NETWORK: Altatek Racing
Altatek Racing was founded by Glenn Jagger who is driven by his passion for helping young talent succeed in motorsport.
Established in 2020, Altatek Racing seeks to open up pathways for drivers during the early stages of their career.
After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Victorian-based team fielded competitors in both the Victorian State Formula Ford Series and Australian Formula Ford Series in 2022.
Altatek Racing hopes to guide drivers into the pathway they aspire to, ensuring they have the correct support in place to succeed throughout the journey.
The support in place includes access to a sports psychologist, as well as former Super3 Series steerer Hamish Ribarits as a driver coach.
Jagger is passionate about developing young talent in Australian motorsport.
“We specialise in kids that have come in from karting, stepping into the next category and we will develop their skills and get them ready for their racing career,” he said.
“We will develop them their driving standards, driving skills and work with them on the physical and mental aspects of the sport.”
In its inaugural season, the team fielded Matt Holmes and Kobi Williams in Spectrums in the Victorian Formula Ford Series, while sister outfit Altatek Consulting Racing ran Jack Clifford and Nico Mendez.
Jagger was pleased with the outcome of his team’s maiden year in racing.
“I think it went better than I thought, I didn’t go into the year with any expectations,” he reflected.
“After our second round at Winton, we were competing up the front with the big names of Sonic [Motor Racing Services] and really for the rest of the year we were upfront with Sonic really and it was only due to a couple of mishaps that we didn’t get the results I believed we deserved really.”
While Holmes and Williams will be remaining with Altatek Racing, with the latter stepping up to the Australian Formula Ford Series, the team is actively looking for drivers to finalising its roster for 2023.
Despite being a new team, Jagger has national and global plans for his team.
“I’d like to see us expand out of Formula Ford and hopefully get into other development categories, whether that be Super 2, Super3, Porsche Sprint Challenge or Porsche Carrera Cup,” he declared.
“That’s where I would like to see it go and eventually try and get into the global racing world as well.
“So we do have high expectations of this company, and we’ve got big goals to try and achieve in the future.”
