BIO

Rick Kelly has everything you could want from a Supercars driver, natural skill, the desire to win and the finest hair style in pit lane.

A two-time winner of the Bathurst 1000 and a former series champion, Rick is a part time team owner, full-time racer and one of the all-round nice guys in the category.

In 2020 Rick jumps into the Castrol Racing Ford Mustang green machine. Make sure you smile while you look at it, as there’s always a GoPro or two hanging off it.
