Now, let's start with the questions...
Where are you from?
Hi, I’m from England in the UK .
What do you do?
I’m only 14 so I don’t have a job but I would like to do something to do with cars or engineering.
How did you join Drivetribe?
I found out about Drivetribe when I was searching YouTube for car related things and came across the Drivetribe channel and Clarkson, Hammond and May’s live stream when they launched Drivetribe back in in 2016.
What started your passion for cars?
I think I have loved cars ever since I was born but I really started to be interested in them when I was around 6 or 7 years old and whenever I saw a car I would ask my dad what it was and if it was rare or expensive.
What's your daily drive?
I’m not old enough to drive yet but my dad has always loved the BMW 3 series and that’s what he has now.
What do you think of electric cars?
I think electric cars are promising. I don’t dislike them that much but I think they could be the future of motoring. The styling is OK and the acceleration is amazing but I’m still not sure on charging times or the range. However, it is getting better like the Tesla Model S long range with 390 mile range.
Automatic or manual?
What's your favorite classic car
There are lots of classic cars that I love but some of my favourites are the 1966 Ford GT40, the 1960 Ferrari 250 California and the 1963 Ferrari 330 America plus many, many more.
What's your favorite modern car
My favourite Modern car would be the McLaren 765LT or the new Audi RS6 Avant. I really like big sporty saloons and estates.
What are your hobbies?
Well, I enjoy collecting 1:24 and 1:18 diecast cars, also small hot wheels cars. I also like to play video games like Forza Horizon 4 and Project Cars 2 and I build and collect Lego cars too.
Tell us something funny that's happened to you in a car..
Ok so, usually every month I go to a car show and on the way in, there are some very small speed bumps which are fine if your in a normal car but one time I was walking around and I saw a very low down Audi RS3 arriving and it was too low to get over the speed bump. The organizers had to make a small ramp for the car just so it could get over.
Tell us a song that you particularly enjoy to listen while driving...
I don’t usually listen to a specific song while in the car, I would normally just put the radio on and listen to songs on there.
Are you a Motorsport fan?
I not a very big fan of Motorsport but occasionally I do like to watch rallying or gt3 racing.
Who's your favourite racing driver?
My favourite racing driver of all time has to be Jim Clark. Ever since I watched Hammond talk about him on The Grand Tour I really admire him.
Are you a Clarkson Hammond and May fan?
Of course! I have watched the trio for as long as I can remember.
What's your favourite Grand Tour /Top Gear moment
My favourite Top Gear episode is series 19 episode 2 when they did a road trip across the west coast of America and raced to the Mexican boarder. My favourite Grand Tour episode is the Mongolia special.
What's your favorite tribe
My favourite tribe is All quizzes because I enjoy to take part in personality quizzes and the polls are fun to play too.
What do you think of Drivetribe
I think Drivetribe is the perfect platform for anybody who is interesting in cars or motoring related things. It’s awesome and the community is very friendly as well.
