Brock Gilchrist

Car Number: 10
Age: 16
Home town: Auckland
Date of Birth: 08/07/03
Team: International Motorsport

With a solid rookie season behind him that included two podium finishes at Teretonga and Hampton Downs, the 16 year old is back with International Motorsport and looking to build on a solid first season with race and round wins the goal in this season's Toyota 86 Championship.

Gilchrist was one of the stars of the championship last season, bagging two podiums at Teretonga Park and Hampton Downs as a fifteen-year-old rookie in the NEXUS Logistics-supported car run by International Motorsport.

He began racing at the age of four on a quad bike before moving to karts at the age of seven. Years of developing his race craft were put to good effect in his debut car racing season last year. A race win and third in the rookie standings marked him out as one to watch before he joined the Toyota 86 Championship for the final two rounds of the 2017-2018 championship, where he secured an impressive seventh place in Race 3 in a weekend of nose-to-tail racing at the final round at Hampton Downs.
