Who is Mitch Lukasz?

Mitch Lukasz is a 24 year old from Crafers, South Australia. In 2013 he will compete in the Hi-Tec Oils Australian Suzuki Swift Racing Series. He has the commitment and determination to succeed at a national level of motorsport.

Mitch attended Rostrevor College from Reception to Year 12. Throughout his 13 years at the college he maintained high academic standards and graduated in 2011 as a College Prefect, Egan House Captain and College Swimming Captain.

To further his life's passion in motorsport Mitch is currently studying a Combined Degree in Petroleum & Mechanical Engineering at The University of Adelaide. "I've always been intrigued by the design and operation of race cars. I'm studying engineering to better understand the equipment around me and apply that knowledge to my driving."

Motorsport Experience

In 2008 Mitch made his driving debut at Collingrove Hillclimb in his Dad's 1974 Datsun 260Z. The following year he showed genuine promise as a graduate of the Southern Districts Car Club Junior Development Program. In the years to follow he has developed his skills as a driver in local South Australians Hillclimbs with prominent results. In 2011 Mitch won his class at the Mt Alma Mile and was runner up at the South Australian Hillclimbing Championships.

2013 has so far proven that his long awaited circuit racing career will begin. In February he competed at the inaugural Australian Suzuki Swift Racing Series Drivers' Challenge. Posting competitive results all weekend, Mitch's natural speaking abilities and confidence allowed him to shine in all media assessments and interviews, whilst his driving compared outstandingly to regulars of the circuit racing discipline. Although a runner up in the competition, Mitch has gained a wealth of experience from the weekend he hopes will form a solid foundation for the start of the 2013 season.

In 2013 Mitch hopes to compete as regularly as possible in the Australian Suzuki Swift Racing Series. With aspirations of one day competing at Lemans, Mitch is hopeful of a successful debut season which will lead him into a more senior Australian racing category in the coming years.
