Recognizing individual and team talent is something our company is incredibly proud of and, every year, we make it our aim to support emerging athletes and friends of Jetcraft around the world.
These are the athletes wearing the Jetcraft logo in 2019:
A Swiss professional tennis player, Wawrinka first began his career at the young age of 14. Wawrinka earned his first ATP Tour victory at the Croatian Open in 2006 and finished in the top 40. In 2008, he teamed up with Roger Federer to win gold medals in the doubles at the Beijing Olympics and was ranked 9th in the world. Wawrinka has also won three Grand Slam single titles in 2014, 2015, and 2016.
Jetcraft is honoured to call this sporting legend a friend and we wish him the best of luck as he makes his way back to the top of the rankings this year.
The Red Bull Junior Team
Jetcraft is proud to support Red Bull Junior Team member Jack Doohan. Jack is the son of Mick Doohan, five-time 500cc (MotoGP) World Champion and President of Jetcraft Australia / New Zealand. Jack began racing karts in April 2011 and won three Australian Championships before moving to Europe in 2017 to race karts, finishing 3rd in the CIK European Junior Championship. 2018 he competed in the UK Formula 4 Championship, winning the Rookie Championship and 5th place overall. We are excited for what this year has in store for him.
