Lachlan Mansell

Managing director

Lachlan Mansell has had an obsession with automobiles since a very young age – in fact, his first word was “car”!

Since his early high school years, Lachlan has relentlessly pursued his passion for motorsport media and commentary. He began working in the industry at just 14 years old, managing the media and public relations for Ian Kegg, a front-running competitor in Lotus Trophy national series. Two years later, he started calling state championship events at Sydney Motorsport Park and in 2006, he was appointed as the circuit commentator for the Lotus Trophy at just 17 years old.

Between 2008 and 2011, Lachlan completed a Bachelor of Communications-Journalism (with Honours) at Charles Sturt University and it was during this time Chequered Flag Media was born, providing media and public relations services to drivers, teams and categories.

Since then, Lachlan’s raw passion for motorsport media and commentary has enabled Chequered Flag Media to grow into well-respected operation that services many individuals and organisations within the wider motorsport community.

Ryan Jones

Social Media Co-Ordinator

Ryan Jones is a motorsport enthusiast with a particular interest in commentary and social media.

Ryan learned his commentary craft in the online sim racing scene, commentating some high profile virtual racing events for the established SimSpeed TV network during 2019.

When the COVID-19 pandemic erupted in 2020, the sim racing scene exploded and Ryan was called upon for his expertise in the field, calling some major events alongside other respected commentators such as Greg Rust.

However, Ryan’s true passion lies in real-life motorsport and he particularly enjoys generating social media content to reach an audience of engaged motorsport fans.
