Crick gears up for race season

Cameron Crick will take to the track for his first race this weekend.

The Camden racer will tackle the Phillip Island SuperSprint at the Phillip Island Racing Circuit in Victoria on April 21, 22 and 23.

The Camden racer finished 14th in the Toyota 86 Racing Series out of 46 competitors last year.

Crick said he was heading into the five-round series hoping to better last year’s results.

“It’s such a competitive series and you really need to be on the pace from the outset, so we’ll be focusing on improving our consistency and qualifying speed throughout each of the five rounds,” he said.

Crick has teamed up with the Sieders Racing team for this year’s racing campaign.

At a recent test session at Sydney Motorsport Park, Crick said he and his team took plenty of positivity from the performance of the car and are eager to see what he can do in the opening round.

“I couldn’t be happier to have teamed up with Sieders racing for the 2017 Toyota 86 Racing Series,” he said.

“Having them in my corner definitely gives me the confidence I need in order to push for better results this year, and the experience they have will no doubt be a key factor in achieving that.”

In addition to signing with major sponsor Clintons Toyota earlier this year, Crick has also had three other sponsors come on board to support this year’s Toyota 86 Racing Series campaign.

“I’m very grateful to have welcomed a number of new sponsors this year,” he said.

“All of the support we receive plays an integral part in the team’s success, and it’s great to have such fantastic sponsors bolstering our efforts in this year’s Toyota 86 Racing Series.”
