TEAM PRINCIPLE AND CREW CHIEF
Rico is the CEO of a Managed Services IT company in Cape Town and he started racing cars in 2005 with a Ray Formula VW which he maintained himself, whilst renting the car from Reg Anderson. He ended 2nd Overall Class A in 2005 and then purchased a 2008 Swift Formula VW from Arnold Lambert, which he campaigned from 2006 till 2008 in Formula Libre. He received multiple wins in this Car and then purchased a Owen Ashley Formula Supercar in which he ended 3rd in Bronze Class in 2008 and winning Bronze Class in 2009. In 2009 close friend, Moose Watt purchased the Hawkins P2 Sports Car and it was Rico's job to maintain and race the car. Further stints in Clubmans racing and the occasional foray into the fledgling Endurance series saw Rico hone his skills on the track, as well as off the track as mechanic. Whilst racing his own cars, or rented ones, Rico has always performed his own mechanical and setup work, ably assisted by close friend, Deon Beier. Rico has turned his attention to building Team RBR and along with Deon Beier, they have expanded their services and mechanical and logistic support to various facets of racing.
