“From an early age cars fascinated me. I grew up watching F1 in the 1980’s, the era of hugely powerful turbo charged cars and close racing, and I remember thinking to my 4 year old self ‘I want to do that’. 38 years later and my passion for speed and competition has grown and I am fortunate enough to be lining up on some of the most competitive grids in the world.”
