The first of the modern CowperTruck made its debut in 2012, although to a rough start! Dan Cowper would place it 7th on debut but was unable to gain a placing for 2013. 2014 would see Cowper only do another two events prior to selling the truck to Zane Edlin and joining alongside in the co-drivers seat. Fortunes would change come the end of the season, with Edlin taking a maiden win at the National Final!
Russell Luders would then purchase the CowperTruck in 2016 with Chris Tomalin jumping in alongside. Luders was a past B Class champ and runner up in F Class back at the turn of the millennium. Showing no signs of age, the duo would punch ‘The General’ well into the Top 10, placing three years in a row and claiming 4th Overall in 2017. After a season off Luders returns with a new Powerglide gearbox and Neil Moratti joining in the co-drivers seat!
Neil Moratti is a previous D-Class competitor, placing in the Top 10 himself as a driver in the 2010’s.
