Hi & thanks for clicking on this post.
I started driving karts when I was 6 and since have been obsessed with racing and winning ever since.

I work hard at ensuring that I and my equipment are in the best condition and I use what I have available to the best of

my ability to maximise my potential. To date I have won multiple championships including National Titles and will keep working to realise my goals.

Currently I race in the UK in the X30 Senior & Rotax Max classes with Jack Dex Racing and I am focusing on achieving my next goal which is to win UK & European kart series with my long-term goal being to drive professionally.

erships I have built up over the last few years enable me to be competitive against those with a substantially higher racing budget and as such I highly value those who support me, I always give 100% and always go to win!

If anyone is interested please come and follow me on Instagram & Facebook and should you be interested in coming on-board with me and my racing please drop me a message or use the 'Contact me' section of my website.

Out for the last time for 2023 at the WMKC WM Plate meeting and got my 2023 suit from @torqracewear, a prize from @wmkc for the 2022 championship win.

Looking ok in testing although it was tight by a couple of tenths covering many drivers on the grid.

TQ and felt strong but caught a group quicker than i shoukd have with 2 mins to go so rolled off to try and get a gap, rolled off by a chunk, like 2+ seconds and then last lap so push.....was going well but still ccaught the group ahead which compromised my lap but still popped it on P2 so happy enough with that for race day.

Onto Sunday and 2 heats and the Final

Going off P2 felt strong, Heat 1.....pole man wants 2 warm up laps so we go round twice and then go green....into T1 on the outside and the driver on the inside just hard turns into me on the outside......#what apex...... goes over the front of me and takes us both into the barriers...at turn1!!!!!

I get going again but stone cold last (34th) so time to get to work and try to limit the damage....7 minutes of seek and send which sees me take the flag in P15, so ok bearing in mind the start and the damage to the kart.

Heat 2 and hoping for a better start but again, more contact with the same driver but this time not as bad and rejoined in P7, made up a few places but struggled for grip and lost those on the last lap to finish in p7, with a 5s bumper penalty which dropped me another spot.

Made a bunch of changes for the final to dial the kart in 100% to the damp cold conditions so we should be good for the final....just where am i going to start?

So, its P8 for the final which isn't the end of the world, depending on the start.
We go 1st time and it's time to get to work as I need to clear as many karts early so the leader can't make a break for it.

Kart feels.good, tyres feel perfect so time to send.....I get past a few karts and then I see the P1 driver and just concentrate on hitting my marks and as soon as I get there I send, straight in and just concentrate to get a good exit, which I do. Hook up the next 1/2 a lap and I've got a buffer, now head down and hit those marks again and and I strat to stretch it, setting quickest lap after quickest lap the kart is feeling great......I just keep doing what I'm doing until I take the chequered flag 6+ seconds ahead with fastest lap about 6 10ths quicker than the nearest driver.
Big weekend for the team securing 3 WM Plate wins and also.podiums!!
