On today’s episode we’ve got Australia’s international driving sensation, Jake Parsons, who is taking Japan by storm. We sat down with Jake and had one hell of a chat tracking his career journey across the globe. Here is a taste of some of the topics we got stuck into throughout the episode:

  • Where has Jake been living/racing these past eight years?!?
  • The BAD start in karts to racing the U18 Karting World Champs
  • Transitioning to Duratec Formula Ford with Synergy 
  • Road to Indy - the international journey begins
  • Japanese culture & Hooly’s obsession with vending machines
  • Japan’s motorsport programs, engineering & marketing (Take notes Supercars)
  • Japanese Super GT300, Super Taikyu & Formula 3 racing
  • Tokyo Auto Salon (from visitor to exhibitor)
  • Game show! Japan vs Australia Trivia
