2021 Triple Eight Race Engineering
Born in Ireland and later moving to England, RD’s interests have long revolved around anything that he could race. In 1996, he co-founded Triple Eight Race Engineering in the UK – General Motor’s factory British Touring Car Championship racing team.
However, after dominating that series, the lure of the bumper-bashing, tyre-squealing adrenaline in V8 Supercars proved too great for RD.
In late 2003, he took over the former Briggs Motorsport and began the transformation into the Supercars Championship powerhouse with one clear objective: win races and championships. 2016 also saw RD become an Aussie, cementing even further his love for the Australian way of life and his ongoing commitment to Australian motorsport.
Today, Triple Eight has carved a name for itself in the history books, clocking up nine Teams Championships, eight Drivers titles and seven Bathurst 1000 wins.
Take a look at what we’ve been up to recently.
