Cameron was born 28 September 1977 in Melbourne Australia. His first bike was a Suzuki RM50 handed down to him at the age of six from his older brother Brad. Cameron was riding regularly for years but didn't start racing seriously until the age of 15 when he started racing short circuit dirt track events. After winning numerous races and state titles dirt racing the natural progression was for Cameron to follow in the footsteps of his brothers and father into road racing.
With his unique style of dirt track sliding skill and GP bike precision, Cameron was a formidable opponent. Riding in the national 125,250 and Australian Supersport Championship he had an ever growing list of race wins and Championships to his name.
In the years that followed Cameron competed in numerous championships including the Asian Road Racing Championship, and also won the Macau Supersport GP twice. 2005 saw the start of his Isle Of Man challenge, finishing fastest newcomer in his first event. 2008 was his most successful to date finishing on the top step in the Superbike and Superstock races. He was on course to win the blue riband event, the Senior TT but his bike suffered an oil leak while leading. Despite this he held on to 2nd place to finish of a great weekend for himself and his team.
