Callum Hawkins-Row is a 16 year old racing driver who is described as a rising star and has been recognised as being ‘one of the fastest young drivers out there’. 2017 will see him competing, with Team HARD, in the Dunlop Britcar Endurance Championship in which he has already secured four podium finishes (round 3), including two class wins.
Callum joined Brentwood Karting Academy in 2012/13 successfully winning the Rising Star Driver award and securing second place in his very first Championship before progressing into competitive karting as an independent driver in 2014.
During 2015 Callum was one of the top ten finalists in the highly regarded Ginetta scholarship and, later that year he was signed by Team HARD as their young development driver in recognition of his significant potential and skills both on and off the track.
In 2016, Callum competed in the Fiesta Junior Championship, run by the BRSCC, driving the Fiesta ST 2000.
Callum’s debut season concluded with 6 podium finishes; a race win from pole position leading ‘lights to flag’ at Anglesey; numerous fastest laps and a new 2016 lap record at Castle Combe!
His favourite tracks include Silverstone (which Callum considers to be his home track) and Snetterton and he is looking forward to the new experience of driving in the night races scheduled for the end of the 2017 Britcar Championship season
Callum moved to the Silverstone area in 2015 so that he could attend the Silverstone UTC (University Technical College) where he studies High Performance Engineering. Whilst racing is his number one passion, Callum also enjoys playing piano and guitar.
