|press release||3 February 2017|
As the 2017 karting season kicks off, there have been exciting things happening over at JMD Motorsport and Engineering.
The team welcomes back Joshua De Stefano who unfortunately missed the entire 2016 season with a hand injury. Although Josh is still in the final stages of recovery, he is determined to get back onto the racetrack and prove why he has always been a frontrunner.

Along with the return of Josh, JMD also welcomes two new drivers to the team.
Firstly, Coady Gorringe, competing in KA3 Junior Class. Coady has the passion and focus of a great driver that is backed strongly by the support of his family. JMD is looking forward to working with Coady and his family, not only to provide increased support but also to share knowledge and increase Coady’s proficiency as a driver.
Also joining the team is Cadet 12 competitor, Ben Miller. Though the youngest and least experienced driver in the team, Ben has demonstrated skills both on and off the track and is showing great promise for future development with JMD.

Despite all that is going on at JMD in 2017, team principal Matthew De Stefano will not be completely missing in action on the track. In order to stay up to date with the karts and tracks, he will be competing occasionally at meets across Victoria. However, Matthew's main focus is developing and teaching drivers in all classes from cadets through to seniors.
A race team as successful as JMD Motorsport and Engineering could not accomplish so much without the ongoing support of Pole Position Racewear who provide our drivers with fantastic race gear, CC Racing who bring the horsepower to JMD, and Extreme Marquees for providing a great pit area the JMD team are able to work under.
