Previous Racing History

Hugh followed his father Ian from track to track in his younger years, however football was his sport of choice as a teenager. (You have to do something to keep warm in winter during the cherry growing season in Young.) Dad gave Hugh the keys to his Oz Truck for an outing at Wakefield Park and promptly took them off him again when his lap times came within a whisker of the old mans, so Hugh ended up with his own TA2 Camaro in 2017, before stepping up to a Mustang in 2018 and finishing second to Ashley Jarvis in the series. Now part of the 2 car Kubota/Performax Mustang team, Hugh is a regular top 5 runner with Matt MacKelden and in a team now run by father Ian, who has passed on to Hugh not just the keys to the race car, but the keys to the family owned McAlister Motors dealership in Young. Ian still plays an active role in community activities as a mentor, life coach and parole officer for his mate Mark Crutcher!
