The 23 year old automotive Service Advisor doesn’t have a traditional karting background on his motorsport CV, having started racing in a Toyota Levin on the Meremere dirt track.
The lack of a conventional background, however, didn’t stop him winning on debut in the North Island Formula Ford Championship, proving he definitely has the skills required to progress in the sport.
Not unreasonably, he has set his sights high for his first season in the Toyota 86 Championship. “I’m targeting the rookie championship title and a place in the top five overall,” he said.
“I wanted to compete and do well in arguably the top touring car category in the country and the best next learning opportunity for me as a driver.”
Alex has been putting in plenty of testing in his ex-John Penny TR86 under the wing of Action Motorsport who will run him in the forthcoming season, which begins in November at the Taupo Motorsport Park. He’s also secured backing from Paerata Rise and 2 Cheap cars to make his championship campaign possible.
