Episode 9 – Guy Andrews | January 12, 2024

In this podcast episode, we continue our exploration of athletes who have transitioned into motorsport careers with one of Australia's most successful surf lifesavers, Guy Andrews. During the 1990s, surf lifesaving experienced a tremendous boom with the establishment of the Uncle Tobys Super Series, a professional competition that gained widespread popularity. Despite facing resistance from the governing body, a group of ironman competitors, including Guy Andrews, broke away to create the Super Series. The rebellion paid off as the series became a huge success, with live coverage on Network Ten and household names emerging from the sport.

For Guy Andrews, the exposure and success in the Super Series paved the way for his entry into motorsport, fulfilling his longtime passion. Inspired by watching legends at tracks like Lakeside and Surfers Paradise, Andrews ventured into racing with the guidance of two-time Bathurst 1000 winner Tony Longhurst. From participating in the Bathurst 3 Hour race to racing V8 Utes and MINI Challenge, Andrews has had an exciting career in motorsport. Moreover, he has also pursued stunt driving, working on notable productions like Mad Max Fury Road. Andrews continues to balance his involvement in surf lifesaving, coaching, and competing in the masters category, while also enjoying track days and time attack events with his Hyundai i30N.

Watch Guy compete at the 1999 Bathurst 3 Hour Showroom Showdown with Tony Longhurst.
