EARLIEST RACING / CAR MEMORIES
With my first ever race meeting I managed to win the handy cap race, and that was the start of my racing career.

FAVOURITE SERIES TO FOLLOW
F1

FAV EVER RACING DRIVER
Michael Schumacher and Ayrton Senna.

COMPARE YOUR RACING STYLE TO WHICH DRIVER?
Michael Schumacher and Ayrton Senna.

FASTEST CAR EVER DRIVEN
Ferrari.

SCARIEST RACING MOMENT
It was not an easy season, but the most memorable race was at Phakisa where I had to win to keep my Championship alive. Three laps into the race, while leading, my throttle got stuck wide open. I probably should have stopped by cutting the engine, but instead I adapted to the problem and used the On / Off switch as my throttle to bring the 600hp animal home into first place. What a rush!

FAV RACING VICTORY
Go Kart National 1992 all the fast guys qualified at the back of the grid due to a drying track.  I started in 21st place and won by half a lap in the wet. I went on to win all four races that day.

FAV LOCAL RACING TRACK
Killarney, Phakisa , Aldo Scribante and Kyalami.

FAV INTERNATIONAL RACING TRACK
Spa Francorchamps and Magny Cours.

MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO…
Getting behind the wheel of a race car again! I am really looking forward to the paddle shift, slicks and wings that will make it a prober racing machine.

EXPECTATIONS
Bringing my A game every single outing.
