Having joined the team in 2007, Cauchi did his time as Data Engineer before the boss finally noticed that he only ever left the workshop for race weekends and to go stock up on protein powder and spirulina – whatever that is. RD took pity on him and deemed him to be deserving of a promotion and so far it doesn’t look like that was a bad idea.
Cauchi has joined the ranks of engineering’s elite, winning the 2014 V8 Supercars championship as JDub’s right-hand man. The two of them can often be found hiding in a corner of RBHRT HQ’s boardroom, armed with sheets of data and a slab of Red Bull. It usually takes some coaxing out with the scent of Local Legends beef jerky to finally shift them when it’s time to set the alarms, but hey, if that’s what it takes to win a championship, we’re not gunna get in their way.
