I started racing when I was only 9 years old. Dad bought us some buggies to bash around in the park, but the grass was always too long. So that idea was quickly over, or so we thought. One day dad decided to take us to the local track and that is where it all began…

The real racing started in 2018, we started to travel to different tracks and started to keep a racing journal on Facebook.

The thing that I love most about RC racing is being able to travel every week to different tracks, the whole family races(including mum) competing with others, challenging our selves, making lots of friends and having lots of fun as a family. We have raced at Keilor Off Road, Knox RC Off Road Club, Shepparton Radio Controlled Car Club, Mildura RC Car Club, Wodonga Radio Controlled car club, Adelaide Radio Control Raceway and Launceston R/C.

2019 was another great year, this was the year we transitioned into Mod class and running both 2wd and 4wd.  Our RC Holidays once again making it very special, we camped out at the Shepparton track, we went to Tasmania in a plane which was another first for us to race indoor on carpet in the Tasmanian State titles and we also traveled to Wodonga and Mildura


Raced in many club meets at Keilor, Knox and Shepparton.

3rd in the Knox Club series for 2wd and 4wd classes

Raced in all the bigger Victorian events and in Tasmania which include the following:

Wodonga Summer Slam,

In March moved into the Mod Class and competed in the following;

MM2019 – VDS round -  22nd in both 2wd Mod class and 4wd Mod Class

Victorian State Titles (Mildura) – 20th in 2wd Mod and 13th in 4wd Mod Class

Wodonga VDS Round – 11th in both classes 2wd Mod and 4wd Mod

Tasmanian State titles – 7th in 2wd Mod, 5th 4wd Mod

Poli Cup VDS Round - 15th in 2wd Mod, 8th 4wd Mod

Coleman Cup VDS Round - 12th in 2wd Mod, 9th 4wd Mod

Australian Nationals – 34th 2wd Mod, 4wd washed out.

My short-term goals are to be more consistent and to navigate around the track concentrating on my line to make me faster.

My long-term goals  through hard work is to compete at a very high level, travel and win a Nationals Title. To continue to help others (especially to younger racers as it has been done to me) and promote this sport through my photography.
