Bennett started his racing career competing in motocross from the age of 8, through to 18 when he competed in the European MX championship.
An accident left him unable to continue competition on two wheels so he made the move to four wheels competing in Rallycross.
In 2017 he finished on the podium 7 out of 9 races and despite scoring the most points that season, he narrowly miss out on the overall title due to dropped point scores; he also got his first taste of World Rallycross action at Lydden Hill in a one-off race.
Towards the end of the 2017 season, Bennett's team XITE Racing built a rallycross spec BMW MINI Cooper Supercar to compete in the FIA World Rallycross Championship, debuting it in the first round of the British Rallycross season at Silverstone.
His 2018 World RX season started at the first round in Barcelona where he finished with a 15th position in a tough line up and wet conditions.
In 2019 Bennett will be entering the FIA World Rallycross Championship once again, backed by XITE Energy and automotive social media site Drive Tribe.
