CAMS Offroad Racing Class – Extreme 4WD

Clayton began racing with his parents when he was 14 driving the teams turbo charged Pajeor in short course events and navigating for his mother Leila in long course events.
Adam begain navigating for Clayton when he was 16. Clayton and Adam are friends since primary school, growing up together in Federal riding bikes and driving cars. Adam is a major part of the teams sucsess, as the two have grown to work as one in the car trusting each other in very high risk situations, helping to getting the car to the finish line in one piece and as fast as possible.
Clayton and Adam earned 2009 and 2010 National Production 4WD Champions in the teams Production Triton, which is a huge credit to not only the boys but the team as well.
2013 was the debut season for the teams current Extreme 4WD Triton, both the 2013 and 2014 AORC seasons have been very testing for the team with many bugs to iron out of the new race car. Glimmers of hope would show every now and then, some of thememorable times include a 5th outright prologue at 2014 Finke and a 4th outright prologue at Lockyer Valley and taking out the National Extreme 4WD Class Driver and Navigator. Keen to take on the 2015 season with the 801 on the roof and a new confidence and knowledge of this amazing vehicle the boys are ready to give it thier best shot.
