Professional Racing Driver
SAG Precision Stunt Driver
My name is Alex Kirby, I am 27 years old and I am from Newport Beach, CA.
When I was a child my dad took me to a Sprint Car race to watch a family friend. From that moment, I knew my destiny had four wheels and went fast. I started racing go-karts when I was 18 years old and have been very successful in the short time I have been racing.
I began racing karts with BRK (Buddy Rice Karting), then moved on to racing open-wheel formula cars, Formula Ford and Formula Continental. I had a lot of success in the formula car world. In my first year, I qualified for the SCCA National Runoffs, which is a national championship race where the best 3 drivers from each region of the US join together and race to prove the fastest driver in the country. In just my second year racing and first year being in an open wheel car, I placed a respectable 5th out of 28.
In 2016, I raced in the F2000 series and the Porsche Pirelli GT3 Cup series in a 997.2 GT3. In my first year in the GT3 Cup series, I podiumed for three of the races and won two of them. For 2017, I moved into the 991.1 model GT3 Cup car and have also had multiple podium finishes as well as three wins. For 2020, I will be racing a Honda powered Formula 3 car and I am also involved in drifting and plan to compete in that as well in the future.
My dream has always been to become a professional racing driver for a major manufacturer. In addition to racing I am also a SAG-licensed precision/stunt driver and have worked on a number of international TV commercials that have played at major events such as the Super Bowl and the Indy 500.
I am always looking for new sponsors so if you are looking for brand exposure, this may be a good way to get your name to a unique demographic without breaking the bank. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
