Biography

Like any great story in business or sport, Chris’s story began with passion. A passion which to this day he attributes to his success in getting where he is today.

Chris’s passion is Speed, which is probably why he is equally as good at racing as he is with fast paced business. What racing driver have you ever heard of that built his own race car whilst at high school at only 15 years old and under his own financing, which he made from buying and selling mountain bike parts starting at age 12.

It was these lessons in business at a young age that Chris also attributes to his ability to have survived in a sports world dominated by wealth and opulence, well connected families and overly funded young drivers, and having done so as the ultimate underdog, who grew up on a farm in a little town in New Zealand.


Nationality: New Zealand

A Timeline Of My Journey

2007

WHERE IT ALL STARTS

Chris has always been into cars, and started building his own E30 BMW track car after buying and selling second hand cars to make money in high school.

SOUTH ISLAND BMW COMPETITION

Chris was soon racing his self built car, and all of which while still at school. With this being his first racing experience he made a good early impression, with a solid debut season in the South Island BMW competition taking multiple pole positions, race wins, podiums and fastest laps.

2010

Formula Ford (NEW ZEALAND)

In mid 2010 Chris tested a Forumla Ford for the first time and took part in two of the six rounds of the New Zealand Formula Ford Championship at Ruapuna and Timaru. As he stepped up to national level racing he finished an impressive mid field on both outings.

2011

Formula Ford (CANADA)

Chris travelled to Canada for six months in 2011 where he signed with a Formula Ford Team to compete in the Quebec Formula Tour. The six rounds of the championship were spread across Quebec at famous tracks including Mont Tremblant, the Trois Rivieres Grand Prix and the Gilles Villeneuve F1 Circuit. Chris had a promising season in Canada wrapping up fourth place and taking home the Rookie title with five podiums and one win out of 41 cars.

2012

Formula 3

Upon returning to New Zealand, Chris signed with Nelson based team Victory Motorsport for the 2012 Toyota Racing series - a massive step up in competition but proved to be a worth while learning curve after Chris made an impressive Formula 3 debut at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide following the Toyota Racing Series.

European F3

Toward the end of 2012, Chris was given the opportunity to replace an injured driver in the European F3 Open at the Hungaroring in Budapest, Hungary with leading team West-Tec. The very high standard of competition didn't phase the young New Zealander, who fought his way to 5th place in the race, proving he has what it takes to excel in the ultra competitive European racing world.

2013

British F3

This led to a full time drive in 2013 with Team West-Tec in British F3 where Vlok finished 2nd in the championship.

2016
