Third-generation racer Aaron Seton is a promising young driver making his mark on the Australian motorsport landscape.
At the age of 7, the son of 2x ATCC champion Glenn and grandson of 1965 Bathurst 500 winner Bo began his motor racing career in karts. During this time he moved up in the ranks through Midgets, Rookies, Junior National Light and Junior Max. He established himself as a front runner early, winning the 2007 South Australian State Title, 2007 Queensland Closed Title and the 2007 Bundaberg enduro.
In 2014 at the age of 15, Seton got the opportunity to complete multiple test days at the wheel of a Bob Pearson prepared Mitsubishi Evo X. Once Aaron turned 16, he was able to compete in his first circuit race meeting at the Sydney Motorsport Park round of the Australian Manufacturers Championship with the Shannons Nationals where he teamed up with his father and Bob Pearson, unfortunately registering a DNF. Seton finished off the remainder of the year in production cars including three NSW Production Touring Car events and one more Australian Manufacturers Championship event, recording 8 race wins and 9 podium finishes in 11 races.
In 2015, Seton got the opportunity to join Scott Taylor Motorsport in a 2007 Porsche GT3 Cup Car in Class B of the 2015 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge. He won the championship with 8 race wins and 16 podium finishes. He also competed in 3 rounds of the Australian Manufacturers Championship with Rick Bates and recorded a race win in the Great Southern 4 hour at Phillip Island in a Bob Pearson prepared Mitsubishi Evo X. He also competed in one off rounds in Carrera Cup at Sandown and Australian GT at Sydney Motorsport Park. He finished 6th, 12th and 10th in Carrera Cup and 12th and 5th in Australian GT respectively.
Seton experienced his first laps of the iconic Mount Panorama circuit at the 2015 Easter Bathurst Motor Festival with Production Sports Cars before he joins the MARC squad for the 2016 Bathurst 12 Hour.
