Rick Kelly has tasted success at the highest level in Supercars – as both a driver and team owner.

The now-Nissan driver won the 2006 V8 Supercars Championship, as well as the Bathurst 1000 two years in a row.

Running his own team under the Nissan Motorsport banner with older brother Todd, Kelly is hoping to not only take his team to the top, but bring his own racing fortunes back to the forefront.

After beginning in karts and following in the wheel tracks of Todd in Formula Ford, Rick clinched the Australian Drivers Championship in 2001 and made his V8 Supercar debut in the same year for Kmart Racing.

Stepping into the Holden Young Lions program, Kelly was Rookie of the Year in 2002 andtook over Todd’ s seat at Kmart Racing for the following season, culminating his first of two back-to-back Bathurst 1000 wins.

In 2006 he was in true championship form and his consistency was unbeatable. Despite only winning one individual race all season, Kelly took the title in controversial circumstances after a last race clash with Craig Lowndes at Phillip Island.

Kelly continued under the Walkinshaw Racing umbrella in 2007 and 2008 before Kelly Racing was formed. He took a number of wins for his own team before embarking on the Nissan project.

In 2015, Kelly earned four podium finishes, including a strategic fuel race at the Gold Coast 600 and third in the final race of the season.

2016 was a tougher year, though strong performances at Winton and Hidden Valley in Darwin added to his tally of top five finishes.

GEORGE COMMINS - ENGINEER


After several years racing overseas, George Commins engineers Kelly for the third consecutive year, settling back home in Australia. Having worked at Dick Johnson Racing for three years, pri- marily as Steve Johnson’ s engineer, Commins spent six years in the UK.

His CV reveals names like Double R (Formula 3), Arden Motorsport (Formula Renault 3.5) and Williams Grand Prix (Formula 1). This invaluable experience is of real benefit to the whole team.
