“Upon meeting Todd, I was struck by his determination to succeed, his fantastic work ethic, focus and passion for the sport. Despite his age, he is an ‘old head on young shoulders’ and has a level of maturity well beyond his years. Whether it is his own personal development as a race driver, or how he conducts himself with sponsors or fans, Todd approaches everything he does in a focused, friendly, energetic and confident manner, and has forged many long lasting relationships in the Motorsport industry with his personality.
From an engineers perspective Todd is studious, and puts as much effort into his own driving as he does to develop the car. Feedback is a strong attribute that he possesses, alongside his natural speed and driving skills. He has a great mix of raw speed and sensible decision making in races, which is why he won the most pole positions in the 2017 Development Series, and ultimately why he was able to string together a season of great results to win the Championship.
I have been lucky to work with a number of drivers from all over the world, and from this perspective, Todd is world class, and I have no doubt that he will have a long and successful career in the sport due to the outstanding attributes that I listed above.”
“I think everyone in the sport acknowledges the incredible commitment Todd Hazelwood makes to his chosen profession. Few work as hard as he does in the quest to be a professional racing driver.
Todd knows how to deliver results on track but importantly he goes the extra mile for sponsors, outside the car, to ensure they get maximum value from their investment.
For someone so young he demonstrates maturity well beyond his years and a boundless sense of enthusiasm.”
I have been around the motorsport sponsorship scene for many years, when joining Motul Asia Pacific last 2021, I identified an opportunity to expand our name into both the 4-wheel automotive + motorsport space in ANZ.
I immediately contacted Todd, of whom I have known for over 10 years. Todd presented the proposal to our senior management in sales & marketing in Singapore on how the partnership could work with both on-track and off-track activation. Todd has proven to be a huge asset to our business and continues to help us with creating new business opportunities and ways we can grow the Motul brand.
Not only is he an incredible talent behind the wheel, but also incredibly well connected within his industry to extract value in partnerships and ensure targets are not only met, but exceeded.
