Hi, I’m Jono. I am a proud Kiwi, and the third generation of my family to compete in motorsport following my grandfather, father and aunt before me.
Since age 13 I have been at the wheel, with over a decade of GT3 experience driving Porsches, Ferraris, Mercedes-AMG, McLarens and Lamborghinis.
I have established my career in Japan after many years competing throughout Asia. It has been my dream to racing in SUPER GT, a world-reknowned championship and Japan’s Premier Motorsport Series. In 2017, I made that step with Gulf Racing.
