Racing to win

Teddy Wilson is 17 years old and lives in Rutland, UK. Last season he made the transition from karts to cars, making his single seater debut in the F4 US Championship against a record-breaking field of 37 entrants in April. Driving in team Jay Howard Driver Development (JHDD) Teddy has made an impressive debut with multiple podiums, fastest laps and pole positions in the opening rounds, proving himself highly competitive against more experienced rivals. He finished 7th in the Championship from 51 entrants. Prior to this, Teddy completed two years of international karting competition in OK Junior racing on the European circuit in the WSK Championships and European and World FIA-CIK Championships. His international achievements included third place in the final round of the European Championships at Genk racing for CRG and top three heat finishes at the World Championship in Bahrain where he was forced to retire from the Final with mechanical problems while in fifth position, from an entry of 90 drivers.

From National Competition to European Circuit

Teddy began driving karts when he was six years old and has been racing them since he was eight. Starting out in the Comer Cadet class, his racing at national level made him a regular at kart circuits across England, as well as driving in Northern Ireland, Belgium, Spain and Lanzarote.

In 2014 Teddy was the UK’s most successful cadet driver and MSA British Cadet Karting Champion. Racing with Fusion Motorsport in IAME Cadet, Teddy was never out of the top five in any heat throughout his Super One British Championship campaign and won five of the hotly-contested finals. Teddy also set new lap records for his class at Rowrah (Cumbria) and Glan-y-Gors (Wales) circuits. That season, in the national Little Green Man (LGM) Series, he was also the only IAME cadet driver to top the podium twice and to perform a rare clean sweep - winning all three heats and the final at Kimbolton.

The following year Teddy made his debut on the European circuit, driving for the Strakka Racing Bhai Tech team (formerly Zanardi Strakka Racing) and Forza Racing. Competing in the KF Junior category for drivers aged 12-15 years old his results included heat wins in rounds of the European Championships, 17th in the CIK-FIA World Championship and 7th in the Andrea Margutti Trophy.

Teddy is a MSA AASE student at Loughborough College. In his spare time he enjoys training at the gym, driving on the sim, PS4 and cycling, surfing and skiing when time allows.
