I’m very happy to announce that I will racing in the VLN Championship for Walkenhorst Motorsport in the Purple Dot M240i GT.
This opportunity to take my hobby and now make it a fully professional career is a huge step in my life, and I would like to thank everyone who has supported me.
I started my career 4 years ago with Graham Brunton Racing. Having never done karting, their driver development programme helped me gain the valuable knowledge and skills needed to have this opportunity of becoming a professional driver at a high level.
Without my sponsors I would never have been able to race in the first place and be able to achieve what it is that I’ve dreamt about since I was a kid, watching my godfather Dario. Dario has been a huge input in my career giving me praise when I deserve praise and giving me a lecture when I need lectured. And coming from him, I was sure to listen.
My Mum, Dad, Sister and Grandparents have been hugely supportive throughout and have believed in me ever since I first sat in the car not even knowing what a clutch was. My relatives have all been equally supportive and have always told me I would do them proud. My family have grown hugely ever since racing. Having the support from my race team Graham Brunton Racing and the support of Ur App Pro/ The Cookie Jar Foundation, they have become part of who I view as family. Many close friends have been created through racing and I’m proud to see them grow in the sport as I have done.
I hope that this step is the first of many great steps in my career and this opportunity is one I will continue to grow with all of my supporters in mind while I continue to work hard.
