“After winning 11 out of 12 midget A-Mains in New Zealand this season in our King Toyota, I believe this year is our year to go and fly the kiwi flag at Indiana (USAC) & Illinois (POWRi) Midget Weeks in June.

To be competitive against the world’s best, I need to be in my own car, so Seamount Racing are kindly agreeing to sponsor me by sending our King car to the USA, BUT, I need your help to run it.

This page is for donations to try and fundraise the running costs and transport costs to get to the 10 shows around Indiana & Illinois – EVERYONE who donates $20 or more will have their name sign written on our car! Plus I have heaps of other neat giveaways, including my signed framed gloves from this season!

If we don’t reach the donation target by 16 May, your credit cards will not be charged.

I really appreciate your support – with the car package we have and the momentum we’ve had, I truly believe there’s no better year than this one to go and try and do New Zealand proud. Thank you for helping me achieve my goals and I hope we can reach the target!





Note: Make sure to leave your name against the donation as you would like it to be printed on the car.

Keep an eye out over the coming days for some concepts of the car with everyone's names on it!




Funds will be used for transport costs to get the car to the 10 events during the two midget weeks in Indiana & Illinois, and running costs (fuel, tyres, parts, etc) for the 10 events.
