Matt Campbell went through the classic racing driver education: He drove in several Formula series in his home country Australia before he made the switch to cars with roofs in 2014.
He promptly won the B class in the Porsche Carrera Cup Australia, and in 2016 the 1.84-meter man clinched the title and was officially promoted to the busy "Porsche Young Professional" the following year: He finished the Supercup in third place with four race wins.
In 2018, Campbell made the leap to the WEC. Here, the Australian secured a total of 3 victories in the GTEAm class. The highlight for him, however, was probably his triumph in the GTEAm class at the legendary 24-hour race at Le Mans. One of the biggest successes of his career so far came at the beginning of 2019, when he won the 12h Bathurst together with Dirk Werner and Dennis Olsen. In 2020, he also won the Petit Le Mans race in the GTLM class.
Despite his young age, Campbell has already been part of Frikadelli Racing for a couple of years. In addition to his starts at the famous 24h in the Green Hell in 2018 and 2019, he also completed a guest start in the ADAC GT Masters for the team from Barweiler. After a one-year break, he now returns to the Nürburgring Nordschleife together with the team.
