Cameron Crick's racing year started off with a bang and it has only continued at full throttle.

The Camden racer had the pedal to the metal at two races during the NTI Townsville 500 last weekend.

Crick was behind the wheel of his Toyota 86 and a SuperUte at the iconic race weekend.

The talented driver said the second round of the TOYOTA GAZOO 86 Series had been 'awesome'.

"I showed good pace throughout the weekend, finishing in the top 5 all weekend, and fifth for the round," he said.

"Friday's practices I finished fourth and third, then I qualified in third on Saturday morning.

"Race one was spent mostly under safety car, and whilst I crossed the line fourth I was demoted to eighth 8th after a post-race penalty.

"Races two and three were full green-flag racing, I made up a few positions in each race finishing fourth and third respectively."

Crick, 23, also announced that he would be joining the RYCO 247 Racing SuperUtes team, alongside Craig Dontas, for the remainder of the 2021 season.

"My next event at Sydney Motorsport Park was postponed, so I'm not sure where we will go next," he said.

Earlier this year Crick took out a win at Mount Panorama followed by a podium finish behind the wheel of a SuperUte.

The Camden driver belted up to drive the amped-up Mitsubishi Triton for the V8 SuperUte Series in South Australia for the OTR SuperSprint.
