How did you get into motorbike racing?

My dad always wanted to race so he pushed me into it, it’s a good job I love racing!

Favourite circuit?

Donington. It’s just down the road from me, I have so many good memories, from watching Moto GP to getting my first podium.

Career highlight and why?

I don’t really have a career highlight that stands out. That’s what I’m working towards.

What do you do outside of racing?

Outside of racing I pretty much train, work and sleep. I don’t have a lot of time for much else. But I like to be adventurous if I can be!

What is your ambition for racing?

My ultimate ambition is to be multiple world champion.

Do you have a pre-race routine?

I can be superstitious prior to getting out on the track, but I don’t really tell anyone what my routine is…

Do you have any idols?

My biggest idol is Rossi, he is the GOAT (greatest of all time). He’s more or less the reason I got into racing apart from my pops. However, Lewis Hamilton is definitely an idol too, he’s relentless with his lifestyle and then is still able to turn up and win races.

What are your hobbies away from the track?

My hobbies include bicycle riding, whether it be on a road bike 0r MTB. Running, boxing, go-karting and Netflix!

Favourite film?

I don’t really have a favourite film. I love so many I can’t remember them from the top of my head. Superbad is pretty funny though.

Music interests?

My music is very close to me. I listen to it so much all the time. Music that relates to me usually has me in an instant… I could go on about this subject for ages, but my music varies with a lot of genres. Hip hop / rap is probably my most listened too though.
