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 in brands including Porsche, Ferrari, Mercedes-AMG, McLaren and Lamborghini.

I have established my professional career in Asia, where I have competed since 2012 – most notably in Japanese SUPER GT where I enjoyed success with the iconic Gulf Racing team.

Today, my cousin – Porsche Junior Jaxon Evans – and I enjoy professional careers in GT racing, with the support of our racing family.
