What People Are Saying About Oliver

chris-wheeler-indy-200"I've been in the Motorsports game for over 20 years, and it's rare that a talent like Oliver comes into the picture. Not only does he get the job done on the track, but he has shown maturity and a great desire to excel on the business end if it."

Chris Wheeler, Wheeler Motorsports

Though he was new to the national karting scene, he quickly made a name for himself winning in only his third event as a Junior at the Florida Winter Tour. Oliver is one of the hardest working drivers I have had the opportunity to work with. Always working harder to go faster, he really shows his true speed when the racing starts. Known for his consistency and determination to win, Oliver can adapt to most situations and kart setups and find away to drive it fast and to the front of the field."

Mike Maurini, Race Tech Development

gary-carlton-mooresville-200“When I first started working with Oliver Askew, he possessed raw speed and boundless potential, yet he still lacked in certain areas. However, the way he listens and learns is what separates him from all the other drivers I have ever seen. Oliver is the type that puts 100% into his racing program and the last couple years it's really starting show. He is extremely observant in all the right ways. He studies everything people do whether he is watching races, watching videos, or, most importantly, when they speak. The way Oliver listens to what he is told and absorbs the information is a talent that cannot be taught.

The fact that he trusts the people that are behind him and listens to what they have to say separates himself from everyone else. With a driver like Oliver that is always in the shop working on his kart, training in the gym, and learning constantly from people working around him, it’s easy for a team to rally behind and push everything to have the best chance for him to show his skills.

I think most drivers just think being fast is enough, and that’s where they're dead wrong. Oliver has understood without a great team that is behind him 100% he will not have the success he desires and he has the personality to bring this out in a team. Yes, he can drive, yes he good race craft, yes he has great feel for the kart, but all good drivers have this. Oliver has something extra to bring out the best in the people around him and this will pay off as he progresses forward during his career.”

oliver-askew-bruce-macinnes-skip-barber"Having had the opportunity to coach many of Pro Racing's most successful drivers, I have no doubt that, given the opportunity, Oliver can progress and become a force to be reckoned with at the highest levels of Racing. There is Something Special Here, as evidenced by his dedicated hard work, competitive lap times, & willingness to seek out and apply feedback. Beyond that, Oliver is an Exceptional Individual and Genuinely Great Guy.

I would encourage all potential sponsors and race teams to rally behind this Bright New Rising Star. It was a honor to help Oliver enhance his already formidable Racing Skills. I look forward to seeing Great Things from him in the near future."
