The Moffat surname is synonymous with Australian motorsport, but James Moffat is not looking to ride on the coat tails of his famous father, Allan.
In his first two seasons with Nissan Motorsport, Moffat has shown to be a driver with true grit, great passion and a thirst for success.

This year he moves to Wilson Security GRM, looking to add to his single race win in the Volvo S60. 

After four years of successful karting, he moved into circuit racing, competing in the competitive Lotus Trophy in 2004, finishing second in his debut season and claiming ‘rookie of the year’ honours.

In 2005, he progressed to the V8 Ute Racing Series earning himself another rookie title and finishing seventh overall.

Moffat switched to the Australian Formula Ford Championship in 2007, finishing third before stepping up to Porsche Carrera Cup.

In 2009, Moffat advanced to the Development Series, finishing second in the Championship. He was also awarded the coveted Mike Kable Young Gun V8 Supercar Award for the sport’s best new talent.

In 2011, Moffat joined Dick Johnson Racing in the main series and remained with the team for two seasons before switching to Nissan Motorsport.

His highlight at the team was his maiden race win, scoring victory at Winton in 2013, plus his second place finish alongside Taz Douglas at Bathurst last year.
