Back in the Toyota 86 Championship for a second year in the family run team, Sam is aiming to make a significant challenge this coming season.

Last season was the first in a racing car for the karting ace, who competed successfully in Junior Rotax for three years, won the National Schools title and graduated to the top KZ2 karting class, in which he still competes.

Another to love his racing, he reckons it’s too early to say what motorsport career he’d ideally like to pursue, but he knows he wants to succeed and has been putting in the hard yards on track and off-track before the season began to ensure he’s on the pace and a factor at each of the six rounds of the Toyota 86 Championship.
