One of Australia’s top karters, with multiple Australian championships and a European Championship to his name, has decided to retire from driving.
Pierce Lehane announced his decision to hang up the helmet on social media. He thanked the many people and organisations who have helped him over a successful local and international career that spanned 12 years.
“First of all, Brian Lindsay for his guidance at the beginning of my career” Pierce wrote.
“Troy and Lorraine Farley for everything they have done over the past 9 years. I cannot thank you enough! Dan and Nat Holland from DHR for giving me the start In Europe and for taking me in during my year stint in UK.
“Strawberry Racing for my European Championship winning year in 2015. A special thanks to Tom Stackhouse for being my mechanic that year.
“Thanks to Remo Racing and DPE for all there support this year.
“I would like to thank everyone I drove for over the past years, Chris Dell, Fergus Symes and Ian Black.”
While he will no longer be driving, the Sydney-sider will not be lost to karting. For 2020, he will move to a team management and driver coaching role with Rush Performance AU.
