Let’s hear from Josh…

Pretty early on it was obvious that I was never going to be a football, rugby or hockey player. Both my sisters were really good at sport so I enthusiastically tried everything but I was pretty hopeless to be honest! Then my sister and I tried karting at Buckmore Park when I was 12 and that was the start of a complete change to our life as a family.

From the first novice kart race in September 2006 to winning the Junior European championship three years later in September 2009 I then moved on to four years in single-seater formula cars.

After winning the two-year Porsche Carrera Cup GB (PCCB) Scholarship I raced in PCCGB for two years, winning the championship in my first year with Redline Racing.

I’m delighted to be able to race in Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup again in 2018. I’m keen to get the season underway and look forward to working with my new team.
