With the fifteen year old only able to compete in two Toyota 86 race meetings last season to remain eligible for the Rookie class this year, Horan has been testing his driving skills in other motorsport codes in the off season with the family rally team - Big Black Motorsport. 

These have included a debut win in the team’s Polaris in his first off road enduro, the Peter Howell Memorial Endurance Race; a class win and 8th overall in Hamilton Car Club’s Hoddle Road Rallysprint and second overall and a class win in the recent Taranaki Tarmac Rally. Out of the car his preparation has also been intense.

“I have spent a lot of time perfecting skills on my simulator,” he explained. “For my fitness programme I've also changed my boxing routine to twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays. I've done a few test days at Hampton Downs and Ruapuna too.

“During those test days, Craig, our team engineer, has been going over data with me and teaching me skills to improve my circuit racing experience. 

“I have also spent some time with driver coach Tom Alexander to  improve those sharp end skills as well and I am very happy that I have made a big step forward so I am looking forward to Taupo and cannot wait to get stuck in.”
