Career

Early career

Born in Taree, New South Wales, Hook started riding at the age of 14 months. He started dirt track riding in 2005, then moved to road racing in 2008, where he ranked 3rd in the MRRDA series nationally. Hook was selected to compete in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in Europe in 2009 and 2010, finishing the seasons 19th and 12th respectively. He returned to Australia in 2011 and won the Australia 125GP championship on his Aprilia 125 GP machine. Hook showed his diversity by also ranking 3rd nationally on a Honda CBR600, in the FX 600 Championship. In the 2012 season, he rode for Team Honda Australia in the Australia Supersport 600 category, finishing second. Hook also competed in the Petronas Asia Dream Cup throughout Asia, finishing third.[1] His first season on a Superbike in 2013 saw him finish 5th in ASBK and 5th again in 2014 in ASC. He moved to the MFJ All Japan Road Race JSB1000 Championship for the 2015 season and finished 11th overall on his Honda CBR1000RR; he also finished second alongside Dominique Aegerter and Kyle Smith in the 2015 Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race. He also participated in Moto2 replacing an injured Aegerter for the last four races of the season, with a best result of 20th on home soil at Phillip Island.

Superbike World Championship

Hook joined the Grillini Racing Team for the 2016 season, partnering Dominic Schmitter in the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R-equipped team.[2] However, Hook missed the start of the season due to a pre-season injury.[3]
