rx8 cup experience

2020 is my debut season in the Cup series.

most memorable racing experience?

First podium in karting, First race win and pole position in Excels.

other racing experience?

I started out riding dirt bikes from age 5 , at age 11 I made the move to go karts and spent the next 4 years karting and competed throughout NSW and VIC at club and state level events. At 15 I had pretty bad crash in my go kart which resulted in a broken hip and 16 months in a wheelchair. My interest and love of the sport never changed and so once I could walk again I moved into the Series X3 Hyundai Excel Championships and have spent the past 3 years there and have been runner up in that championship for the past 2 years with the championship going down to the last event both times ! I cant wait to move in the RX8 Cup Series and continue to develop as a driver in 2020.
