By now the word is out, I am sitting out of this weekend’s TCR Australia round at Queensland Raceway.
Despite being a paying customer of GRM, I respect their decision to put me on the sidelines regardless of how disappointed I am. While not all information making its way onto websites is completely true around the reasons I am sitting out the event, I will openly put my hand up and admit I have made some critical racing errors while competing in the GRM Alfa Romeo. This year has been a big learning curve... Learning to drive a front-wheel drive car and also joining a team who is also new to the world of TCR.
My dream is to become a professional race car driver and despite winning a national championship and racing a variety of national and state level championships, I do need to work full-time as a sign writer to assist in funding my dream. In my personal opinion, this does not hinder my racing career or my performance on the track.
I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supports me, and in particular my sponsors. They not only support me, but have helped fund my position in the GRM outfit.
My personal team is working hard on securing a plan for me in the future. I'm looking forward to getting behind the wheel again and challenging for podiums in 2020.
