Inspired by his late father Rodney Crick, who won six Australian Super Truck titles, I began racing karts in 2014 before progressing to the Toyota 86 Series in ’16.
After finishing mid-table in my first two 86 Series campaigns, I made significant improvements during the 2018 season, ending the year third in the standings.
Last year, I also had his first taste of SuperUtes, competing in the Queensland Raceway and Gold Coast rounds.
Good news was that I was confirmed a full-season campaign in SuperUtes, driving a Mitsubishi for Team Triton, and will also compete in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge.
