Sebastian Priaulx was born with racing in his blood. Son of three-time FIA World Touring Car Champion Andy Priaulx MBE and grandson of single-seater racer Graham, it wasn’t long before the third-generation racer was lighting up the timesheets on the kart track.
Starting at eight years of age, the Guernseyman enjoyed early success with multiple karting titles in Cadet, Mini and Junior Max championships, as well as winning the Guernsey Kart Club title aged fourteen. The next stop for the prodigious young talent was car-racing.
Priaulx made the transition in the hugely popular Ginetta Junior Championship, making his debut at the end of 2015 in the Winter Series before tackling a full campaign the following year, with a stunning maiden campaign seeing him finish as the second best rookie on the grid.
The icing on the cake was a storming title success in that year’s Winter Series and his rise up the ranks continued in 2017 as Priaulx sensationally visited the podium thirteen times, including the top step on seven occasions, on his way to finishing second overall in the championship.
A move into single-seater competition and the fiercely competitive Formula 4 British Championship beckoned for 2018. A sensational debut saw Priaulx take a race win in only his third race in the series, with eight more podium finishes following including a second victory.
With that experience under his belt, Priaulx will embark on an exciting new chapter of his career this season in the British GT Championship, one of the world’s foremost domestic GT series, behind the wheel of a new Ford Mustang GT4 with the renowned Multimatic Motorsports team.
