Previous Racing History

Nathan started racing at just 6 years of age in karts, until stepping up to Formula Ford in 2017. He won both the NSW and Victorian Formula Ford State titles in 2018 before trying out something with a roof and doors. He was instantly competitive and has had a number of race wins in 2019 against some of the toughest around. From a long time speedway family in Lismore NSW, his father and team manager Stuart was a racer and revels setting up the big Dodge like a sprint car! If ever the motto “drive it like its stolen” applies to anyone in the TA2 field, it’s to this future star of Australian Motorsport.
