Car Number: 53

Date of Birth: 16/01/02
Home town: Christchurch
Team: Neale Motorsport

The multiple karting champion started his race car career in the Toyota 86 series, learning how to drive a manual and the circuits in his first season.

He was a quick learner too and became a regular front runner in his second season winning a race before a big crash at Teretonga put a major dent in his season and left him battered and bruised, but determined to come back. He had proved he had both the speed and the race craft to be a championship contender.

The off-season has been a busy time, with Jaden taking part in the Elite Motorsport Academy and the Neale Motorsport team preparing a new car for his third season. The focus all round has been on upping the game for a serious shot at the title.
