He was a complete racing rookie at the start of the 2017 V8 Utes Series, but under the tutelage of Ross Stone, Christopher Formosa steadily improved.
The Sydney driver dedicated himself to the task of racing a Ute, undertaking driver training away from the track as he aimed to develop and improve.
That hard work paid off - he scored a personal-best result of 11th overall at Townsville, and again finished just outside the top 10 on the Gold Coast.
Formosa will be hoping the introduction of the new SuperUtes levels the playing field in 2018, allowing him to keep moving up the grid in his Ford Ranger.
