Top australian race car driver
As an established and successful race car driver, Josh Hunt caught the racing bug at the age of five with his first dirt bike and then moved onto go-karts at the age of eleven and has continued going from strength to strength in his career even since then. Through his drive and gift of race car driving he propelled his career by waving bye to his family and friends at the age sixteen to compete in a go-kart team in Europe. After demonstrating his strong abilities by competing at the highest levels in the world of go-karting in Italy he built up an enviable platform for the future of his career in race car driving which led to him securing a spot in the American based USF2000 series. From here doors continued to open for Josh with him competing in the 2004 Toyota Atlantic Championship through the support of ChampCar ownership who proceeded to support Josh through his USA open wheeler career.
Going from a young speed demon with a passion for hitting the throttle has led Josh from operating go-karts to more sophisticated vehicles as a result of his track record of proven skill and talent in race car driving. If you think his initial momentum in the race car industry couldn’t be maintained, well this simply couldn’t be any further from the truth. After recently achieving himself a well earned third place in the Asian Le Mans Series and setting up a young drivers development program, Josh is an Aussie racing car driver who is a force to be reckoned with as he continues to forge his strong path in the race car space.
