• Alex Powell

Career

Alex was born in Miami, Florida, in 2007 but is a native of Jamaica. He made his karting debut in 2015 and has made quite a name for himself on the karting scene already, over the last few years. Racing is in his family’s blood, as his father, John, is a veteran rally driver who achieved success in the Caribbean.

Having started racing closer to home in the Caribbean and USA, he stepped up to competing in Europe in 2018, claiming the WSK Final Cup title in the 60 Mini class. Alex officially joined the Mercedes junior team in 2019, where he went on to win the ROK Cup Superfinal (Mini ROK) and 24° South Garda Winter Cup (Mini ROK) – to name just a few of his highlights from the season.

Alex then stepped up to OK Junior and Junior ROK categories for the 2020 season and remained in OK Junior racing in a number of different international series in 2021, finishing P2 in the WSK Euro Series and P3 in both the WSK Super Master Series and WSK Final Cup – where he competed in OK. He’ll move up to OK full-time in 2022.
