Nathan commenced kart
racing in May 1993 in a 60cc cadet kart, after limited success he changed
class on his 11th birthday in 1994 to Formula Junior TKM in a 100cc kart.
During the next 4 - ½ years Nathan achieved considerable success at both club
and national level and was the leading Project One Racing kart driver during
this period. In January 1999 because of his increasing height and weight,
Nathan joined the ranks of Formula Senior TKM as one of the favourites for
the National title, only 3 months after his 15th birthday. Unfortunately whilst
he enjoyed unparalleled success at club level, bad luck and mechanical problems
dogged his national ambitions. As Nathan was still growing and potentially
would have problems making the weight in the 100cc classes in 2000, a decision
was taken to move into the increasingly popular 125 Open gearbox class and
the new Formula Rotax class.
After only 16 gearbox races in total during 2000 Nathan finished 4th in the
