What did you want to be when you grew up?

Working in motorsports media was always my ambition.

I don’t remember.

When did you realise you loved motorsport?

When I loaded up Colin McRae Rally on Christmas Day in 2004.

What do you love about motorsport?

Everything is about pushing the limits of what’s possible. Technologically, psychologically, you’re on edge all the time. If that doesn’t get your blood pumping, nothing will.

Who is your racing hero and why?

Sebastien Loeb. Almost a decade of sheer dominance in rallying, on the pace in F1 tests and he got X-Games gold. Doesn’t get more legendary.

Which current racer would you be and why?

Romain Grosjean. I’ve been known to attempt some ropey moves in go karts…

What’s the one car you would love to drive?

Lancia 037 Group B

What’s the one circuit you would drive in that car?

The Isle of Man TT circuit. May as well get the most mileage you can.

What’s the best thing about your job?

Getting to use my skills in a sport I absolutely adore.

What’s the worst thing about your job?

Approvals processes…
