Matthew has a passion for motorsport. Being brought up around rallying, it was only a matter of time before he was behind the wheel of a car. At the age of just 16, Matthew entered his first rally, with the rest, as they say, is history. 12 years of competing later and Matthew is proving his worth in the world of rallying, building that all important experience. His dedication for Motorsport has also been proven by receiving a first class degree in Motorsport Engineering from Coventry University in 2014 and a Masters degree in Automotive Systems Engineering in 2019.
