the team

Experience, expertise and expression

Max joined Kart Republic in 2018. Led by Dino Chiesa, “the Italian technician and talent scout, famous for having discovered some of the greatest drivers in recent years (Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, just to name a couple)” –

Max is in the right place at the right time and is surrounded by the best. His dedicated, full-time, Kart Republic mechanic and engineer is responsible for ensuring professional and thorough equipment preparation. This includes surface table chassis alignment and engine dyno analysis ensuring Max’s equipment is in perfect condition every time it arrives on track.

In preparation for the future, Max already has media training from Louise Goodman, an award-winning TV presenter and journalist. It’s never been a better time for partners to join Max’s team and be a part of his journey to the pole.

1 of only 3 Brits competing in the WSK and CIK championships

Mentorship and guidance

Max has professional mentorship from Oliver Rowland. A British racecar driver who is currently competing for Nissan e.Dams. full-time in the 2018-19 Formula E season. Previously competing for Manor Motorsport in the 2018 WEC season, and was also previously the young driver for Williams F1 Team during the 2018 Formula 1 season.

Oliver Rowland runs his very own karting team aimed at producing the next generation of winning racing drivers via his team, Oliver Rowland Motorsport (ORM).

With Formula 1 teams chasing young guns over older, more experienced drivers; Max is on the right path, with the right people.

“Max joined us earlier this year after 15 months helping develop a chassis that wasn’t competitive and ultimately getting it very close. I was very keen to get Max onboard as his performance on the other kart was exceptional. Since joining ORM he showed great speed, excellent maturity and great work ethic. He came very close to clinching the British Title.”

– Oliver Rowland


“I’ve worked with and raced against many drivers during my career. You start to get an eye for the special ones. This is absolutely clear in Max’s case.”

– Oliver Rowland

Owner of ORM / Formula E driver for Nissan e.Dams

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 ...
