How did you get started in the sport?

What was the highlight of your title winning year?

Highlight of the year was when I became British Champion with a round to spare.

What was your low point last season?

Through out the British Championship I had a successful year and didn’t let anything get me down, I was a bit gutted that there wasn’t a ticket available for me to go to the Rotax World Finals.

Why do you enjoy competing in Karting and the BKC?

I enjoy the thrill of racing and competing at different circuits around the country.

What’s your favourite circuit?

I enjoy racing at all the circuits.Β  I really enjoy racing at PFI, Mansell Raceway and Rowrah.

Who has been your toughest rival?

My toughest rivals were my teammates.

When we do get underway, what are your hopes for the new season?

I was hoping to carry on my success of 2019 in to the 2020 championship in Junior Max.

Due to the delayed start to the season what are you planning on doing with this unexpected time off from racing ?

I will be concentrating on my school work, keeping up my fitness levels and practising on driving simulator games online with friends.

We wish Archie and everyone in the BKC well. Stay stay and look after each other. We will be back in action before you know it #StayOnTrack
