RWD all day long!

Scary ride … being a passenger in my girlfriend’s car for the first time.

The car has a full spanner check and service before every event.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

Hopefully become a works driver or become a part of a big team.

I personally stay away from music. I sit in the car alone strapped up ready to go.

I am a lot younger than people think. I am 22 but always told I look 30. Is that a good or bad thing?

Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized horses or 1 horse-sized duck?

I think I’d laugh at 100 duck sized horses so one horse sized duck!
