Episode One: Sibling Rivalry
The Hadden family from Brisbane are a tight knit bunch and racing was always going to feature in their lives from the first moment dad Glen climbed behind the wheel of a speedway car at the age of 15.
Alex and Ryan Hadden have been described as ‘near twins’, but like all brothers, their rivalry bubbles to the surface pretty quickly. This rivalry ran all through their sporting careers, from footy teams, right up through karting and now the TGRA 86 Series.
The brothers take to the track at Sydney Motorsport Park to not only battle each other but a 30-plus strong field in tricky wet conditions that are more akin to driving on an ice rink than a race circuit.
