My name is Lachlan O'Hara and I am 17 years old. My Mum and Dad are my "team" - they do everything from building my current car, through to making my lunch at the track. We are definitely what you would call grassroots, but I have a dream to make a career in motorsport and show that talent, hard work and determination can get you somewhere in this sport. Previous to circuit racing I raced Go Karts for 2.5 years, quickly establishing myself as a strong competitor. In 2017 I moved into formula Vee, and after winning Rookie of the Year, I am now moving into an RX-8 in 2018 and racing in the RX-8 Cup Series. I left school this year to work to help fund my racing and make sure I can put as much back into it as I can.
