Favourite rally event:
Rally Whangarei – the roads are spectacular. It’s like they were built for rally.
Favourite rally stage:
East West in Canberra, 2014. It’s a stand out for me because everything just came together perfectly – the notes, the driving and the car were in complete harmony.

Rally Queensland many years ago – I went and spectated with my mum and uncle as a teenager.
Career highlight to date:
Competing in an Skoda Fabia R5 spec car this year.
Most memorable rally moment:
Rolling at Rally Australia alongside teammate Adrian Coppin, landing on our wheels, picking first gear and continuing to drive to the end of the stage (with the bonnet up) without missing a beat.
Dream rally car:
A group B Audi Quattro.
Dream road car:
Lamborghini Aventador – they just look cool.
Current road car:
Mazda 3 SP25 GT.
