About Mackenzie Taylor from Mackenzie Taylor
My name is Mackenzie, I started racing when I was 8 and a half years old. At the start of 2017, I was racing full time and spent the first year testing and getting hours in the seat to build on my racing skills.
I was entered into a winter championship in my Honda GX160 where I raced 9 rounds and ended the championship 5th. However, I placed 4th overall in my class which was a great result.
Next, I moved up in class to racing in the Honda GX200 championship. At this point, I was so lucky to have a sponsor come on board to help me with pushing forward. I completed in 8 rounds and finished 3rd overall.
