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 Asia – particularly in Japan & China – where I am forging a career in the illustrious Japanese Super GT series among other events throughout the region, totally 25-30 races each year.
