Sam Critchley #64

2019 East Coast Champion

What is your favourite track and why?

My favourite track is Buxton because it is action-packed with long straights and tight corners.

Why did you choose your race number?

I chose my race number because a friend of mine inspired me in racing so I chose their number.

Who is your favourite driver from another formula and why?

My favourite driver is Stuart Dining Jnr (from F1s) because he is always supplying action and isn’t afraid to use his bumper and is feared because of it.

What age and formula did you start racing in?

I started racing in Micro F2s at the age of 8 years old.

Why did you or what got you into racing?

My dad told me about it (as he has been making cars for 30+ years) so I went out in Micro F2 and really enjoyed it.

What is your biggest achievement so far in racing?

My biggest achievement in racing so far is probably coming fourth in the Whites & Yellows Championship or winning my first race at Birmingham in the rain.

What formula(s) did you race before National Ministoxs?

I raced Micro F2s before National Ministoxs.

Who inspires you the most and why?

Stuart Smith inspires me the most because he is good at making gaps and moving people out of the way.

What formula do you hope to go into after National Ministoxs?

I would like to go into F1s or F2s after National Ministoxs.
