2016 has been a great year for me and also this blog, it has attracted more attention and encouragement from people that I ever imagined. I have loved writing about Formula One, Formula E and BTCC throughout the year and can’t wait to do the same again in 2017.

Whole Year in review!
In the Christmas of 2015, I started my Bronze Duke Of Edinburgh Award and in the Christmas of 2016, I completed it! It took up a few weekends over the course of the year and made me miss a couple of races of F1. I had to catch up on these races and this wasn’t fun.
As I am 4th year at school, it opened up the opportunity for me to take the “Exite” program as a subject for the whole year. It is a Work Based Vocational Learning programme. It includes a day per week working place in an industry of interest to the young person. As I want to be a Journalist, I chose my local newspaper and they have taken me on up until Easter. It has given me an insight into how a newspaper works and what it takes to be a Journalist. I am really enjoying it and I am gaining new skills in writing.
These are just a few of the articles that I have done for the paper. I have also visited my local council, Argyll and Bute, in the communications department for an insight on how they work and I hope to be visiting again soon!
What does 2017 hold?
In 2017, I hope to be going to Knockhill again for the British Touring Car Championship and to the Ignition Festival of Motoring again. I hope to be going Karting a lot more and I will still be doing articles for the paper. I will be sitting Prelims late January which won’t effect the post on F1 as the season has not started yet.
