Like many racing drivers, I started my racing career behind the wheel of a Kart, moving into the Ford Fiesta Championship to the Formula Ford Single-seater series gaining experience and podium's along the way. 

2015 saw my progression into the VW Racing Cup, which supports the British GT Series at some of the fastest and iconic racing venues across the UK. After a rocky start with various car problems, I was finally given the car to be able to show my potential at the Legendary Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium, where I scored my first VW Cup podium and set both the fastest lap and am the current holder of the lap record at the time of 2.45.886 seconds. The hard work and dedication during the early season helped secure my first race win coming at the high-speed Snetterton circuit, and again securing fastest lap and the lap record. 

Over the season, I was able to help secure my team's first ever podium lock out at Spa with a 1,2,3 and regularly placing myself up among more experience championship-winning drivers in what was my maiden season. I had multiple top ten finishes, podiums and set lap records in a car sometimes plagued with technical issues.

As a 19-year-old that works full time to fund my racing, 2015 was a year that I will never forget and I am delighted to announce that I have been given the opportunity of a lifetime to race again in 2016 but this time, with a proven race winning team and a part sponsored drive! I am looking for help to support the last bit of funding for my 2016 season, with great TV coverage and a fantastic racing environment, it's a must for any motorsport or car fanatic. 

I also have space available for larger sponsors so please get in touch as I can offer various rewards. I would not be racing today without the amazing support from my family, friends and the incredible trust and support from my sponsors and management team who believed in me and helped share those all important race wins.
