Previous Racing History

With no previous racing experience, Christopher Formosa and his family-owned Allgate Racing team plunged into the deep end of motorsport competition in 2017, competing in the V8 Utes Series. Formosa improved steadily over the course of the season under the guidance of Ross Stone, and he and his team made the transition to the SuperUtes in 2018.

Last season had its challenges for Formosa, including some mechanical problems, but he also showed glimpses of potential – most notably at the Townsville round, where he scored a second-place race finish.

Formosa stepped up to the TA2 Muscle Car Series in 2019, in a “General Lee” inspired Dodge Challenge made famous in the television series the Dukes of Hazard. He has been working his way towards the front and is now knocking on the door of regular Top 10 finishes.
