About James
I am extraordinarily privileged to be able to do this, and very thankful for the amazing support of my family -especially my wife Hannah

Top race highlight
My first ever circuit race at Brands - after a heavy crash in qualifying, dicing in the leading pack before getting onto the podium was a dream come true.

Racing achievements
Winning the final Academy round at Silverstone after gaining pole which - typical of Caterham racing - was not exactly a lights to flag win!

Accomplishments outside of racing
Finding enough luck, love and support to be able to go motor racing.

Family
My wife Hannah, my son Alexander (4yrs old) and twin girls, Elise and Erin (who turn 2 in late July)

What's the best thing about racing
The other drivers. Going wheel to wheel while on the limit and having a enough mutual respect to both come out of the corner on the grey stuff!

Hobbies
A lot of things I enjoy very much which are taking a back seat to this for as long as possible.
