With proven skills when it comes to both racing on the track and representing his supporters off it, James is now laser-focused upon building an international speedway career representing his beloved Australia on the world stage.
In pursuit of this dream, James is currently undertaking intensive training with three-time world champion Jason Crump while competing in a comprehensive race program in Australia as he makes plans to travel to Europe to begin an international assault.
