I have been involved in motorsport since the age of six. I was obsessed with racing from a young age so I began with Moto x at 5 years old, competing in local championships. I was hooked and so began my early years in cadets in karting gradually working my way up the ranks to junior level at the age of 15.
My motorsport career really kick started in the renowned BRSCC Mazda MK1 with grids of up to 48 cars. This was my stepping stone and after winning many rounds, and the Autumn Championship, I was hooked. One year later I moved into the MK3 Championship. I really wanted to challenge myself and was lucky to get sponsorship partnerships in place for 2 years to compete in the Clio Cup UK. It is a fantastic championship, wheel to wheel action with plenty of television coverage being aired on the BTCC package. I ended the year coming away with the Graduate Cup.
I dabbled around in between championships to try and find out my next challenge, one being the BTCC G55 Supercup, coming second in my first ever race. This was a fantastic boost having had no testing at all in the front wheel drive car. That year turned out to be a fantastic year as I was also awarded a member of the British Racing Drivers Club as a Rising Star.
An opportunity came for me in 2016 to drive in the British GT with Team Hard bringing home the Silver in their maiden year.
I have taken the last few years (2017 and 2018) off to form an academy karting team for the young stars of the future. I found that there really isn’t a ready platform for Karting for the important early foundations of education and teaching for natural talent going forward up to top level motorsport. After many talks with Tony Gillam of Team Hard Racing the Stilp Hard Academy was born. It is proving to be very successful with the young talent we have so far in the Honda Cadets class. We are forever evolving and growing into more classes as we move forward.
