Parker Thompson

Born in Red Deer, Alberta, Parker Thompson found his love for all things loud and fast at a young age. From motocross to riverboat racing, motorsports were a regular part of family life. Parker’s own racing career, however, has its beginning at the Calgary Kart Racing Club where he started competition at age eight.

Father and son weekends at the track quickly evolved into one of the most successful kart racing careers in Canadian history. By age thirteen, Parker was ranked 3rd in the world, joining the Energy Corse Racing Team in Italy to challenge the World Series of Karting. Since returning to North America, Thompson has been engaged in both open-wheel and sports car racing series, where he has repeatedly demonstrated an ability to win.
