Another Kart racer has crossed the gap from karting to circuit racing. 18 year old Queenslander Ben Cox started racing karts when just 10 years old and has now progressed to the Aussie Racing Cars Championship. “When I decided to step up to the Aussie Cars I knew I needed a good car if I was to make a real go of it, so we purchased the Mustang of Maurice Masini late last year, it’s a quick car”, said Wilcox.
Ben has tested the car at both Queensland Raceway and Lakeside Park, “we’ve had great improvements with each test day”, he said. The youngsters main sponsor is Wilcox Engineering and Conveyors based in Carole Park Brisbane.
“At Clipsal I would like to be up the top end of the big rookie contingent. Being my first Aussie Racing Car event, one of the biggest goals is just to finish all races and to not damage the car!” said Ben.
