Jay Daniels Clio 182 driver, competing in his second season of racing the Clio, we put 10 questions to him..
1) How did you get into racing?
It all started when I was 8, we have a karting track, Ellough Park just 5miles up the road I asked mum if I could go and have drive, she phoned and booked me on but then they asked how tall I was, I wasn't tall enough!! I was gutted so mum took my horse riding instead!! Then when I was 12 I asked about it again but first I got measured and I was tall enough and I was hooked, the racing bug took hold!! I first started karting doing arrive and drive at Ellough and then got my own cadet kart and worked my way through the different classes and then in 2016 did my ARDS test and had my first arrive and drive in the Fiesta ST Championship but after only being able to do 3 race meetings in 2 years we decided the only way forward was to get my own car so then spent the next year looking at different championships and came across the Clios, we bought the car in February and had my debut race in the April and completed my first full season last year in the Clio 182.
2) What are your goals for 2019?
To build and improve on last year, be more consistant and looking to progress onto the podium.
