Ambition

Having successfully completed my maiden 2020 season in a Ginetta G55 competing in the GT4 SuperCup, I am really enjoying this season in a BMW M4 in the Intelligent Money British GT this year.


My aim is to continue developing and I am thrilled to have helped Century Motorsport to regain the GT4 crown in British GT this year.

Next up, my goal is to join a manufacturer Development Program and, ultimately, to have the opportunity to participate in both European and global events.


It is important for me to gain mechanical expertise to enable me to fully understand and contribute to the car set-up, so I will consider taking a motorsport engineering degree alongside my racing career.

Team

I am delighted to be part of the Century Motorsport www.centurymotorsport.co.uk again in 2021. I remained with Nathan Freke’s Century team because it instills great confidence in me to have such a professional team behind me along with a well-engineered BMW car.

Century is well known in the paddock and has an enviable track record of success in British GT and I am delighted, along with my co-driver, Will Burns, to have won the 2021 Intelligent Money British GT4 title with a round to spare.

2020 Ginetta GT SuperCup

I finished 2nd overall in the Millers Oil Ginetta GT SuperCup Championship in my maiden season as a pro-category driver.

Out of 19 races, I notched up more podiums (16) than any other driver, won 5 races, secured 2 poles and 6 fastest laps.

Had I not been the innocent victim of two DNFs, I would have been celebrating winning the championship. But, I was satisfied with my progress and more eager than ever to challenge for the British GT4 title in 2021.

2019

I was consistently in the top 5 and finished the season strongly in this highly competitive Ginetta Junior Championship, notching up several podiums.

2018

I was leading the Clio Cup Junior Championship when I switched mid-season to the rear-wheel drive Ginetta Juniors.

2017

Aged 14, I competed in the inaugural Clio Cup Junior Championship and was in title contention when a rugby injury prevented me participating in the final round at Brands Hatch
