Zak O’Sullivan is a rising star in the world of motorsport, quickly rising through the ranks to become one of the most promising young drivers in Formula 2 (F2). Born in Gloucestershire, Zak’s journey into racing began at the age of 8 when he first started karting, displaying an innate ability and passion for speed. He has consistently demonstrated exceptional skill, which has led to numerous victories and accolades. Zak’s career highlights include coming second in the F4 Championship in 2020. In 2021 he was GB3 (formerly Formula 3) Champion by a staggering margin of 164 points. He was also crowned Autosport Young Driver of the Year in the same year. He has been a member of the exclusive Williams Racing Driver Academy since 2022 and he now races in F2 and at the time of writing this blog he sits 12th in the Championship.

What is the 500:500 Business Club Fundraising Initiative?

The Business Club Fundraising Initiative is an innovative programme designed by Zak O’Sullivan to garner £500 of support from 500 businesses from Gloucestershire and beyond, to help fund his racing career. The initiative aims to bridge the financial gap that often hinders talented drivers from progressing in their careers due to the high costs associated with motorsport. By creating a mutually beneficial partnership, Zak offers businesses the opportunity to support his journey while gaining significant brand exposure and networking opportunities within the motorsport community. The fundraising goal is unashamedly ambitious, aiming to cover essential costs such as equipment, travel, and race entry fees, ensuring that Zak can focus on achieving success on the track.
