Following a life long obsession with motorsport, in early 2005 Dylan was finally able to take the plunge and purchased his first go-kart in the form of a 'slightly used' PCR MX100 and a KT-100J. With this purchase began the steep learning curve for both driver and pit crew, despite a few spins along the way and more than a few pit errors come November 2005 Dylan was ready to make his debut as a racer.
Following his introduction to racing at the end of 2005, Dylan attacked 2006 with enthusiasm and determination that belied his outdated equipment. Showing great promise in his first season in Senior National, Dylan was able to walk away with several trophies and 5th place in the Club Championships. Facing diminishing race fields in Senior National and looking for a greater challenge, Dylan made the jump to Clubman Light for 2007.
Throughout 2007 Dylan underlined his budding talent with a series of outstanding performances in what is arguably the toughest Clubman Light club field in the country at the Oakleigh Go Kart Racing Club, and put together a stellar race meet to take third in the 2007 Australasian 'C' Grade Titles at his first attempt. A meet that included a drive that was considered by many to one of the best drives of the year, when on slicks in heavy rain with the rest of the field on wets Dylan was able to finish fourth over 7 seconds ahead of the 5th place finisher.
Finishing 2007 with 5 trophies and 8th in the Club Championships, Dylan began 2008 with the aim of building racecraft through the first six months of the season before begining a transition to Leopard Light via an MKC prepared 2008 Tecno V12S powered by an MKC IAME Parallia Leopard engine. Unfortunately a leg injury sustained in the second half of the season limited our racing and delayed Dylan’s introduction to Leopard racing until 2009. With a plan to start testing with our Tecno V12S and Monaco GP6 28/30 early in January 2009 Dylan will be raring go come the start of the 2009 Season.
