Rookies latest to join Supercars endurance season

Two more seats have been snapped up ahead of the Repco Supercars Championship endurance races in the form of two rookies receiving an opportunity.

Cameron McLeod and Cameron Crick will join the Repco Supercars Championship at the Sandown and Bathurst endurance races.

McLeod has only joined the Super2 ranks this season, but has been given the nod to partner Tim Slade at Nulon PremiAIr Racing.

Last year, the third generation racer was a consistent pacesetter in Super3 and won the Mike Kable Young Gun Award for his efforts, while he made the step up to the second-tier with the aid of PremiAir Racing as those links continued to grow since the start of the year.

“I am very keen for this opportunity,” said McLeod.

“This is the year that we were hoping we would be able to secure a co-driver and we have put a lot of effort into getting to this point and o where we are now.

“I am very grateful to Peter Xiberras and all of the PremiAir Nulon Racing boys and girls that have put their support and faith behind me with this co-drive position.”

McLeod impressed during PremiAir Racing’s mid-season test at Queensland Raceway leading to the opportunity being provided to him according to Team Manager Stephen Robinson.

“PremiAir Nulon Racing has a strong relationship already with the McLeod family through our support of Cameron’s Super2 campaign and we are very pleased to be expanding that relationship now by having Cam join us as co-driver for Tim Slade in the 2024 endurance races,” he said.

“Obviously, he is an up-an-coming star and we have been impressed with his Super2 performances this year and how he performed during our recent Queensland Raceway test day.

“With he and Tim having a previously standing working relationship also, we are very confident this will be a strong partnership and we can’t wait to see what they can achieve together at Sandown and Bathurst later this year.”

As for Crick, he will join Matt Stone Racing for the enduros alongside good friend Cameron Hill.

Although initially believed to be planning a Wildcard effort with the squad, Crick will make his debut appearance in the Sandown and Bathurst events after multiple years in Super2.]“It’s fantastic to have the enduro season locked away; I think we have a solid driving line-up in both cars for Sandown and Bathurst this year,” said Team Owner Matt Stone.

“Cam Crick has fitted into the team really well this year and will be a good pairing in Car #4 alongside Cam Hill.

“Looking forward to having a red-hot crack at the enduro races this season.”

Crick is vastly experienced in Super2 and this year has also contested the V8 SuperUtes, but is excited to add a start in the Bathurst 1000 to his CV emulating his father, truck racing legend Rodney. 

“For me, this is a dream come true moment and it has taken a lot of hard work over the last few years to get here,” said Crick.

“Obviously to do it with a very close mate in Cam Hill is something special, but also to build on the relationship with Matt Stone Racing as well is huge.

“The team has been super welcoming and accommodating this year and it just feels like the place to be at the moment.

“I’d like to thank my core partnership group who have been a part of this journey, and to see them on the car at Sandown and Bathurst is also very exciting.

“We’ve got more testing coming up in the next few weeks, which will be great to get more seat time and prepare for the enduro campaign.”

Hill has continued to display improvement this season and is stoked to have Crick partner him in the two marquee Supercars races.

“I am really looking forward to having Cam join me for the enduros this year,” Hill said.

“We have been good mates for many years now and talk almost daily. We have come through the junior categories together, and to finally be able to team up together is going to be a lot of fun.

“Cam works harder than anyone I know on his racing. He has loads of talent and is underrated in my opinion.

“There are a few things for him to pick up being his first run in the main game but I know with the guidance of Paul Forgie our engineer and with Cam’s maturity he will be dialled in when we get racing.”
