Jackson Rice

TA2 Champion & Accomplished Kart Racer

From apprentice mechanic, to winning in the TA2 National Series, Jackson Rice is emerging as one of Australia’s most entertaining and inspiring stories.
In 2023, Jackson Rice caught the eye of Push Talent Management when one of Australia’s largest automotive franchises, JAX Tyres & Auto, identified Jackson as a potential face for an apprenticeship campaign.
Citing his natural race craft, but also his personality, Jackson is indeed a future ambassador for brands. Consequently, Jackson was signed to the Push talent roster as a future star.
