******************************* ABOUT HUGH BARTER *******************************

Hugh was born in Nagoya Japan on 15th September 2005. His mother, Natsuki, is Japanese and his father, Chris, is Australian.

Hugh has always loved anything that moves—his rocking horse, his bike and, of course,

his toy cars. Even at age three, Hugh was fixated on driving. While watching the V8 race at Phillip

Island Victoria, he spotted a racing simulator and wanted to drive. Despite having to ask for help

operating the pedals because he was too small, Hugh collected a crowd of spectators driving around

Mt Panorama - not an easy track to drive. At the end of the race, people cheered. Hugh was hooked. All he could talk about that night was how much fun the simulator was.

Hugh was given a PlayStation 2 with pedal and steering wheel for his fourth birthday, and then as his love for driving grew stronger, he received a go-kart for his fifth birthday.

As soon as Hugh was old enough to get his license in September 2012, he did.

Since then, he has spent almost every weekend on a race track. Hugh has a very clear goal: to win the F1 World Championship.

From age seven, Hugh has been racing as a Cadet in Australia races. He has been very competitive in Cadets where most of the other drivers are between ten and twelve years of age. His lap times are similar to his competitors, and he consistently finishes in the top quarter of the field.

He “can’t wait” for race weekends and is always pushing to improve his race craft. Hugh listens to feedback and makes the desired corrections,and is technically very strong. Hugh as extraordinary self-discipline and understands that racing takes a lot of hard work and persistence. He is very conscious of his health and education, and he understands the commitment required to race at the top level. He is inspired to reach his dream of becoming a F1 champion by reading autobiographies of past and current racing champions.
