The first professional racecar driver with autism. Raising awareness one lap at a time.
CTV W5 | BOY WITH THE RACE CAR BRAIN
Winner. Champion. Inspiration.
Austin Riley is a multi-time champion, the first professional race car driver with autism, and above all, an inspiration for all who've met him. His motto, "Just because you have autism, it doesn't mean you can't do great things", is backed by his success both on and off the track.
His racing career has taken him all over the world where he's proven time after time that he's one of the most talented and fastest drivers on the grid. Despite his daily struggles, he's overcome adversity and risen to top levels of motorsports, all while inspiring and empowering others and raising awareness for autism.
After becoming the 2022 overall Champion in the Blue Marble Radical Cup North America, Austin is back in 2023 to defend his championship but this time he will be competing in the highly competitive 1500 Engine Class. Throughout the 2023 race season, Austin will be looking for other racing opportunities in IMSA and SRO.
