How did you get into karting?

Mum and Dad got me a kart for Christmas when I turned 6. I was riding dirt bikes before that but really wanted to have a go at karting.

What do you love most about karting?

I love the competition and the challenge of trying to be perfect every lap. I love mixed-grid racing.

Who is your major influence in the sport?

Matt Hamilton because he knows so much about racing and setting up a kart.

Who do you look up to in karting or other spheres?

I would like to be a Supercars driver like Shane Van Gisbergen.

What are your goals in the sport?

To represent New Zealand in Italy or overseas and really hope to race in Australia in 2022 if we can. I am looking forward to going to Jnr Rotax because it looks like a real challenge.
