Name: Matthew Round-Garrido 

Nickname: MRG 

Current Championship: TBA 

Driver Bio: Born to a Spanish Mother and English father, I started karting in Spain as a hobby in 2006. After a few years of very casual karting in 2009 I got my ARKS license in the UK and we competed in our first race in October. In 2010 we finished 8th in the Easykart Cadet championship and also made club level and Superone appearances in the Comer Cadet, Honda Cadet and Super Cadet classes. In 2011 we won the Easykart cadet championship and the Ellough Park Libre Cadet championship. For 2012 we moved up to Junior TKM as despite only being 11 years old I was too heavy to be competitive in the Cadet classes, we went on to win the Trent Valley Kart Club championship and seeded in 15th place in the Superone championship with a maiden podium at Clay Pidgeon that season. In 2013 we successfully defended my title as Trent Valley Kart Club Champion, won the Continental Cup at PFI and improved to 9th in the Superone championship, this time with a maiden win at PFI. In 2014 we improved again to 4th in the Superone championship, recovering from being 21st in the standings mid season. For 2015 the plan was to make another challenge on the Superone Title and after winning the Shenington Kart Club winter championship and getting picked as the 'pre-season favourite' I once again struggled with my weight so we decided to focus on cars and I achieved my ARDS license. In 2016 we competed in the first half of the Junior Saloon Car Championship which included my first pole at Rockingham and first podium at Snetterton, for the second half of the season we competed in the last three BRSCC Formula Ford Northern and National championship races in which I achieved our first win in cars. In 2017 we won the Formula Ford Star of Anglesey and competed in a number of the National Formula Ford championship rounds including a best result of 4th at Oulton Park. In 2018 we won the Northern Irish Formula Ford Championship and finished 3rd in the Formula Ford National championship.
