Launching his Motorsport career at the beginning of 2021, Ryder's first year of competitive Motorsport saw him take out the Queensland State Formula Ford Championship. This was followed by the 2022 National Formula Ford Championship where he took out a number of podiums, wins and achieved the Rookie of the Year “YOUNG GUN” Award. Alongside this, he would compete in the very competitive National Aussie Racing Cars Championship.
Ryder’s success in Australia saw him cross international waters into New Zealand where he competed amongst the world’s best up and coming drivers in the Castrol Toyota Formula Regional Oceania Championship, bringing it home a few podiums and solid results.
In 2023 Ryder will “send it” in the Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Championship, sporting the bright #101 Local Legends entry with the McElrea Racing outfit.
Although starting his career late, he is determined to make it in this sport as a professional race car driver overseas. He understands the hard work, dedication and commitment required and is committed to the Journey.
