GoPro, maker of the world’s most versatile camera that captures today’s most engaging user-generated content, is proud to announce the addition of V8 Supercar driver Rick Kelly to the team.

Teamed with older brother Todd for the fifth straight season, the 2006 V8 Supercar Champion represents Jack Daniel’s Racing and factory Nissan. The 2002 Rookie of the Year is excited about his first year with Nissan and the future the partnership offers.

 

The Mildura, Victoria, native cut his teeth racing karts, and eventually graduated to the Australian Drivers Championship, where he clinched a title in 2001. He made his V8 Supercars debut that same year, and the rest, as they say, is history. For the majority of his career, Kelly has been behind the wheel of a Holden, but 2013 has marked a new chapter for the veteran. For the first time in his career, Kelly is driving a factory Nissan in his 12th campaign for a V8 Supercar championship. In addition to piloting an Altima on the V8 Supercar circuits, Kelly has also been chosen to be a part of the Nismo Athlete Global Team. This new opportunity will bring Kelly to the Bathurst 12-Hour race in 2014 as a lead driver. With plenty of wheel time to document, as well as down time on dirt bikes and wakeboards, Kelly will have his GoPro HERO3 capturing all of the amazing content in the racer’s life.

 

Welcome to the team, Rick!
