Driver Bio & History
Reid has been driving a go kart since he was 5 and started racing just before his 8th birthday in July of 2003, competing in 6 races. He finished a respectable 4th and 5th in his first partial season. He started the 2004 season with lots of enthusiasm, determination and ambitions of winning his first race. His first concern at the track is making friends and his outgoing compassionate nature earns him some popularity.

Reid Racing put together an impressive first full season in 2004, participating in a total of 35 races at Sutton, Goodwood, Mosport, Innisfil, Gamebridge, Shannonville, and Batavia, New York. The schedule included racing nearly every weekend. Reid raced two full schedules at Sutton Kart Club (SKC) and Toronto Kart Club (TKC). The experience was invaluable.

Reid has obtained a wealth of knowledge racing. He was a member of four clubs in 2005, competing in close to 50 races. He has raced at more than 10 different race tracks with many various configurations. He adapts well to new tracks and challenges. In all he would compete in 61 + races in 2006 amassing 46 podium finishes. In 2007 he would switch to Rotax Junior for part of the season and would focus on that class through the 2008 season (and beyond) starting with appearances at the Florida Winter Tour.

Reid puts tremendous effort into his sport. He is determined and competitive individual displaying an intense focus and a desire to excel. He is learning the values associated with any organized sport.
