Living in Speed – Maxx EbenalSource：AFR Series   Post：2015-11-09
Maxx Ebenal’s biography is a story of tenacity, determination, and overcoming adversity, to
pursue a childhood dream. “I’ve always loved speed and competition” says Ebenal.“From BMX
bikes to snowmobiles, and later of course, fast street cars, I always felt the Need for Speed”.
Although Maxx realized early on that he wanted to make a career as a racing driver, he didn’t
have the financial means to pursue professionally what is the most expensive sport in the world.
However, that certainly wasn’t going to stop Ebenal, who was no stranger to overcoming obstacles
after having gone through two brain tumor operations at ages 13 and 16 years old.
Ebenal was spotted for his driving talent and work ethic and immediately picked up by Track
Torque Motorsports, one of the leading touring car teams in China, where he took multiple
podiums in touring car races before moving over to Formula Renault with PS Racing team in
December 2013. Under the tutelage of triple Formula Renault Champion Pekka Saarinen he
claimed the 2014 Asian Formula Renault 2.0 Vice Championship.
By 2015, he continued his racing in Asian Formula Renault with his brand new Formula, teaming
up with BlackArts Racing’s Dan Wells and Thomas Luedi as a powerful group in the series. “I really
enjoyed the new model Formula Renault. The car is very fun to drive compared to the old model.
I am happy to end the season in 3rd place, and was able to take five podiums and two wins along
For upcoming year Maxx will continue his Need for Speed life and aiming for something different
to expand his racing career. He will work closely with his physical fitness team and be preparing
to start off the next season with perfect condition and performance.
