I have owned various Caterhams for many years. However, for 2020 I took the challenge of competing in a season of Caterham Motorsport’s Academy.
For this to be possible, I had to be creative to be able to afford to compete.
Follow my journey where I share how I’ve achieved this and my progress during the season.
I had 2 aims:
1. Successfully complete a full season of motorsport on my budget whether I finish at the front, middle or back of the grid.
2. Encourage others that perhaps they can afford to compete in motorsport and live the dream of being a racing driver.
