Cameron Waters will make his sprint car debut on home soil this Saturday night, the first of a number of such drives over summer for the Tickford Racing pilot.
His maiden start will come at Timmis Speedway in Mildura, where the 26-year-old was born, with around 10 events on the cards this year.
The 2020 Bathurst 1000 pole-sitter will drive for Colin McQuinn’s Chief Racing team in a Maxim chassis recently acquired from the McFadden family.
Waters was able to conduct a three-session shakedown run at Timmis Speedway last Sunday evening, and has had success in a sedan before.
However, he is conscious of the challenge that competing in the 800-horsepower sprint car represents.
“I’m not underestimating the task ahead one bit and my first run in the car last Sunday was a real eye-opener, despite having had some previous Speedway experience,” said Waters.
