I started racing karts at the age of 7, literally received a kart as my birthday present from Mum and Dad.
My first major race win came in 2010 with the 2010 NSW State Championship. I won 2 more State Championships in 2013, 2 additional ones in 2014, plus being crowned Australian Champion in CIK before being selected to represent Australia at the Rotax World Championships in Spain.
Being recognised as the Number 1 Junior Driver in Australia in 2014 was a great personal reward for all the hard work since starting in karting. Being identified by CAMS as an up and coming driver and being part of the CAMS Elite Driver Program in 2014, 2015 and 2016 was made possible due to the commitment and determination of both my team and myself.
2015, I traded the kart in for a Borland Racing prepared Formula Ford Spectrum. Competing in the Victorian State Formula Ford Championship where I had my first breakthrough race win, a number of podiums, and several front row starts. It was a great first year in this new class.
2016 saw me step up into the National Formula Ford Series where I finished 4th. I managed 2 race wins, 2 pole positions and 9 podium positions, along with a race lap record at Winton Raceway. 2017 saw me finish 3rd overall in the National Formula Ford Series with 2 race wins and 3 round podiums
In 2018 I will compete in the pre-eminent open-wheel development category across the globe, Formula 4, in the Australian F4 Championship with the AGI Sport team.
My journey is just starting, believe in tomorrow and continue to watch this space.
Jayden showed us exactly why he has such a bright future, he’s a level-headed and an incredibly skilful young driver who ticks all the boxes. A true professional both in and out of the race car.
I’ve seen Jayden’s progress in Formula Ford over the past 12 months and it’s clear that he’s a talented driver with a lot of potential.
Having given Jayden his first opportunity in an open wheel race it was clear to see he had a huge amount of potential. Throughout Jayden’s successive years in Formula Ford, he has delivered on my expectations. It has been awesome to see him grow as a driver and build his skill set both on and off the track.
As a result of his ability and maturity Jayden is now employed by our team to drive our 2 Seater Formula Ford. This gives our Corporate clients along with the general public a first-hand experience of driving an open wheel race car.
Jayden is quickly establishing himself as a star of the future, his constantly improving results in the highly competitive Formula Ford Series demonstrate he has a bright future.
Jayden was a guest of our Brad Jones Racing team at Sydney Motorsport Park this year and his enthusiasm to improve and understand every part of being a race driver was great to see.
Jayden is one of the most anticipated talents since his move to open wheelers. His natural instinct and eagerness to learn are a true testament to his maturity and commitment to racing.
