Tommy Marco – #6
Tommy is the second youngest driver at the SDAV Hot Rods at the age of 24 and is the middle son of Stan Marco Snr (#5 – current VIC #1) and brother to racers Raedyn (#2) and Stanley Jnr (#11). He is a concreter by trade and works with his brothers for the family business.
The 4 boys makeup Marco Racing whose bright colours make them unmistakeable on the track and they bring an extensive cheer squad!
Every meet you can hear them cheering them on from the pits and the stands.
He has been around speedway most of his life thanks to it being a family sport with his father and grandfather both racing which has influenced his choice of driving with the hot rods.
Tommy has been racing for two and a half years, starting his career at the tender age of 22. He’s already had a rollover and many car issues but he is always out there giving it his best.
Chantelle, Tommy’s better half, heads up his pit crew and helps keep his car looking its best so it really stands out on the track.
His favourite sport like most of SDAV Hot Rods drivers is football. A proud Hawthorn supporter to be exact. In fact, he has been spotted in his Hawthorn onesie and Hawthorn fluffy footy socks relaxing after a race! And of course going off to bed with his trusty bottle of water.
His biggest rival on track is his brother, Stanley Jnr and his most respected competitor is his dad, Stan Snr.
One of his favourite meals is a good plate of ribs with an ice cold VB.. Topped off with Sticky Date Pudding for dessert.
His list of sponsors include Indy Race Parts, Darby Paints, A1 Automotive, Fabricare Engineering, Kardinia Café, and Fourth Designs.
You’ll find Tommy near his unmissable bright pink car – stop by and say hey!
