Parker Locke

Car Number: 66
Country: United States of America
Age: 17
Team: Victory Motor Racing

The seventeen-year-old San Antonio, Texas racer is one of a growing number of young USA drivers with IndyCar or Formula One in their long-term sights and will join Victory Motor Racing for the 2019 Castrol Toyota Racing Series.

Locke began racing in karts at his local track in New Braunfels in 2015 at the age of 14, stepping into cars for the first time in 2017 in the Lucas Oil Formula Race Car Series before stepping up to full wings and slicks specification cars in the US Formula 4 Championship. He undertook the complete season before combining further F4 events with three F3 Americas racing weekends last season, where he secured three podium finishes.

The New Zealand campaign will be Parker's first time racing outside of the United States, but he is confident that it will be a productive visit that will make a significant contribution to his single seater career aspirations.
