About Team Sonic





Sonic Motor Racing Services was founded by Michael Ritter in 1998 and has firmly established itself as the team best able to guide young aspiring drivers from junior categories such as Formula Ford, to become professional drivers able to work comfortably in a pressure filled environment.

Since its inception, Sonic has delivered a level a preparation and professionalism not before seen in the Australian Formula Ford Championship. This approach has seen the team challenge for the championship over the past twenty years, with Sonic drivers winning eleven of the Australian Formula Ford Championships during this time.

In 2005 Sonic Motor Racing Services initiated the next step in what it anticipates will be the progression to becoming one of Australia’s most successful teams, competing in the V8 Supercar Championship Series. The team entered a pair of 996 Porsche GT3 Cup Cars in the Australian Carrera Cup Championship, alongside its Australian Formula Ford Championship commitments.

By seasons end it was obvious to see that Sonic’s meticulous preparation and engineering skills that had provided the team with many success’ in Formula Ford, had resulted in a new found level of professional in the Carrera Cup ranks. The team enjoyed a successful first year of competition in the Australian Carrera Cup, and quickly moved to cement its position in the Championship with the addition of a third car to the team in 2006. Whilst the team expanded within, so did the Carrera Cup with the arrival of a new model 997 Porsche GT3 Cup Car for competition in 2006. Today, we continue our philosophy of developing our drivers competing across three national categories: Formula Ford, Porsche GT Cup Challenge and Porsche Carrera Cup.
