Alexander Berg

Car Racer

My name is Alex Berg. I am 17 years old, born and raised in Calgary, AB, Canada. I now live in Buford, Georgia, temporarily staying in Daventry, UK, for the 2024 racing season.

My father, Allen Berg, raced in Formula One, in 1986 and made his career in racing. In all his lifetime, Allen has been involved with racing, and therefore ever since I was born, like father, like son, I have naturally always been surrounded by racing.

I speak 3 languages having gone to a French immersion school for 6 years. I speak English as my primary language with my father and speak Spanish with my mother.

In 2020, I was selected by eKartingNews.com as one of the 18 best kart racers in North America to participate in a Mazda Motorsports USA Factory Team Scholarship Shootout. The prize of being selected was to be a Mazda Motorsports Factory Team driver and to compete (2021) in the Spec MX-5 Challenge with the Factory Team.

From the 18 drivers, I earned a spot in the 2021 Spec MX-5 Challenge for the Mazda Factory Team, finishing 2nd in the championship, with 3 wins and 5 podiums!

I work just as hard off the track, as I do on track. Throughout my short time in car racing, I have been able to create various business partnerships, including R&L Project Freight Forwarders (Vancouver BC), BBC Chartering (Leer, Germany), ATNA Pharma Consulting (Raleigh, NC), EasyDrift Technology, (Gainesville, FL).

In late 2023, I was selected as a winner of the Team Canada Scholarship (TCS), and competed in Britain representing Canada in the Formula Ford Festival and the Walter Hayes Trophy, at Silverstone and Brands Hatch.

Representing my country at two international racing events in the UK was an honor.

As said above, my goal in life is to be a professional racing driver. I do not know the future opportunities that can come my way; so I would be overjoyed to make a living driving racecars professionally of any kind!

As of November of 2022, I have been hired by Ligier Automotive to be their designated test driver. I had the honor of being the first ever person to drive the new Ligier JSF4 22, which is making its debut in the 2024 F4 U.S. Championship.

2023 was my third year racing cars and my eighth year in motorsport. I raced the #08 Doran Motorsports Group Ligier JSF4 in the F4 U.S. Championship powered by Honda and achieved multiple podiums and race wins.

I am currently racing in the ROKiT British F4 Championship with Fortec Motorsports. It would not be without the support of my partners, whom you can find on my website, that I would be making my debut season in the UK.

My work experience on the coaching side includes working as an instructor/assessor for Mercedes Benz Research & Development North America. As well as several years of one-on-one coaching in various types of vehicles. I primarily do work for Allen Berg Racing Schools as an instructor, in not only the mainstream formula car programs but doing specialized work for them as well.
