Why the 116 Trophy?
I was invited to the 116 Trophy by fellow competitor Jeremy Woodgate. I felt jumping in at the beginning of a series would be a great way to start my racing career.
I’ve always had a passion for racing, having regularly attended F1 and BTCC races from a young age.
But being from plymouth its very hard, with the closest track, Thruxton, being over two hours drive.
