Synergy motorsport was founded by former racer, Justin Cotter, in 2008.
Frustrated by the lack of opportunity available for Australian youth to foster their career in motorsport, Justin Cotter established Synergy Motorsport with one primary objective – to provide equal opportunity for emerging talent.
Involved with motorsport before he could walk, Justin Cotter heads up the engineering & technology program for Synergy Motorsport.
At the tender age of 15 Justin prepared his first sports sedan, winning several Division 1 rounds along the way.
Justin progressed to Go Karts where he competed on an international level and eventually returned home to focus on racing Formula Ford.
Debuting in the category with a self-prepared and funded car, Justin stamped his mark on the series by challenging, and beating, both better-funded and factory-backed teams.
His engineering talent was recognised when, in 2005, Borland Racing invited Justin to join their team as a race engineer. The team’s faith in Justin was rewarded when his precise engineering saw the team win all 18 rounds of the NSW State Championship that same year.
Not content to rest on this laurels Justin spearheaded Borland Racings campaign at a national level, winning the National Formula Ford Championship in 2006.
Eager for more experience, in 2006 Justin, along with John Martin (ex-Borland Racing championship winning driver) visited the United Kingdom where Justin assisted John in a round of the British Formula Ford Championship ahead of the British Formula Ford Festival.
In 2008, the teams debut year, Synergy Motorsport drivers Paul Laskazeski and Brad Lowe dominated the opening rounds of the Australian Formula Ford Championship and from there it was a commanding pace from Laska that had him seal the championship.
In 2010, Chaz Mostert continued the team’s success by winning the Australian Formula Ford Championship with a record breaking number of race wins eclipsing Steve Richards long held record of race wins in a season.
In 2014 Synergy Motorsport prepare up to 5 cars for both state and national Formula Ford series competition.
