James Golding (born 19 January 1996) is an Australian racing driver who competes in the Repco Supercars Championship driving the No. 31 Holden ZB Commodore for PremiAir Racing.

Career

Early career

A multiple Victorian karting champion, Golding moved into the Victorian Formula Ford championship in 2013, finishing fourth. He then stepped up to the national series in 2014, where he finished third despite only being eight points shy of the overall winner, Thomas Randle.

Supercars

He caught the attention of Garry Rogers, who signed him into his Dunlop Series team for the 2015 season. In his debut season, he finished tenth in the overall standings, beating season regulars such as Aaren Russell and Paul Morris, as well as other rising talents like Macauley Jones.

In 2016, he was drafted into the main series for the endurance events, driving alongside James Moffat in the Volvo S60.[1] In his debut race, the 2016 Wilson Security Sandown 500, Golding crashed heavily on the first lap after the front right tyre deflated at high speed.
