From the Ground Up – Jamie Whincup



The stats don’t lie – Jamie Whincup can be considered Australia’s most successful Supercars driver.

With seven Supercars titles, four Bathurst wins and 124 race victories to his name, Jamie has raced his final lap as lead driver. He is now Managing Director at Triple Eight Race Engineering Australia.

“This is a massive people business – you’re only as strong as the weakest link. It’s about empowering everyone to get the most out of them on race day,” Jamie said.

Watch Jamie chat with NAB Executive for Business and Private Banking, Andrew Irvine to find out how he pivoted from lead driver to team owner and his thoughts on team, talent, and diversity.


This conversation is part of NAB’s business series – From the Ground Up – where we chat with Australia’s entrepreneurs, hearing about the trials and tribulations of their journey and their secrets for success.
