What is your favourite Porsche and why?
Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. Amazing performance with exclusive comfort and technologies to match!
Which racing legends do you look up to?
Colin McRae even though he isn’t circuit related, he was absolutely fearless as a Rally driver.
What is new about the car this year?
New fully adjustable suspension set up and a few new stickers and transfers.
How much experience of racing do you have?
Have you ever won any races? I raced Motocross for a number of years at a novice and intermediate level. I had numerous top 10 and top 5 finishes, came 2nd overall in in a full winter series championship once but only ever won 1 race meeting. This will be my first circuit racing experience!
Why did you start racing?
It's a fantastic opportunity & experience that you may only get one chance at so I decided to grab it with both hands.
Are your colleagues looking forward to attending the races to cheer you on this year?
Everybody that supported the racing series last year is excited to see us get underway and come and support. I also have my family coming to support the team so it will be a great weekend! No Pressure.
What are you most looking forward to about the race season?
Getting started to be honest. Hopefully there will be a great, happy team environment and enjoyment for us all at the race. I also can’t wait to experience all the tracks at racing speeds.
