Loco Energy Racing bolster Bolger’s international Rallycross plans.
Under a multi-year partnership, LOCO Energy Racing will support Bolger on his Rallycross journey; which will see the youngster compete in the sport internationally on a full-time basis in 2017.
Bolger, who is mentored by LOCO Energy Brand Ambassador and World Rally legend Alister McRae, is currently preparing for the second round of the Queensland Rallycross Championship at Lakeside Raceway in Kurwongbah on Saturday, August 6th.
“The combination of all-wheel drive, heaps of power and racing on both dirt and tarmac is just awesome,” Bolger explained.
“I am really grateful to have the support of LOCO Energy Racing and will do my best on track to repay their faith.”
Bolger, who is a second-generation racer from Queensland, has been testing a current spec Global Rallycross Lites car under the guidance of McRae for the past year.
“Sean has a lot of natural talent,” McRae said. “His enthusiasm to learn and dedication to achieve his goals is quite humbling.
“I am working with him to ensure that he is ready to take on the overseas competitors, some of whom have been driving rally cars from a very young age.
“Having LOCO Energy support both of us is icing on the cake as it puts us both in the same stable at LOCO Energy Racing.” McRae continued.
LOCO Energy Managing Director Marc Blackburn was extremely pleased to welcome Bolger to the Loco Energy Racing family.
“LOCO Energy is proud to support our McRae-Bolger program,” Blackburn said.
“Sean is an inspiration to young drivers and is already demonstrating how focused he is.
“We have no doubt a LOCO champion is on the horizon,” Blackburn added.

Gold Coast schoolboy, Sean Bolger is still years away from getting his learners permit but is already poised to step behind the wheel of a rally car.
The 13-year-old Coomera resident will make the transition from go-karting prodigy to rallycar driver when he competes in America’s Global Rallycross Championship lites class next year.
Bolger will be the youngest driver to compete and will feature in selected rounds of the 2016 competition in the hope of making it a fulltime gig in 2017.
“It is an awesome opportunity and I will certainly be making the most of it,” Bolger said.
“We have a lot of work to do to get ready for the first race but I am excited and I am really looking forward to getting back in the car next week.”
The AB Paterson College student got the thirst for racing from his father Robbie, a former stunt man and Australian drifting champion.
“He inspired me and when I was younger I wanted to be just like him,” Bolger said.
“We used to get PVC pipe and put it on the back tyres of our quad bikes and drift around the property.”
It is this ability to show flare and compete in a range of conditions that attracted Bolger to rallycar driver as opposed to the more traditional pathway from go-karts to V8 Supercar racing.
Bolger has gone under the guidance of international rally star Alister McRae and the seasoned professional is impressed by what he has seen.
“He is a fantastic kid,” McRae said.
“It is a big jump going from karting to rallycross but it is an incredible opportunity and I am extremely impressed at how committed Sean is.”
