Aiden Jackson: Aiden is a star in the making. A promising young driver who is entering his first F1® season and who idolizes his teammate, Casper Akkerman. Jackson is seen as a success story, having climbed the ranks of F2. Aiden is easy to like, showing a good facade to the cameras. Behind the scenes, however, he’s struggling to make the transition to the big leagues. He was expected to be signed by one of the bigger teams, but his situation has taken a sharp turn which is already being talked about.
Casper ‘Cas’ AkkermanKnown for his coldness and lack of common sense, Casper is a firm hand determined to get his team out of the midfield battle. His calm temperament and relentless determination have served him well throughout his illustrious career. However, with a crop of young talent making their way, he feels the pressure of trying to stay on top of the competition despite being in the twilight of his career.
Devon butler: The Braking Point antagonist. Devon is more than an arrogant bigmouth trying to make a name for himself. Highly respected on the court but with questionable Devon behavior off the track which leaves a lot to be desired. Always ready for a witty comment or scathing advice, Butler uses his encounters to put himself in the shoes of any driver who considers a threat. Love it or hate it, Devon Butler aims to become a living legend in the world of Formula 1.
Brian doyle: Brian is the direct link to the team leader, and he is responsible for making sure everything runs smoothly. Doyle spends much of his time as a go-between, conveying messages, racing strategies or resolving complaints within the team. He has established himself in sport and runs a well-oiled machine. A larger than life character who lives and breathes Formula 1, Doyle is on his feet when everything is going well, but crashes into the asphalt when things don’t go as planned.
Zoe Akkerman: Casper’s wife and the foundation of his world. Zoe has been on the scene for several years and knows the sacrifices necessary to keep her husband competitive. Zoe is always ready to listen sympathetically and say a kind word, no matter where her husband is in the world. Mother of a young daughter, Lily, Zoe is the only person to know the demons Casper faces as he competes with the new generation of pilots who have burst onto the scene.
