R-Spec Industries

I was introduced to motorsport at a very early age and a very unhealthy obsession was to unfold. I commenced my motorsport career in a support role in 1995 as part of an up and coming rally team on the national rally series in NZ. I undertook the position of chief mechanic in the 1996 and 1997 seasons and I played my part in the team, on their road to a series championship. In the coming years, I remained heavily involved in motorsport and assisted numerous teams in lead mechanical roles in different forms of motorsport. Some of these include; 1600cc NZ Touring Car Series, NZ V8 Touring Car Series, Targa Rally NZ (Ford Escort MK1), NZ Superbike Series (Ducati 748SP). In 1998 I decided to build and race my first race car. It was Class 7 1200cc VW Off-Road Racer and I ended up; 3rd in class and 7th overall in the NZ National Championship. I competed until 1999, when I made the move to Australia with my family.
After moving to Australia, I stayed reasonably low-key in motorsport until 2001. While working full-time as a diesel mechanic, I won a drive package at a newly formed rally school on the Gold Coast. I got the bug for racing again and I realised that I couldn’t live without . As a result, I heavily pursued a career change into motorsport and soon after, secured a position as a rally driving instructor at a local rally school. In 2005, I was promoted to team manager and I currently working as a service manager for Isuzu D-Max Ute dealership. I see myself as a hardworking, passionate and motivated person that would great representative to any organisation.
