Kevin O’Hara is a 22 year old racing driver from Donadea, Ireland. Kevin began his career racing karts in the Irish National championship at the age of 10. Since that young age Kevin has achieved many career highlights including representing Ireland in karts, winning the Asian Radical Championship in 2009 and he has also been nominated for the Motorsport Ireland Young Racing Driver of the Year Award on three separate occasions in 2009, 2011 and 2012.
Kevin has amassed a wealth of experience racing both in Ireland and spending two seasons racing across Asia in sports cars and Formula Renault proving his speed and ability on both occasions.
