About Me

D.O.B: 4/9/1993
Home Town: Blindley Heath, Surrey
Interests: Music, (Indie bands mostly; Arctic Monkeys, Kaiser Chiefs) Food (Favourite is Thai), watching Motorsport, keeping fit.

I was born in England, but moved to South Africa when I was just 1 year old and lived there for 7 years, before returning to the UK.

From the first time I sat in a kart, my ambition was to become a professional sports car driver. I made my first visit to the 24 hours of Le Mans at the age of 7 which cemented my passion for that discipline of the sport. My ultimate dream is to go there to win.

I was very honoured to become a member of the BRDC (British Racing Driver's Club) at the end of 2016.

My Helmet Design:
My helmet design is based on the South African flag (my dad is South African), with the Union Jack (my Mum’s English) below the visor. I also have my name on the side of the helmet, exactly the same as Jody Scheckter (1979 World Champion), who I was named after.
