Camden-based racer Cameron Crick has confirmed he is set for a new challenge in the Australian motorsport landscape, as the 21-year old yesterday confirmed his involvement in the 2019 Porsche Michelin GT3 Cup Challenge, after reaching an agreement with the team at Garth Walden Racing. This move is strong step forward for the young up-and-comer, and follows his successful 2018 season, where he finished 3rd in the Toyota 86 Racing Series championship as well as recording strong outings in the Ipswich and Gold Coast rounds of the ECB SuperUtes Series.
Crick confirmed the move yesterday on his social media accounts and is excited to be competing in a new category.
“I think after 3 years of competition in the (Toyota) 86 Series we were due for a change. My goal has always been to compete at the highest level and so we needed to up our game as a team and try and prove ourself in another category”, Crick stated, “The Porsche series has a great pace, gives us the chance to prove that we can get results in some pretty quick cars and to hopefully get involved in that Porsche motorsport pyramid and open up opportunities abroad is something we couldn’t pass up. Garth Walden and his race team offered us a very competitive package and it was a no brainer to get on board with their program”.
The Porsche Michelin GT3 Cup Challenge will be competing across 6 rounds in 2019, with the first round taking place as part of the Supercars round in Symmons Plains, Tasmania, and the remaining 5 rounds being held at Shannon’s Nationals events throughout the country.
