Perth-based Euroformula Open Championship racer Calan Williams will continue his eye-catching rise through the junior formulae by beginning the 2019 season with the Castrol Toyota Racing Series in New Zealand.
Williams captured the attention of many in Europe last season, running rounds of the Euroformula Open Championship winter season with Fortec Motorsport before undertaking the full 2018 season.
In one of the most competitive single seater championships in Europe, his best performance came at the Monza round where he qualified fifth for the first race and then put the car on the second row in third for the second race. He was taken out in both races but fought back to finish inside the top ten twice.
Williams started racing at the age of seven in karts winning multiple club championships and a few state level events before moving to single seaters in 2015. He won his first Formula Ford event in the Western Australian State Championship and went on to secure second overall in the 2016 Western Australian State Championship. He went even better in 2017, winning the Australian Formula 3 Championship.
