Team Joseph - Sponsors and Supporters
For Joseph to attend, compete and enjoy his karting meets requires the support of his family and friends, competitive equipment and experienced pit lane knowledge. Fortunately, he has all of these in abundance.
Veteran kart racer Alan McLean, who works closely with Joseph and his family through Delta Sport, says:
"I’ve had the pleasure of being involved with Joseph and his family since the very first time he sat in a kart. He took a very conservative approach on his initial outing ensuring he made no mistakes, a characteristic that he continues to show through his very smooth and consistent style. He has rapidly improved during his first year of competition and has made himself a real threat to the front running drivers who have considerably more experience. Given his young age Joseph demonstrates a real talent and regularly outperforms his peers."
"Joseph benefits from a family who not only want him to be happy in his chosen sport, but understand what it takes to be competitive. They are also one of the nicest and most hospitable families in the paddock and will never see a fellow competitor stuck."
"To maximise his potential Joseph has some of the best machinery in the pit lane and a firm plan for his racing career. Future success is almost certainly guaranteed with such a strong package."
"He is a quiet and polite boy in the paddock but as soon as his helmet is on he reveals his talent, desire and a true commitment to his racing. I sincerely believe if Joseph continues to progress the way he has over the past 12 months, there is no reason why he can’t be successful in the upper echelons of motorsport. Anyone who believes a 5 year old cannot be a competitive driver should spend a race day with Joseph!"
