follow Taine's latest exploits, and race results.
Australian KA3 Senior Light Bitumen Go Kart Driver
Taine is 15 years of age and currently races bitumen go karts in the KA3 senior light class throughout Australia. Taine commenced dirt kart racing in South Australia at 7 years of age.
As Taine is completely deaf in his right ear, he found it difficult to play ball sports and very difficult to hear instructions. He fell into motor racing as it was an independent visual sport, which did not have to rely on his hearing.
In 2014, Taine decided to transit from dirt to bitumen. Taine's family moved from Adelaide to Melbourne in 2015 for Taine to pursue his passion of racing.
