Career[edit]

Karting[edit]

Goddard began his racing career in karting at the age of fourteen and raced in his native Australia.[1]

Formula Ford[edit]

In 2009 he graduated to single–seaters into the Australian Formula Ford NSW Series, competing in the final three races.[1] For the next year, Goddard also competed in Formula Ford Victoria series in Australia. He finished this championship on the third place.[2]

Goddard decided to move in United Kingdom to contest in British Formula Ford Championship in 2011 with Jamun Racing.[3] He had nineteen point-scoring finishes in 24 races and finally finished tenth.[4]

Formula Three[edit]

In 2012, Goddard graduated to the Rookie Class of the British Formula Three Championship, competing for ThreeBond with T-Sport.[5] Fellow Australian racer Duvashen Padayachee was his only class rival, because only Goddard and Padayachee raced the season full-time. Goddard took the championship title with 49-point advantage on Padayachee.[6]

Goddard will continue his collaboration for ThreeBond with T-Sport, competing in FIA European Formula Three Championship full-time in 2013.[7]

Toyota Racing Series[edit]

Goddard participated in the Toyota Racing Series in early 2013 with M2 Competition, finishing seventeenth in the championship, the lowest-placed of the drivers to contest the whole season.[8]
