Describe yourself in 3 words:

What's the best part about your sport?

The different aspects. Meeting great people, experiencing a huge amount of new places, learning a wide range of skill sets and the competitive nature of competition.

How did you start racing?

My father was doing a little bit of club racing... Naturally I one day fell in a kart!

Favourite track(s)?

Sugo SportsLand (Japan), Townsville (Australia).

Winning the Super Formula Championship in 2019... At the time these things don't sink in, but over time it's something that I will never forget. 

Do you have a pre-race ritual and/or superstition?

Jump in from the left hand side. That gets interesting with right hand drive cars.

A cool way of living, that's natural yet obvious.
