After a string of strong results in karts, Heimgartner made the step up to the New Zealand Formula Vee Championship at just 12 years old – followed by seasons in Formula Ford and the Carrera Cup.

The young kiwi had always had his sights set on competing in the V8 Supercars Championship, and competing at home in the V8SuperTourer Series was quickly followed by a drive in the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series in Australia.

It was during this time he caught the eye of those at Super Black Racing, who brought Heimgartner on board for the 2014 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 to steer the team’s wild card entry.

His impressive performance at Bathurst convinced Super Black Racing to sign him for a full season in the V8 Supercars Championship in 2015, with highlights including qualifying third at Queensland Raceway and finishing seventh at Sydney Motorsport Park.

LD Motorsport has now given Heimgartner the opportunity to get back on the grid once again for the 2016 season, after the rookie showed much talent last year.
