Tell us a little about your car.
I drive a Mercedes A Class on the road but I currently race a VW Polo R WRC in the VW Cup, engineered by Power Maxed Racing. Today I am testing the might BTCC Chevrolet Cruze!
Why did you go in to Motorsport and why did you choose your current discipline?
My father was into racing and I grew up around circuits, so it's in my blood!
What events have you driven in and how did you do?
I started racing in karts and finished in the top 3 of the formula kart starts championship.
At 14 I moved into cars and raced in the Fiesta Junior Championship, finishing 7th in my 1st year.
At 16 I progressed to the Fiesta Senior Championship.
I raced MSA Formula 4 fo 2 meerings before taking a brief break to make my VW Cup Debut, But it has all been builing up to this year in the VW Cup and we are well on track with myself being the current leader after 6 races.
What are your future plans for competing?
Well BTCC is a dream of mine, Which is why I'm so exicted to test the Cruze today! But I woul also love to go in to GT as well.
