Max is the chosen UK driver for the FIA CIK Academy races


Currently competing in WSK and CIK championships

Dedication, perseverance and support

Max started racing aged four, in Bambino Karts; a category meant for six to eight-year-olds. Max found traction in the karting world and by age seven he had successfully tested for Fusion Motorsport in Lanzarote, becoming the youngest ever Fusion team member. A year on, Max is the youngest winner of a major Super One British support meeting event. Age nine, Max is in cadet class, it’s faster and more competitive. He becomes vice-champion for the prestigious Formula Kart Stars series (FKS), taking podiums in all but 2 of the 12 rounds.

By ten years old he’s secured an endorsement from Silverstone and carries their livery, and still does! He’s 3rd in the Dubai O plate, the NKF PFI overall winner, seeded 10th in the Super One British Championships, 9th overall in the LGM championships and last but not least, “Cock of the North champion”.

In 2017 Max joined Strawberry Racing as a factory Tony Kart driver, brought on to develop the Neo cadet kart, Max finishes this season as the No.3 seeded driver in the UK. By December he’s signed with YRDA/Arden Motorsport on their young driver programmes.

Into 2018 and 19 Max joins Kart Republic and gathers help from Oliver Rowland Motorsport. Max’s races now take him abroad for most of the year. Competing in the WSK championships as one of only three Brits competing.

Max is chosen as the only driver to represent the UK in the FIA CIK Academy races.

Having not being able to shake off a flu virus, I missed most of the practicing this week. No expectations for qualifying I went and qualified 4th in my group. Later on I finished the first heat 11th when another driver hit me when I was 6th. Thank you to @karlgibson88 and @forzaracinguk for the help so far 💪🏻 #karting ...
