From a very young age William has been interested in racing. His dad Steve had raced at National and International level in single seater formula cars and photos and conversation about his dad’s racing history sowed the seed for a great passion for the sport which has nurtured his own determination and ambition to succeed in a career in motorsport at the highest level.
From the age of five years old William got his first Bambino kart and at weekends would drive around the Rye House Circuit in Hoddesdon behind an instructor. He very soon progressed to circuits like Blackbushe, Red Lodge and Forest Edge. William demonstrated a remarkable natural ability and was soon driving a Zip Comer cadet kart at other circuits including Shenington, Rissington and Kimbolton. His karting career was born.
