Born in Miami, Florida, but a native of Jamaica, Alex was born in 2007 and made his karting debut in 2015. With the dream of becoming a professional racing driver, he has already made quite a name for himself on the karting scene over the last few years.
Racing is in his family’s blood. His father John is a veteran rally driver who found success in the Caribbean, while his cousin is the former world’s fastest man – sprinter Asafa Powell.
His first taste of karting competition was in the Barbados Regional Championships in 2015, before he then headed outside of the Caribbean to gain further experience. He finished 3rd in the Florida Winter Tour in the Micro ROK category in 2016, also winning the Epcot Challenge that year too. He competed in the SKUSA Summer Nationals and the ROK Cup USA, too, finishing 2nd in the National Championship in the latter.
2017 proved a busy year for Alex, competing in a vast range of karting Championships. He claimed P3 in the Florida Winter Tour, won the Midwest ROK Cup and the Epcot Challenge and was Champion in the ROK Winter Cup – to run through a few of the highlights.
Last year he stepped up to competing in Europe, claiming the title in the WSK Final Cup in the 60 Mini class. He also claimed P3 in the SKUSA SuperNationals XXII in the Mini Swift class and P3 in the Florida Winter Tour, this time racing in the Mini ROK category.
