Jack Doohan, like the majority of racing drivers, started his racing career in go-karts. His first season, the SKUSA Super Nationals, was in 2012 when he was 9. He continued in go-karts until 2017, and during his 5-year stint, he recorded two Championship wins in the Australian Kart Championship for both the KA Junior and KA2 series.

Doohan has revealed that seven-time Formula 1 World Champion Michael Schumacher was instrumental in getting him started in racing cars, with the German driver gifting a young Doohan a go-kart, sparking his interest in four wheels.
