ABOUT

CAM WATERS

Cam Waters is without question one of Australia's brightest young racing drivers. The 23-year-old Mildura-born Waters is a graduate of karting, the youngest ever winner of the Australian Formula Ford Championship as well as the youngest ever driver - at just 17 - to contest the prestigious Bathurst 1000 V8 Supercar event. 

Waters dominated the 2015 Dunlop V8 Supercar Championship, while also contesting the 2014 and 2015 endurance events with Prodrive Racing Australia (PRA), replacing the injured Chaz Mostert for a handful of late-season events. 

In 2016 Waters made his full-time debut at Virgin Australia Supercar Championship level, driving the Monster Energy backed PRA run Ford Falcon FG X, recording one pole position (at Barbagallo Raceway in WA) and four 4th place finishes.

2017 sees Waters contesting his second year with the PRA/Monster outfit.

Away from the track, Waters enjoys keeping fit in the gym, as well wake-boarding and water skiing, while he also spends some time karting and driving speedway cars to keep himself sharp and in top form.
