Aidan Read is the latest star racer to come out of Perth, Australia and with career momentum on his side has clear ambitions to compete at the highest level as a factory endurance racer.

Aidan aims to follow in the footsteps of countryman and Formula 1 race winner Daniel Ricciardo, but is taking a differing route to the pinnacle of international motorsport. Having been a standout performer in Asia’s Formula Masters Series, he successfully transitioned from single-seaters to sportscars, winning on his debut in LMP3 before stepping up to LMP2 at the age of 17. Aidan contested two Asian Le Mans Series races in  LMP3 ranks and rode a wave of momentum into the series’ headlining LMP2 division, winning on his debut. Aidan has transitioned into GT3 racing, having competed in the 2017 Blancpain GT Asia Series as a member of the Lamborghini Junior Program.


In 2018, Aidan will compete in the Blancpain GT Series Asia with Craft-Bamboo Racing in a Porsche 911 GT3R. 


Aidan is a Mechanical Engineering student and athlete at the University of Western Australia, and also works as a driver coach for Arise Racing in Perth.


Together with his management team at BAM Motorsports, Aidan has mapped out a clear path to achieve his ambition of competing at the pinnacle of international sportscar racing.
