The July 1988 edition of Thunderdome mentions Darryl racing against the clock to make his debut in the June 26th, the story mentions that he was a young mechanic who acquired a body shell from Reg Hunt in February 1988 with Dave Weatherhead putting the engine together.

Darryl raced very competitively in AUSCAR and can proudly state that he is an AUSCAR race winner.

Darryl finished 26th in points in 1988, 8th in 1988/89, 20th in 1990/91, 21st in 1991/92, 28th in 1992/93 and 22nd in 1993/94.

His race cars still exist in 2017 as his #31 was seen at Wakefield Park for many years where people could pay to drive or be driven in it before it was spotted among a bunch of AUSCAR’s at Winton.
