Aron Shields

Having grown up around cars in his dad's workshop, Aron developed a strong passion for racing. His parents surprised him with a go kart for his 12th birthday which led him to start his racing journey.

Aron's commitment to the sport for years, being at the race track most weekends, led him to build his skill and progress up classes with the assistance of successful karter Troy Hunt and his team Top Gun Racing.

Aron has been able to travel around Australia racing karts, most recently competing in KZ2 shifter karts since 2018. He is now excited to move up to the big tracks and start his journey up the 'Porsche Pyramid' with MR.
