Mondello Park, 2013

 

My interest in car racing began after a few years of fun trackdays

In both Mondello and Kirkistown, having no previous racing history, it came as a complete surprise to both myself and family  that this hobby would now become the one that is most enjoyed by myself.

 

Following that, I moved onto experiencing single seater driving at Mondello driving school and it was from this that I decided to purchase a Leastone Formula Vee.

 

My rookie season began in 2013, where I won my first heat in Bishopscourt. That season ended with me taking 3rd place in the rookie championship.

 

I managed to get myself another 3rd place in the B championship in 2014 and am hopeful on entering into my 3rd year, to settle in well, with a drive to achieve more podium positions.

Remain as a team member with Leastone, racing my Formula Vee and with good tuition and driving experience, achieve a few podiums throughout this season.

GT Academy 2012 European Final

 

Prior to the 2015 season I have taken part in 2 races – one at GT Academy in 2012 at Silverstone and the Fiesta 6 Hour Endurance race at Mondello in late 2014.


My background in racing is almost entirely virtual. In 2011 I was the fastest Gran Turismo player in Ireland and also ranked in the UK Top 20. In 2012 I became the No.1 Gran Turismo player in UK & Ireland and in turn competed in the European GT Academy race camp final at Silverstone after just a week of real track experience. 


I hold an A license in iRacing, with a current iRating of 4781.
