MAD COW. Longtime CowperTruck of Rowan Huckstep from Mt Egmont. This particular vehicle has been a Top 10 regular ever since it was built 10 years ago! Multiple wins and strong performances along the way have been courtesy of the teamwork between Rowan & Hendrik.

At Round 5 of the 2022 season saw co driver Hendrik Hofstee having to pull out at lunchtime. Rowan was in search of a navigator and Duncan Bradley promptly jumped in! Later going on to purchase the CowperTruck for the following season.

Bradley would complete one full season in Mad Cow before upgrading again in 2024.

Sam Carlsen is one of the sports rookie drivers for 2023. Making his debut in the ex-Reaper CowperTruck of Wayne Weatherly at Round 1, before upgrading half way through the season!
