I started racing at the age of 6, having got the racing bug from visiting my Grandfathers kart track at Matchams. I won my first championship at the age of 8, and have had continued success through all of the 18 years I have been racing. My biggest achievement so far coming at the Formula Ford Festival in 2014, which I won from 6th on the grid by 6 seconds. It means I now share an race winners honours board with former Formula One drivers such as Mark Webber and Jenson Button. My ultimate goal is to reach the top level of motorsport with the final dream being to win a world championship.
I have been supported by my family for my entire racing career, financially and personally which has made me determinded to win more than ever. With rising through the motorsport ranks, also rising with me is the cost of competing.
However, I believe with the success I have had and continue to achieve, this is now just the start of my career. Now I am looking for people to join me on the road to success.
