Callum Hedge

Car Number: 17
Age: 14
Home town: Auckland
Date of Birth: 17/11/03
Team: CareVets Racing

Masses of talent shown last season when he dominated the Formula 1600 category in New Zealand, winning a title and putting his name alongside some of the greats in NZ motorsport. Much is expected of the St Kentigern School racer, who secured a place on the CareVets Scholarship team after a stand-out performance on the assessment day.

One of the younger racers in the Toyota 86 Championship as just 14, Callum spent the off-season preparing for the championship utilising the programme developed for him as part of his participation in the 2018 Elite Motorsport Academy.

His speed and race craft are already well-proven, but he’s used the pre-season build up to sharpen up and further enhance his skill levels in understanding car performance, set-up and data analysis as he focuses on a title challenge.
