Andrej Pavicevic (born 26 May 1975 in Sydney, Australia) is best known as a race driver. He started racing in the NSW Street Sedan Championship in 1994 in a Suzuki Swift GTi. From there he moved to the Australian Production Car Championship in 1995 have major success winning 3 class championships in 1995, 1996 and 1997 and he raced a Ford Mondeo in the 1997 Bathurst 1000 race.[1] In 1998 his major sponsor Zepter entered him in the British Formula 3 Championship even though he had next to no open wheel Formula racing experience. As expected he had a tough year in 1998, starting 14 races and scored 19 points finishing 14th [2] for the year and also entered the 1998 Masters of Formula 3 event at Zandvoort. He then graduated to the FIA International Formula 3000 Championship in 1999 where he completed the whole season, qualifying for only 4 events. In 2000 he was picked up by Durango for the Italian Formula 3000 Championship.[3] He had a pole position in the season opener, but failed to score any points. The best finish he had was at the Non Championship race at Assen. After 3 years in Europe he returned to Australia. On his return he started Drag Racing with some success. He was diagnosed with leukaemia,[4] and after a long battle, beat the disease. He now lives in Sydney, preparing and racing Drag Cars from his Croydon Racing Developments workshop.
