How you started in Motorsport?
I have no family history in motorsport. My partner resurrected his rallying hobby in 2014 and I took the job of co-driver in his Peugeot 205 GTI. We now have a Honda Civic and started competing in the Welsh National Championship in 2017. I love doing the forest rallying and do not miss tarmac at all.
In addition to rallying, I also compete in the Midland Speed Championship, which is for hill climbs and sprints. I drive an Abarth 500. I only got into this when my partner broke his back and as he could not do any motorsport for a year I was encouraged to take up the mantle. It is great fun and I have continued to compete ever since.

When growing up my dad would often take me to watch events and would take me to watch my brother compete. I have always wanted to follow in his footsteps and be better at it than what he is. In 2014 I competed in my first Road Rally and Stage event and got the bug straight away.

How did you get into Motorsport?
Both of my parents have rallied. My mum no longer does however my dad has for as long as I can remember, so I definitely got the rally bug from him! It first started by going to watch local events, then when I got a bit older I helped out with marshalling and then finally I got into the silly seat and now I am hooked!

Achievements to Date:
Best Mixed Crew at AGBO Stages 2017
2018 - HoE 2nd Overall Championship Co-driver.
3rd in class C at Get It Sideways Stages 2019

2019 Plans:
Compete in as many events as I can and have fun! The other half of 'Team Ginge' is taking a break from rallying so I have a couple of gravel events lined up over the next couple of months which I am really looking forward to.
