“Finished runner up in the 2014 NEMCRC PI600 championship, led it all year until 1 mechanical and lost by just 8 points, collecting 2 clubs lap records around Croft along the way.

Started looking to pursue road racing ambitions, moving classes to Supersport 600, on Yamaha R6 also preparing an ER6 Kawasaki Supertwin.

Made roads debut at the Scarborough Gold Cup in 2015, qualified and finished 11th in Gold Cup B race, against some very experienced competition and also, finished 7th and 8th in 600 B race, getting down to some great lap times, with only 1 dry days riding.
