Age: 17

Date of Birth: 11/02/02
Team: M2 Competition

Reigning Castrol Toyota Racing Series champion and Red Bull Junior Liam Lawson will defend his title in 2020 with M2 Competition.

Lawson was a sensational winner of the 2019 Castrol TRS championship after a thrilling battle with fellow Kiwi Marcus Armstrong, which was only resolved in the final race of the championship, the New Zealand Grand Prix.

Following his breakthrough championship win, Lawson was snapped up by the Red Bull Junior programme and headed to Europe to compete in both the European Formula 3 Championship and the Euroformula Open Championship for Red Bull.

Despite a challenging year - which still saw him take two podiums in his debut season in FIA Formula 3 and four wins and seven podiums in his parallel Euroformula Open campaign - 17 year old Lawson's circuit racing career statistics remain some of the best amongst the up and coming junior single seater drivers in the world today with 36 wins from 144 races. He finished the 2019 season on a high, with an impressive seventh place finish around the streets of Macau.
