How I contribute to Student Motorsport
"Hi I'm Ben, I contribute to the Student Motorsport Resource Centre where I write articles on my journey though motorsport and experiences as a race car driver.¬† I'll also be discussing things like how I balance¬†studying¬†and participating in motorsport. ¬†I hope to provide an insight into motorsport, my career and will provide tips and career advice on how to get involved in motorsport. ¬†I'm proud and very excited to be a part of Student Motorsport as I want to inspire young people to work in the industry I love, and I hope my contributions help to inspire people to take part in the sport."
What I Do
"When I was younger I moved with my parents to Spain, I was six years old.¬† I went to an English school there and its then when I started getting interested and took part in karting in Cadet.¬† In 2007 we moved again but this time to Germany where I continued to race in Cadet. ¬†I learned many things whilst in Germany such as skiing and¬†snowboarding, played ice hockey and was a judo champion in my age group.
But in 2012 I finally moved back to England where I continued taking part in competitive karting. ¬†I changed to KTM Junior karting when I was 11, I was the youngest ever to do so, before testing for Ginetta Juniors with Hillspeed racing."
¬†More about me
"I've been racing for a few years now in the UK and have varying degrees of success. ¬†I want to carry on car racing, hopefully touring cars in the BTCC British Touring Car Championship in the future. ¬†I am also currently studying motorsport at Myerscough College but would later like to progress onto university to study this interesting industry."
