Fraser McConnell began his motorsport career by contesting a variety of motocross, karting and rallying competitions, twice earning the ‘Jamaican Driver of the Year’ award.

He discovered the discipline of rallycross on YouTube and immediately impressed in North America’s ARX2 series, reaching the final four times out of five – and bagging a podium in the last round of the campaign – on his way to fourth in the 2018 classification.

McConnell went on to lift the ARX2 crown the following year, while simultaneously stepping up onto the international stage with Olsbergs MSE in RX2. A podium on his series debut in Barcelona was backed up by a second-place finish in the final event of the season in Cape Town to cement fourth spot in the Drivers’ Championship.

The Jamaican made the switch to the RallyX Nordic Supercar class in 2020, consistently running up at the sharp end alongside eventual title-winner Oliver Eriksson and three-time FIA World Rallycross Champion Johan Kristoffersson as he secured the runner-up laurels in the overall standings. He built upon that success by racing to his maiden Supercar victory in the series at Nysum in Denmark at the start of the 2021 campaign.

A brace of outings in the FIA RX2e Championship later that same year yielded a best finish of second at Höljes in Sweden. McConnell subsequently announced that he would make his European Championship bow in Euro RX1 in Hell, Norway, in 2022.
