Race Series Experience
I am a UK based racing driver competing in the Renault UK Clio Cup for Ciceley Motorsport and also studying Sports Marketing at Leeds Beckett University.
Racing: In 2016 I will be competing in the Renault UK Clio Cup with Ciceley Motortsport sponsored by Primex Plastics Ltd and PLASgran Recycling Ltd.
Having started in racing in Karts at the age of eight I graduated to the Ginetta Junior Championship in 2010 and 2011. In 2012 I took seven podiums including five wins across five race meetings in the Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup. In 2013 I completed one race meeting in Ginetta G55 which culminated in a podium finish. 2014 saw another two one off outings, on in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB and in the Ginetta in a very last minute deal. For 2015 I secured a drive in middle of the season for Support Our Paras. Unfortunately I was unable to complete the season.
Sports Marketing: Having had to find sponsorship to compete in various race series I have developed an interest in marketing side and the business of sport. I wanted to understand more about this industry and back up my real world experience with academic knowledge.
I am hoping my background gives me the opportunities to better my learning and provide real life case studies and examples to the work I complete at University.
Specialties: Racing Car Driving, Sports Marketing; sponsorship, social media, digital media.
