Thoughts of the 2016 season: It has been a brilliant season for the team and I with plenty of close racing and personal best records broken. The season started out with the first hurdle at Silverstone when I had to start from the back of the grid but still managed to sore a point in the championship. From there the improvements came in thick and fast with a pole qualifying position, two podium finishes, a fastest lap of the race and a new personal best lap time at every circuit this year. I would like to say a huge thank you to the team for all of their hard word and dedication along with all of our sponsors that make it happen and those who support us.
