IMG_8678Parker Thompson was born and raised in Red Deer, Alberta and got behind the wheel of his first kart at the age of eight. Thompson’s decorated career started out as a pass time he shared with his father racing out of the back of the family half ton truck in Calgary. No one knew that Parker’s extreme passion for all things loud and fast would turn him into a championship-winning fixture in many of the world’s top racing events.

Thompson produced one of the most successful kart racing careers in Canadian history. Highlighted by being ranked third in the world at the age of 13, and moving by himself to Italy at the age of 14 to compete for the European title. Thompson has carried his immense passion and success into professional motorsports. Every level of motorsports that Thompson has been given an opportunity in, he has produced wins in. At just 19 and only three years into racing Formula Cars, Parker already holds the record for most wins (7) in the Canadian F1600 Super Series Championship, along with the title. Parker has also racked up wins and poles in the USF2000 Championship, the official feeder series to Indycar. His most notable performances have come in 2017, when he became the first racing driver ever to sweep wins at the F1 Grand Prix of Montreal and the Streets of Toronto with Indycar in their respective support series.

On and off the track, Thompson demonstrates what it means to be a professional. Parker is entering his fourth year running Drive to Stay Alive, a campaign he created to combat texting and driving. Since the campaign’s inception, Thompson has spoken to well over 100,000 High School student across North America on the dangers of distracted driving.
