About Ben
Planned to be a real racing driver before I turned thirty. Rockingham was 6 days after the big 3-0, but nobody's perfect...

Top race highlight
Fighting through the field from 12th to 3rd in the Academy Trophy race having awesome battles with all my new mates along the way.

Racing achievements
1st - Academy (White) 2016 / 3rd - Academy Trophy 2016 / 3 Wins, 9 Podiums, 3 Pole Positions, 3 Fastest Laps

What's the best thing about racing
When you have one of those wheel to wheel races, give it everything and regardless of position/result you shake hands with the other guy at the end

Hobbies
Karting, DIY and (dare I say it...) gardening
