Committee Member

Name: Ryan Curnick

Car: 1969 Porsche 911E

Racing Number: 50

Favourite Track: Phillip Island

Ryan is a self-confessed early Porsche 'tragic'. The purchase of a 1970 911 started him on the road to over twenty years of driving, rallying, racing, restoring and collecting air cooled 911's. Ryan began competing in Porsche NSW club sprints before getting hooked by tarmac rallying, earning Gold plates in both Targa Tasmania and Classic Adelaide along with class and category wins. He then turned to circuit racing with the purchase of a Group Sb log booked 1969 911E. That 2.0 litre car has recently been returned to its original delivery colour of Bahama Yellow, making it easy to spot at Ryan's local tracks SMSP and Wakefield Park, and interstate excursions to Phillip Island and Winton.

Racing Number: 99

Favourite Track: Phillip Island

Many of Dom's fondest childhood memories are of days spent with her Dad, Paul, also a keen Group S Racer, at various vintage and classic car events. Those days were the seed of her car racing aspirations. With his encouragement and that of a group of seasoned mentors, Dom began to reinvent herself from a TV & Marketing Creative into an obsessed historic motorsport racer. From 2012 onwards, Dom quickly proved herself a keen & capable competitor amongst the field, ultimately gaining her National Circuit License in 2014. With the support of CAMS & Group S, Dom became the first racer to run charity decals on a historic race car - pledging her commitment as a lifetime Multiple Sclerosis Research Australia Ambassador - raising funds, awareness & tires along the way. Her greatest achievement was winning First Class (Sb - Under 2L) at the notoriously difficult Phillip Island Classic in 2016. Off-track, Dom is an Automotive Professional, and enjoys chasing treacherous terrain in her 2010 Land Rover Defender 90

Technical Advisory

Name: Brian Weston

Car: 1971 MG Midget

Racing Number: 75

Favourite Track: Bathurst

Brian Weston bought the BRG MG Midget Mk III in 1999. Since then, he and the car have been regular GSRA racers having now competed in over 130 race meetings. Along the way, Brian was the founding President of the GSRA, serving as President for five years (2006-2010). He still pulls the odd duty in an ex-officio capacity. Currently he is an ex-officio eligibility adviser to the GSRA Committee and Chair of the GSRA Pointscore Sub-committee. While the Midget is not as quick as its pilot’s previous mounts, such as the Hawker Hunter, Avon Sabre, Dassault Mirage III and F/A-18 Hornet fighters, the 1275 cc powered Midget is an entertaining, competitive and a fun little car

South Australian Registrar

Name: Troy Ryan

Car: 1963 Austin Healey Sprite

Racing Number: 95

Favourite Track:

I’ve always had a chronic severe old car collecting disorder. This led to the realization in 2005 that the best way to not deal with it was to race them. Since then I’ve been building and breaking a MkIIa Sprite, a car chosen because I had it and I was impressed by what the Midget one B Weston’s did to Shelby GT350s at Winton. About half way through the build I lifted my welding mask and realized there is no group S field in South Australia. Hence another project – rebuild Group S in SA, one car at a time if need be. Anyway it’s great to grow up and find something so pointless can be so much fun. See you on the track
