Lee began his love for motorsport early in life when at the age of 3 he got a quad-bike for Christmas. At the age of 4 Lee started to visit indoor kart tracks and had a kart made by cutting down an adult kart to suit his size. While this started as a bit of fun on a weekend by age 6 he swopped his cut down kart for a professional zip kart and started to practice at local tracks in the north of England. When Lee reached 8 years old he passed his ARDS test to obtain his MSA National B kart licence and began to compete at his local club championship as a novice where he won three times in his first 6 races to gain his full National A licence. This was all done on a limited budget with his dad Steve as his mechanic. Lee went on to compete at Club, National and European championships in karts. At age 18 Lee was involved in a horrific crash while competing in Europe breaking his pelvis and ribs. After nearly a year out of racing recovering, the urge to get back on track and compete was stronger than ever and on his first race back took victory in the prestigious UkCup at Anglesey. In 2012 Lee made the step up to single seaters in the Formula Jedi Championship. Taking his first wins in the class at the final 2 rounds of the championship at Donington park and securing 3rd in the championship. A year later Lee would go 2 places better, taking 9 wins on his way to the Jedi Crown. Lee is back in 2017 for a full season in Jedi with a new car complete with new livery and colour scheme.
Outside of racing Lee enjoys playing golf, gaming, going to the gym and spending time with family and friends. He has been working with his dad as a house builder, but is currently working on a new venture that will be revealed on the car livery when it hits the track at Brands Hatch in April. On a personal note Lee is looking forward to the start of the season, catching up with old friends and making new ones, the tough competition, battles and game play on and off track leading to a great season of close racing.
