Im looking for funds to supplement my own personal investment in my motorsport career.
From being born I have been brought up involved with motorsport, sleeping in the back of vans as a months old baby and watching my Dad in club level Rallycross. Cars and driving fast are in my blood, I am confident in my ability and I have not yet given up hope in my dream of becoming a professional racing driver. I am looking for help from you to give me the chance I need to show what im made of.
The investment you can make will aid with my 2019 season where I aspire to dominate my current race series (Uk Legends Cars) and further my profile in Uk Drifting.
From age 11-19 I raced in top level karting all over the uk. In my years I won many races, championships and titles. Through these years I competed against and beat some of todays best drivers that have since gone on to Gt, Clio Cup and Touring Cars. The only reason I couldnt be there is financial.
Alongside my racing career and most importantly to help finance myself I have been involved technically as a driver coach, mechanic and most recently appointed as a technician for Mclaren‘s ‘Pure Gt’ program. I am also involved in supercar experiences where I can give people the ride of a lifetime with my ‘flambuoyant’ driving style in there dream supercar!
In my recent years I have been competing in Driftcup, where I built, developed and learned in an e36 bmw. This car has since been sold as it wasnt powerful to partake at top level. I have also built from scratch and am currenly racing My 1937 Ford Coupe Legends Car in the national series. In my first season of competition I have so far had a 3rd and two 5th place overall finishes. Against 25 other competitiors including the World champion to have achieved these results so far is remarkable. With time still left in developing the car and me still learning the tracks and how to get the most out of driving the car I feel next year I can be even more competitive!
Having raised my budget it will allow me to ‘drive harder’ not be too worried about damage or engine wear and to allow more time working with the car and on myself as a driver rather than working all hours of the day just to be able to partake.
Any donations regardless of amount will be recieved gratefully and will be used for only my motorsport development.
Thankyou for your support and interest.
