Cam Waters is without question one of Australia’s brightest young racing drivers. The 26 year old Mildura-born Waters is a graduate of karting, the youngest ever winner of the Australian Formula Ford Championship as well as the youngest ever driver – at just 17 – to contest the prestigious Bathurst 1000 V8 Supercar event.

Heading into the 2021 season Cam is fired up for the season ahead on the back of finishing second in the final event at Bathurst last year, while also claiming a career-best of second place in the championship. He knows the team has the package for him to compete for race wins and the title in 2021.

Away from the track, Waters enjoys keeping fit in the gym, as well wake-boarding and water skiing, while he also spends some time karting and driving speedway cars to keep himself sharp and in top form.
