Indue Leadership Forum Speaker profile: Craig Lowndes, V8 Supercar Driver

He’s famous for his competitiveness on the race track and razor-sharp driving abilities. Craig Lowndes is one of Australia’s most popular and recognised sporting icons.

A five-time winner of the Bathurst 1000 and three-time V8 Supercar champion, Craig has won more championship races than any other driver at the sport’s highest level.

In 2001, he made the tough and controversial decision to switch from Holden to Ford which caused a stir among his fans. Craig finished second in both the 2012 and 2013 championships and created history when he won his 92nd career championship race, breaking Mark Skaife’s all time record. But that’s just a couple of his career highlights.

The recipient of four Barry Sheene Medals, the sport’s best and fairest award, Craig also received the Medal of the Order of Australia in the 2012 Queen’s Birthday Honours List, for his success in motorsport and contribution to the broader Australian community, particularly through road safety education programs and charitable work with RSPCA and Violence Against Women.

At Indue’s Leadership Forum: Disruption & Transformation, Craig will explain what is takes to become a V8 Supercar champion and how it feels to roll a car six times and live to tell the story.
