RacerViews FastFours with Cameron Shields


Today we catch up with up-and-coming Australian racer, Cameron Shields. The Toowoomba local is trying to make his way in the USA after success in the Australian open wheel scene. With some mentorship from Indycar champion, Will Power, he has achieved good results in a few partial seasons of the USF2000 Championship and will step up to the DEForce Racing in IndyPro2000.

The long answers

1. Well he is not my rival (yet) but the driver I respect the most would be Will Power. He has achieved some incredible results in IndyCar and will go down in history as on of the most successful drivers. But it is the fact that he has come from a very similar position to me, which creates a high level of respect.
2. My favorite car would still be the 2011 FIA F3 – I learnt more driving and working with this car than anything prior or after. So many mechanical and aerodynamic components are open to change and or tune, which teaches you a lot about engineering and how to develop a car.
3. I certainly like to be chased; for two reasons. Firstly, nothing can create a higher adrenaline rush than being chased – it certainly is more challenging. Secondly, if I’m chasing some one it just means I’m not winning!
4. I would rather race, the element of racing really caters to someone with the ability to have precise, fast decisions, and a cunningness that is not required for one lap.
