My father used to race so I grew up around Motorsport. I started karting aged 10 and then progressed into cars aged 15. Since then I've raced various forms of Motorsport including Hot Hatches, Sports Cars, GT Cars, Single Seaters, and Rallycross Cars!

I'm a 2 x British Champion and the first female in History to win a Blancpain Endurance race.

My race results earned me the place as the Test Driver for Amazon's Hit TV Show 'The Grand Tour' working alongside Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond.

HINTS AND TIPS

Take your time, don't try to go too fast too soon. Listen to the instructor as learning where the track goes is the key to going fast.
