Lachlan Ward to carry Racing with Autism Australia name as he officially becomes a Mentor with the national project!
Lachlan Ward, the driver of the Productivity Bootcamp #117 Camaro will be carrying the Racing with Autism Australia (RWAA) name onboard at the season opening round at Newcastle of the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Series held in conjunction with the Supercars Thirty 500 March 10-12.
Last year Lachlan took the Battery World Aussie Racing Car series by storm being the highest placed Rookie driver and almost winning the overall championship, finishing P2 behind series Veteran Josh Anderson, with the title coming down to the last race.
Racing with Autism Australia is a project that supports racers from multiple genres of motorsports that are on the Autism spectrum. RWAA is excited to have Lachlan on board as a mentor to our karting racers and as role model to all members. RWAA have an excellent relationship with the V8 Supercars and endeavour to have a presence at as many events as possible this year.
Lachlan Ward has been working with several members of the RWAA for many years now through his roles as driver coach with NSW Kart Team/School and has now become an official mentor for the organisation.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to be joining forces with such a great organisation. I have worked with many drivers that are part of the RWAA community and have loved every second of it. I look forward to continuing my partnership with RWAA as an official mentor and coach for any individuals who come through RWAA. Motorsport is a great equaliser and one of my goals is to make racing accessible to as many people as possible. RWAA is the perfect way to help me with that goal.”
Jessica Benge is the founder and director of Racing with Autism Australia and is extremely excited and grateful to have Lachlan on board as mentor! Racing with Autism Australia now supports over 40 people across the country. This explosive growth over a such a short period of time has really shown the need for such a grass roots project.
"Lachlan is a naturally gifted, empathetic and knowledgeable mentor for our supported racers, he reminds me greatly of a man named Curtis Fox who was the key mechanic for successful racer and inspiration behind Racing with Autism Australia, Austin Riley"
