This year I will be racing in the Thunder saloons class of the CTCRC and the Sports Specials class of the 750mc


Moving to a new formaula in 2019 I am competing in the F1000 championship that has changed to being run by the 750 Motor Club for the first time this year. With a new challange ahead of me in the form of slicks, wings and motorbike engines I hope to get to grips with it quickly and keep up to the long list of talented drivers in the class.

Alongside this I will be competing in the Thunder saloons class of the CTCRC once again. Developments over the winter to improve the gearbox and the tyres can hopefully come together to provide a car that challenges the competition in the faster class.


A year where I focused on the Sports Specials with the intension of taking the class title and racing in the thunder saloons for my first competitive season in the 888 Astra. 

The Sports Specials season got off to a great start with a win in the first round at brands hatch but was put on hold for a round due to illness. The race was on to catch up the points deficit and after 5X race wins and 2X 2nd I ended the season 2nd in class.

The Thunder saloons season also started off well with promising performances, class wins and chasing the faster class of cars for overall wins. Mechanical issues plagued the last few rounds resulting in a bitter end to the year, but development of the car will hopefully bring more success in the future.


Throughout the year I competed in the sports specials championship of the 750 Motor Club in the car I built myself. It was a tough year as I worked on improving the car every round which allowed me to secure 3 wins and be on the podium for 5 of the 7 rounds. At the end of the year I managed to secure the Class C championship and also the overall 2016 Sports Specials championship.


After completing my ARDS test I moved from Kart racing to cars. I looked at the many different options and finally decided that the Locost championship in the 750 Motor club would be the best for me. I had some good results straight from the off, even a podium at rockingham and I earnt alot whilst doing it, even with the mechanical faliures at the end of the year I took positives from it all. 



Throughout 2012 and 2013 I raced in the KGP Super One series. In my first season I raced on a Birel chassis and I was first rookie and overall 12th place. I then switched to a Maranello chassis for my second year. Throughout the year there were ups and downs and the results weren't what I had hoped for but this allowed me to realise what I wanted to do in the future. 


These were the most enjoyable years of racing in karts I had. In 2010 I had my first go in the NKF championship. This was a championship that visited different club races around the north of the country. In the first year it was just me and my dad and it went quite well but the second attempt in 2011 we joined up with another Dad and lad that had experience in the british championship and went as our own team with me achieving 3rd in the championship and him being the champion.


This was my first full year in the sport. Starting as a novice at the back of the grid I managed to secure 3rd in the club championship at wombwell.
