Big trucks, little race cars & a giant of a driver

Gold Coast born and bred, Damian Ward
 is a driver. For his day job he drives the biggest vehicles in the country – a mining truck – as a 
Coal Operator. For sport, after having spent his youth driving go-karts, he has progressed to driving the smallest race car in the country, an Aussie Race Car!
With 1200cc’s of raw power from a Yamaha motorcycle, these miniature lightweight racing cars are “speed on wheels”. Twitchy, touchy and extra responsive, the Aussie Race Car is the total opposite of a mining truck.
But that’s what makes Damian such an exceptional talent – he has the ability to adapt to any road or track he’s on.
Keep an eye out for him as powers around the streets of Surfers Paradise during the GC600 weekend, in the distinctive black and yellow livery of the Finance Ezi Racing team’s Aussie Race Car.
Damian developed his karting career between 2004 and 2011
 with multiple State and national podiums – the highlight being the 
2010 Australian DD2 Karting Champion.
An impressive list of International titles include:
2010 29th World Rotax Finals DD2 at La Conca, Italy

2011 4th place World Rotax Finals, Dubai

2012 Suzuki Swift racing series with numerous podiums and wins.

2013 Bathurst 12 hour Winner E Class

2013 competing in Aussie Racing Cars
