First started racing at the age of 19 in a black Mini. After learning the craft in three different Minis the last being a super-charged fuel-injected 225 hp beast, Nick had to learn the art of rear-wheel drive. A super-charged XU-1 Torana, followed by a Commodore were replaced with a Chev V8 Camaro in the era US chassis and race technology took hold of the sport.

Nick's industrial mechanical engineering background with trained experience in hydraulics, machining, welding and mechanical fitting helped him grasp the technology quickly. He flew to the States in 1989 and brought back a chassis he built and adapted for right-hand drive using a jig at a top U.S. chassis factory. He has since built many successful cars in Australia.
