CARL Cox might the three deck wizard when it comes to DJing, but how do his sim racing skills stack up?
Cox, one of the world's highest profile DJs, will find out on Monday evening when he tackles a virtual Mount Panorama race as part the Supercars celebrity grid.
He will steer a Tickford Racing Ford Mustang and be hoping for the same smooth rhythm he's found from spinning vinyl discs.
"I am absolutely delighted to be joining the Supercars celebrity Eseries next week," Cox, who will also have support from Tickford Racing in his preparations, said.
"Like most people I've spent a lot of time at home in recent weeks. I've been playing a lot of my music at home, but it will certainly be great to do something different and get to race with so many other big names in sport and entertainment."
Cox, a British DJ now based in Melbourne, first came in touch with the Tickford family in 2017 when its vehicle enhancement business upgraded his white Ford Mustang into a Bathurst 77 Special, featuring a 727hp supercharged engine.
Cox then added additional enhancements to his daily driver - a Ford Mustang GT - before then adding a third Tickford Mustang to his collection earlier this month when he picked up a newly-built Trans-Am Mustang.
In 2019 his own motor sport division, Carl Cox Motorsport, became a partner of Tickford Racing aboard Cameron Waters' Monster Energy Ford Mustang.
Carl Cox Motorsport is predominantly involved in motorcycle and side car racing, and Cox himself has experience in drag racing.
However, the music icon expects a much different challenge, when he takes the wheel of a Supercar on iRacing simulation program.
"Much like music, racing and cars are in my blood, so while this will be a very different kind of racing than I am used to, I am so excited to get going," he said.
"I've loved driving my Tickford Mustangs I have at home, and I don't think they'd let me drive one of their real Mustang Supercars so this might be as close as I can get to the real thing and I cannot wait."
Tickford Racing boss Tim Edwards echoed Cox's excitement in joining the celebrity race, which will feature a field including sporting stars, off-road racers, and Supercars team executives battling it out on Australia's premier racing circuit.
"Carl has been involved with the company for a few years now and is always a pleasure to have around, so when the celebrity Eseries concept came about he was the first person to spring to mind for us," Edwards said.
"He's very much a racer so we're thrilled to help him have a crack in a virtual Supercar. Monday should be pretty entertaining and we're looking forward to seeing the Carl Cox Motorsport Mustang out on track!"
The Supercars celebrity race at Mount Panorama will be broadcast live at 7pm AEST on Monday on Supercars' Facebook, Twitch and YouTube pages.
