Bayley Hall

Bayley competed in karting from age 6 till 12, then stepped into a Hyundai Excel in 2017 at age 14, before progressing to Touring Cars at the tender age of 15.

At the age of 16 he moved up to the V8 powered Marc Cars and competed in the prestigious Bathurst 12 Hour plus other endurance races.

To take his first step towards his goal of international GT Racing, Bayley joined MR for his debut in the 2021 Michelin Sprint Challenge Cup Championship. Despite a truncated Michelin Sprint Challenge season, Bayley stepped up to Carrera Cup in the new 992 Cup car for the 2022 championship and as expected took podiums and race wins in 2023.

Bayley has his sights firmly set on becoming the 2024 Carrera Cup champion.
