Simon Kane born 9 October 1967 in Sydney Australia best known as a race driver, but now works as a sound technician in television. He started in Formula Ford in the late 1980s and proceeded to Formula Holden in 1989. In 1990 he won the Australian Drivers' Championship and CAMS Gold Star. From there he had a disappointing International Formula 3000 season in 1991, failing to qualify for the two events he entered. He then returned to Australia and spasmodically entered Australian Drivers' Championship rounds in coming years, including a top five result at the one-off 1993 Indonesian Grand Prix. He now races some club events in a Porsche 911.
