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.

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

It won’t be hard to miss Rick’s car in 2019. Just look for the bright green Castrol Nissan, and make sure you smile while you look at it, as there’s always a GoPro or two hanging off it.
