Chris Vlok

Car Number: 3

Age: 28

Christchurch based racer and entrepreneur Chris Vlok will compete in all three rounds of this year’s championship, the first time he has competed domestically for eight years.

Vlok is no stranger to the Castrol Toyota Racing Series, having undertaken a full campaign in 2012 in the original FT40 TRS car. He also won in the South Island Formula Ford Championship - taking three victories from four races in the 2011-2012 series.

The 28-year-old also has some fairly serious international experience under his belt too, including a season in British Formula 3 in 2013 where he finished second overall in the National Class with one win and six podiums along the way.

He competed in two races in the F3 European Open in 2012, finishing fifth overall in his first outing, as well as a debut F3 outing earlier in the same year at the Clipsal 500 in the Australian F3 championship.

In 2016 he also raced a KTM X-Bow in the Pro class of the Competition102 GT4 European Series with Reiter Engineering, scoring one pole position and narrowly missing out on a maiden win in the two hour endurance race at Spa Francorchamps.
