Fresh off of his impressive start to the racing year at Mount Panorama, Camden's Cameron Crick is set to get back behind the wheel this weekend.

But this time he'll be driving an amped up Mitsubishi Triton for the V8 SuperUte Series.

Crick will head down to South Australia for the OTR SuperSprint.

"I'm excited to return to the seat of the #7 Team Triton entry," he said.

"Now powered by a LS3 V8 engine and sitting over two inches lower with a new shook, rim and tyre package. This has been awesome to drive at test days and I'm sure the racing won't disappoint.

"Running across two categories requires a massive commitment from my sponsors and it's great to have everyone on board to make this happen."

Earlier this year Crick, 23, dominated the Mount Panorama track for the Toyota Gazoo 86 Series.

"I qualified on pole position and won all three races - something that hasn't been done in the series since 2016," he said.

"Round 1 of the 2021 Toyota Gazoo 86 Series was definitely a success."

After a rough start due to unforseen weather, the talented racer hit the ground running.

"Early in the weekend we missed out on heaps of track time," he said.

"Practice 1 was cancelled due to low lying fog, and Qualifying turned into a single lap shootout after a red-flag early in the session.

"Saturday afternoon I led Race 1 from start to finish.

"I had a great battle with James Holdsworth on Sunday, swapping the lead a few times throughout the second race. I ended the weekend with a Sieders Racing 1st and 2nd in Race 3, crossing the line just in front of my teammate Aaron Borg."
