Previous Racing History

Leaving school at 14 George went from a brickies labourer to successes that read like chapters from “Boys Own Annual.” Commercial jet helicopter pilot, Australian NASCAR Champion racing driver, multi million dollar hotel operator, best selling novelist (twice – ‘Final Custody’ and ‘Terminal Greed’) and writer/producer and star of the winner of 2004 New York Film Festivals Best Feature Film ‘The Crop’.

George was always comfortable putting himself into what he calls ‘The Danger Zone” Whether he was in danger of losing his house, his dignity or even his life, George has always been prepared to risk every thing, every time, to achieve his ambitions.

George has raced in a variety of race cars over the years, winning the Australian NASCAR Championship in 1991, racing in the V8 Ute series for many years and managing his V8 Race Experience business Fastrack Racing.
