dreams. All motorsport has now been suspended from F1 to F4 down to junior karting, all tracks are closed until further notice. With no practicing, and limited simulator time we will use the donations collected so far, to go towards the purchase of a Racing Wheel to plug into my PS4 games console to help me learn the track I will be racing on soon. Please keep well & stay safe ! Daniel

    Unfortunately I was unable to reach my target to compete in F4 this year I now have been given the opportunity to race in the British Formula Ford Championship. FF is a great series to race in and helps young drivers to develop their race craft and gain further experience.
