Driver Wanted

If you’ve ever watched and liked the Bathurst 1000 or circuit racing, have an interest in motorsport, and wondered what it’s like to be in the hot seat yourself – here’s your chance to do so.

Speedy Wheels is an international supplier of automotive wheels and accessories and have been operating in Australia since 1957.

Speedy Wheels is the major sponsor of Mazda RX8 Cup since its inception in 2018. As a result of this, Speedy Wheels has built a Mazda RX8 Race Car and we are looking for somebody to drive in the RX8 Cup Series in 2020 – it could be you!

Here’s how it works…

  1. Enter – register your interest, or fill out an entry form and pay your entry fee.
  2. Drive – drive the Speedy Wheels RX8 at one of our qualifying rounds.
  3. Compete – the top drivers from the initial rounds will advance to the final selection process.
  4. Compete – race against the top drivers at the finale.
  5. Win – 12 months racing in RX8 Cup in the Speedy Wheels car, and the opportunity to co-drive in an endurance race. (Depending on response there will be one winner per state, meaning Speedy could have a number of cars racing in the 2020 cup series).
