Lachlan Bloxsom

At the age of 14 years old his family bought a Hyundai Excel Racecar and Lachlan started doing driver training at Norwell Motorplex. Once he had cut a couple hundred, if not thousands of laps at Norwell in his Excel, he did his first Excel Cup Race at Queensland Raceway. From there he has continued to hone his race craft at tracks like Mount Panorama, Morgan Park, Reid Park, Hiddenvalley and Queensland Raceway before making his way into the Toyota Gazoo Racing Australia 86 Series at the beginning of 2021.

Throughout the interupted 2021 TGRA 86 Series with Lachlan only being able to compete at Townsville and Bathurst. Paul Morris along with Erebus Motorsport selected 6 young up and coming drivers to test the Erebus V8 Supercar at Queensland Raceway, Lachlan was one of those six selected and drove to a very high standard on the day of the test.

In 2022 Lachlan has made the jump to McElrea Racing for his first season of the Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge and is determined to put MR on the top step of the championship.
