THE JOURNEY

Spike has spent the last 8 years developing his race craft in different car formats. After a brief stint in social karting – more a casual entrée to get a taste for the sport – he began working with race coach Michael Reedy in intensive sessions using road cars on track days.

After making contact with Anglo Motorsport, Spike began testing in Formula Fords. In 2009, he raced at three meetings, making his debut at Wakefield Park before a round at Barbagello and then the last ever race at Sydney’s famous Oran Park. Spike went on to race a Kent Formula Ford in both the NSW and the Vic series in 2010, placing 2nd in both.

Deciding that Europe was the necessary next step, Spike headed to the UK in 2011 to compete in the British Formula Ford Championship for Jamun motorsport. At the end of the season, he competed in the Formula Ford Festival where he was part of a team of three that won the International Country Cup.

Following the end of 2011 Formula Ford season, Spike started testing in the national class of Formula 3 in the UK with T-sport. He went on to compete in the British Formula 3 International Series National Class in 2012, subsequently winning the title.

In 2013, Spike began racing in the FIA European F3. He competed for two seasons (2013, 2014), whilst also racing in the Toyota Racing Series in New Zealand during this time.

Moving from open-wheelers to Cup cars, Spike competed in the Porsche Carrera Cup in Germany and the Porsche Mobil 1 Super Cup.

In 2017, Spike is looking forward to a tilt at the Super Trofeo – Middle East & Asia in the Lamborghini Huracan LP 620-2.
