I Started racing at age 19 at 'C.A.R.S Autocross', soon competing in 'Drag and Wind(ing)'

It all started with a Swift Sport (08) Automatic, the competition started to get more fierce after each event, where I could do very little with my vehicle due to the transmission.

This led me to search for a car that was small, fast, affordable and manual, the Swift GTi caught my attention. I eagerly purchased one, and started to race with this, it took a bit longer than I expected but after 2 years I had won a championship event at Drag and winding.

Since then, I have been introduced to circuit racing which has now sparks a burning desire for more power! 

MOVING FORWARD

I am in hope of entering as much events as I can to better harness my skills while assessing and modifying the vehicle as needed; In each event, my aim is to shave my lap time!
