In 2020, I raced Minimotos and won the Scottish Featherweight Championship.  From there I decided to make the step up to Mini GP bikes which meant travelling across the whole of the UK, from up north near Aberdeen to as far south as Kent to race in the British Mini Bike Championship.

I raced a 110cc Ohvale (these bikes are imported by Isle of Man TT legend and British Superbike racer Peter Hickman).  With 3 rounds to go in the competition, I also entered the 140cc class which helped grow my confidence and bike handling immensely and at the end of the 2021 season, I finished my last round with 6 first places.

I gained a vast amount of knowledge regarding the bikes and the tracks (all of which were new to me).  ​


In the 2022 season, I was racing for the World Championship Racing Team - MLav Vision Track Academy.  The team was put together by Michael Laverty (MotoGP Commentator and former British Supersport Champion) and supported by VisionTrack's CEO Simon Marsh.  The main aim of this team was to identify young British motorcycle talent and create a development programme for the road to MotoGP whilst bridging the gap between UK riders and the opportunities already in place for the likes of the Spanish and Italian riders.  Unfortunately due to other commitments MLav academy moved onto British Talent Cup and Junior GP.

I still had an amazing season finishing 2nd in the Ohvale MiniGP 160 Cup and MiniGP 140 class and a 1st place in the FIM MiniGP 160 UK series which took me to the Word Finals in Valencia.  This was a fantastic experience racing against the top riders in this class from 15 other countries.  Didn't quite get the results we wanted due to the different bike and some mechanical issues but overall a massive learning experience.  Being only 10 at the time, I was one of the youngest riders competing in that category.  I still have some unfinished business in this class......

During 2023, I decided to take a year out of full championship racing and focus on my training with Alex at RentAPitbike who is an incredible coach and has taught me so much in such a short amount of time.  I have spent some time out in Spain gaining experience on various tracks and bikes including my Moto5.  I also took part in some race events at different UK Championships (British Supermoto, National Supermoto, Scottish Supermoto and British Minibikes) with wins at all rounds.

For the 2024 season, as part of the RAP Riders Academy, I will be racing my new Ohvale GP-0 160 evo bike in the FIM MiniGP UK 160 Series as part of the BMB/ACU Road to MotoGP Championship with hope of reaching World Finals again in Valencia.  Check out the Race Calendar section of my website for the dates and keep up to date with everything on my social platforms!

I have previously had great support from local press with 3 articles in The Courier and some air time with Tay FM.  Check out some of the great write ups in The Courier thanks to Graham Brown who continues to follow my progress.
