Jonny began rallying in 2010, starting out as a navigator and co-driver, and changed over to driving after a few years. His first stages rally as a driver was in Mayo in 2015 at the wheel of a Vauxhall Nova. He changed to his current Honda Civic, complete with Quaife Sequential Gearbox, last year. The highlight of his career to date has been his first Junior win in Midland this year. Away from the rally stages, he works as a heavy goods mechanic.
