Bayley competed in karting from age 6 till 12, then stepped into a Hyundai Excel in 2017 at age 14, before progressing to Touring Cars at the tender age of 15.

At the age of 16 he moved up to the V8 powered Marc Cars and competed in the prestigious Bathurst 12 Hour plus endurance races at SMSP, Gold Coast, Winton, Tailem Bend and Townsville.

To take his first step towards his goal of international GT Racing, for the 2021 season Bayley has joined MR for his debut season in the Michelin Sprint Challenge Cup Championship with the proven MR 3-year ‘Sprint Challenge, Carrera Cup, to Europe’ program in mind.

Despite less experience in the 991 GT3 Cup Car than his MR team mates, Bayley's work ethic, determination and quick adapting ability, there is no doubt with confidence Bayley will be vying for the top step of the podium quickly.
