Jamie Larsen (2021-) 12th in 2021, 2nd full season in 2023

Jamie Larsen may be a household name in the world of speedway as 1NZ in both Sprintcars & Minisprints, but before that the Larsen name was renowned in the world of NZ 4×4 Trials! Parents Owen & Sharron Larsen won the series an unprecedented five times in a row between 1992-1996. Only Dan Cowper has won so many titles, with the record standing unmatched for 20 years.

Making his debut in Trials in 2021 with a brand-new Nitro Custom, Jamie Larsen & Jacob Higgens would claim a Top 10 finish at Round 4 before going on to finish 12th overall that season. A Wildcard appearance at the Suzuki Extreme 4×4 Challenge would follow before having a season off.

The team is back for 2023, with some adjustments made to ‘Nitro Turtle’ for another shot at the title!
