Lazer Safe Managing Director Rob Appleyard first came to know Calan Williams as a young driver when they were both competing in Perth with Fast Lane Racing. Rob had recognised Calan’s talent and potential as a driver and remained in contact with Calan and his father Greg Williams over the next few years as Calan went on to compete on the east coast in the Australian Formula 3 Championship Series. Through his association with the Williams family, Rob offered to sponsor and support Calan in his transition to Formula 3 racing in Europe and on his continued journey towards Formula 1.
