Briggs Doing It for Dad

Just six months after the passing of his father Rick, who was his biggest supporter, Jake Briggs has achieved a major career milestone last Saturday night at Solo Hobart Speedway, winning his maiden AMCA Nationals feature race.

It was an emotion-charged victory for the 23-year-old racer, whose fifth season with the class is also his first without his dad by his side, after Rick lost his battle with brain cancer in April, three and a half years after being diagnosed with the disease.

In an AMCA Nationals class that’s dominated by the Panther brand of race car, Daniel Brooks has certainly held his own throughout the 2016-17 season, showing great speed aboard his custom-built Evolution car.

After making the decision to build his own custom race car with good friend and crew chief David Harrison, a project that was 12 months in the making, the Bothwell, Tasmania-based driver managed to debut his new car at the beginning of this season.
