2017 News

General News


Having won the two championships  I entered in 2016 is beyond anything I hoped for. I raced as well as I could and always had the best of support and back up from my team, KR Sport, and for that I am extremely grateful.


2017 brought more challenges mostly caused by MSA karting being  in a period of significant change and my focus switching as much as possible to exams.


Having won the British and a European title on a Rotax engine in 2016 I chose to race a new class, OK,  in the Junior category. This new class would run a Vortex engine and Vega tyres, both of which were totally new to me. Unlike my Rotax motor which had fixed jetting the Vortex would allow me to adjust the engine as I drove which is something I was first introduced to as a cadet in 2011. The Vortex is a push start unlike the button start Rotax.


Having been almost unbeateable in winter testing a last minute decision by the MSA to withdraw OK meant I had to step up to Senior racing with no preparation.


We raced Senior X30 with some success but I chose to focus on OK Senior which was reintroduced later in the season and was really pleased to become the British Vice Senior Champion but disappointed not to take the title. which was denied me at the last round.


In 2018 I plan to race in Rotax, if it returns and X30 Senior where I will aim to complete the season should funds permit.

I am at the front of every class I am challenged to race in. I am a Championship winning driver  attracting publicity you could benefit from.  My journey could be immense and you could share it.
