Jaylyn Robotham is a 16 year old school boy from Lancefield, Victoria, Australia. Jaylyn had a life changing experience in 2017 when he won the popular Aussie driver search, chosen from thousands of young hopefuls and earning 20,000 dollars, he immediately found himself on the Australian motorsport map.
In 2018 he signed for Push Management’s inaugural junior development program and left the club racing scene to enter the Toyota 86 Racing series.
2018 has been an impressive year for the youngster so far, racing in front of larger crowds and having to learn a number of new circuits. Having missed out of the Bathurst round due to 16 being the minimum age, Jaylyn is still an impressive 6th in the championship.
Opportunities are always just around the corner for this young man, being declined dispensation to race at Bathurst, the teenager, along with Push Management and David Reynold came across to Thailand, where Jaylyn tested a Ford Mustang at the Chang International circuit ahead of the round 9 of the TA2 Asia Championship.
TA2 racing is similar to V8 Supercars, being rear wheel drive V8 saloon cars, but with the traction control and paddle shift to transmissions. The opportunity to test a 525 horsepower V8 race car was a challenge Jaylyn relished along with David Reynold.
The possibility to race in the 2019 TA2 Championship was something the team couldn’t resist, and everybody associated with TA2 are pleased to announce that Jaylyn Robotham will be lining up on the grid for his debut season.
Welcome Jaylyn and all the best in your pursuit to win the 2019 TA2 Championship.
