A warm welcome to Jacob Heap, who has joined our cash & carry team for work experience this August to help fund his racing car.
1) Tell us about yourself:
I am 15 years old and about to go into year 11. I race cars as my hobby but hope to do it professionally.

Meet up and go away on holiday with friends. I work on my race car. I work with my dad to help pay for racing.
3)How did you get into racing driving?

My favourite track is Snetterton, and my favourite race experience was there 4 weeks ago when I started in 14th and battled to get to 6th.
5)What will your work experience money go towards?
It will help fund my racing car.
6) Where do you hope to be in five years time?
Racing in cars at a higher level, winning championships and being as successful as I can.
