Bethune has been one of the stars of domestic Formula Ford racing over the past couple of years. In 2017-2018 he was runner up in the national Formula Ford championship and won the South Island series. He was the South Island Formula Ford champion again in 2018-2019 and also took second in the national standings.

He has an impressive list of wins in karting dating back to 2011, having won multiple South Island and North Island championships. Josh also contested the US Formula 4 Championship in 2019 gaining his first experience of slick tyre high downforce junior single seaters.

With testing in both the earlier generation Toyota FT50 and the current FT60 cars behind him, he feels he is well prepared for the season ahead.
