Instructor - Pete Felix is my ARD's instructor with multiple championships under his belt. He has really been pushing me this year and is a critical component to my success.
Mentor - Luke Pinder is both a Rally and Track Champion and is passing on his experience to keep my feet on the ground, and learn the art of dealing with race weekends to maximise my focus and preparation.
Jade Developments are in turn supported by two big names in Motorsport.

Milltek Sport - Milltek are the leading supplier of high performance and racing exhaust systems.
Team, family and friends celebrating a double podium
Jade Developments are the Midlands premier Renault Sport specialists, and provide race and track support. They also support my instructor Peter Felix in the VAG Trophy and mentor, Luke Pinder in the Ginetta GT5 Championship.
I first met Jade in 2016 when my father and I were competing with no experience in the Junior Saloon Car Championship. I was impressed with how much faster they made me after just one short mentoring session, and they were impressed by the way I responded.
From this, Jade offered me a place on their multiple championship winning Clio squad and I worked really hard at making this happen. This was a big responsibility to take, but one that I have been up for, and hopefully proven in my results this year.
The combined support of the team, on and off the track, has transformed my driving this year and enable me to take multiple podium finishes, and be in contention for the Championship in my first year.
