Andre Lafond is an African American racing driver. In 2022, driving for Low Dempsey/Ammonite Motorsport, he was the first Haitian-American ever to win a race in the BRSCC Formula Ford Championship (U.K.) in its 50+ year history.
Starting with karting in 2018, the New Jersey native has not slowed down. Lafond is 100% focused on progressing his racing. An all around athlete, and constantly training, Lafond leverages his discipline/focus while competing on the track. His approach to racing is analytical, making him a fierce and fair competitor. Recruited into the Road to Indy Series, Lafond returned home from racing two seasons in the UK to progress to the highest levels of American motorsports. 



With his accomplishments overseas, Andre caught the attention of none other than Al Unser jr, who personally recruited him to join the Road to Indy Series. Andre continues to race, train and stay sharp while forging partnerships with sponsors with the goal to compete and win at the top in the IndyCar Series.



Building on the previous year’s experience, the results started coming in. Regularly running at the front resulted in two wins and eight podiums in National Formula Ford. Scoring a win at the BRSCC National Formula Ford round at Donington Park was a fantastic way to cap off Andre’s first full season in Formula Ford. Returning to the U.K. to race with the newly renamed Ammonite Motorsport was the recipe for a successful season. Proving to be a fearless yet measured competitor, Andre looks to the next challenge.


Andre started the year testing with Team Pelfrey at Roebling Road. He was up to race pace by the end of his second-ever day in a car and subsequently was recommended to Ammonite Motorsports, formerly Low Dempsey Racing, in the U.K to join the National Formula 1600 Series. With stiff competition from veteran racers, access to top-notch coaches, and the vagaries of British weather, it provides one of the best driver development programs on the planet.

But in order to race overseas, an international FIA license was required. Andre flew across the U.S. to race SCCA Spec Miata National Series, learning how to drive a stick for the first time while on track, competing in the first race on his 19th birthday. In his second weekend of racing the series, Andre finished 14th in a 41-car field on the second weekend, qualifying for his license.

Despite all the pandemic obstacles, Andre arrived in the U.K. ten days later, very excited to hit the track again. In a partial season competing in Formula Ford, Andre was consistently inside of the top ten with several top 5 results despite almost no preseason testing. This experience provided the foundation for regularly challenging at the front in his second season.
