Joey Mawson is one of the most exciting talents from Australia, currently trying to break into the European racing scene. Mawson was a 3 x Australian Karting Champion before setting his goals to race in Europe as a teenager.
A podium finish at the Rotax World Finals in the UAE, and winning a round at the Under 18 CIK FIA World Championships were highlights before stepping into Formula 4. Joey was able to take it to Mick Schumacher in the German F4 championship beating the German driver to the championship, where he then made the jump into Formula 3 & GP3 following the F1 calendar.
Mawson scored a podium in GP3 and then moved to the Porsche SuperCup where he also claimed a maiden podium. Not many teenagers would have the courage and determination to pack their bags and leave their family behind, to pursue their goals like Joey did. A great story of a driver who didn’t pave his way from family financial backing, but the talent, desire and never give up attitude.
