Jacques Goodman Racing 2021

BREAKING NEWSAKC Round 5 has been postponed due to COVID and the Race of Stars has been cancelled due to venue track closure! This means that the Qld State Cup will now be our Major Event for 2021, so please get on board and support me for my birthday week-end!


Named after the Formula 1 World Champion, maybe I was always destined to be in motorsport. My racing started in hire karts in 2017, ending up 2nd in Australia for the SODI World Series. After two years of continuous podium finishes, it was time for a new challenge and we bought our very first kart – an Arrow X2 that came with an x30 engine (we actually bought it home on the roof rack of our car!). We later discovered that the kart had been owned by Adam Mercer (National Champion), so the chassis certainly had some good heritage.  

We are now in our second year of racing, upgraded to an Arrow X4 chassis, bought a Rotax, sold the Rotax and bought another x30… during this time we’ve worked hard to go from the back of the grid to the front and even getting our first podium!! As a small family team with a limited budget, we are immensely proud of our achievements to date – my Dad is Chief Mechanic, Photographer and everything in-between, Mum basically funds my addiction and my brother is junior mechanic and number 1 supporter!  

In 2018 he underwent Open Heart Surgery due to a congenital heart defect he’s had since birth. You’ll notice my support for the HeartKids Charity on both my race suit and kart livery. I try and raise awareness of the charity wherever I can and hopefully this small gesture goes some way to raising awareness of congenital heart disease and the awesome work the HeartKids Charity does.

Finally, I can’t thank those enough who have supported and sponsored me over the last couple of years and look forward to welcoming new sponsors on board as we grow and achieve all our goals. We might be a small team, but we have passion by the bucket load! Remember – We work together, we win together and we lose together!

Jacques Goodman Racing #16


Our goal for 2020 was simple, to get a podium… and we achieved it! Through all the challenges we faced with Covid, limited racing, limited budget and starting from the back of the grid at the beginning of the 2020, to get a podium in our last race of the season is an incredible achievement – a great TEAM effort!

So our goal for 2021… it was to achieve a ‘B’ Grade license and move up to TaG 125 Light, well we’re happy to announce that we’ve already ticked that box and we’re only half way through the season. So our next goal is to prepare for some major events towards the end of the year, the biggest of these will be ‘The Race of Stars’ in November! Prior to that we will continue our club race week-ends and look forward to heading to Newcastle for the last round of the AKC and to Warwick for the State Cup… Watch this space!

Single Round Club Meet Sponsorship

It goes without saying, racing is expensive! However, we didn’t get into this sport without fully understanding the financial commitment we had to make. We are a small family team with limited budget that we make go a long, long way. We buy new parts if we essentially need them or find second hand ones if we can make that work to keep costs down. Considering what we have achieved to date, we are incredibly proud of where our budget has taken us!  

But we didn’t do it all by ourselves – that’s why we have some amazing sponsors who help us out! The way we work with our sponsors is by asking them what they can do to assist us with the cost of purchasing parts, lubricants, tyres, fuel etc and therefore they know exactly where their money is going! An average club day race week-end is approx $500 – below is a list of items that we are always on the look out for new sponsors to assist with! 

As with all sponsors, we work with them to see how we can assist them in return and ensure this is a mutually fair arrangement for all parties involved – call us on 0406 086 869 to discuss a full range of options we have available.

Test Day Fee: $25
Race Entry Fee: $80
Race Fuel: $25
Race Oil: $20
Tyres: $275
Lubricants: $25 – $50 (WD-40, Inox, Chain Lube, etc)
Replacement Parts: Average $50 – $150 per race



Tyre Sponsorship - Per Round

We currently run MG Reds for all our competition racing. This is a hard tyre and lasts for about 1 test day and 1 full race day. Therefore we will use 1 set every race week-end at a club round and 2 sets per round at any major event.

Cost Per Club Round: $275 per full set.

Cost Per Major Event: $550

Engine Sponsorship

We currently run the IAME X30 Engine, which needs a top end rebuild after every 5 hours of testing and racing and a full engine rebuild after every 10 hours. Obviously this is a an absolute requirement for us to stay at the pointy end of racing and keeping our engine in the best shape possible. We have spent a long time seeking the best in the business to rebuild our engines and therefore built a strong relationship with a local engine builder who offers us incredible value for money and who we trust with our prized possession.

Rebuilds start from $450 and we are looking for a Sponsor who will help with the cost of maintaining our engine throughout the season. Our sponsor will have their logo/design placed on a special engine and air box sticker kit to advertise their business, which will be seen at the track and through our social media channels.
