Hyper Racer manufactures vehicles for racing, track days and corporate hire.
The Hyper product line was instigated by Jon, after a life long involvement in motor racing as a driver, which including winning the Australian Formula 2 Championship and driving for the Holden Dealer Team with Peter Brock.
After retiring from driving professionally, Jon was keen to explore more affordable types of motorsport. He saw a market for racing car simulators that would provide a real virtual driving experience at very little cost compared to real world car racing. Working with pioneer software writers in the late 80's and early 90's, he developed the worlds first racing car simulator driving cockpits and in 1999 the world's first SimRacing eRacing or eSport centres.
30 years later his Hyper Stimulator cockpit designs are still sold worldwide and used by the world's top real world drivers, while hundreds of manufactures including the top Formula One teams have followed his lead and produce siblings of his original designs.
In 2005 Jon, and his son Dean joined forces, in the design and development of the Hyper Racer range of racing cars. The product line-up has included a go-kart, two tarmac track cars and an off-road race car. All these vehicles have been described as "game changers", and have provided drivers with performance levels previously unheard of, at an affordable price.
