European Le Mans series race winner and current S5000 driver, Australian-born Ricky started go karting at age seven. With ten years karting under his belt, he worked his way up through the formulae, including Australian F3 and GT (BMW M6 GT), with the main goal of generating income to enable him to live his dream of making a career in motorsport. One of his main idols, whom he strives to emulate, is fellow-Australian Daniel Ricciardo.
