THE KARATE KID
Don’t be fooled by Dayna’s demeanour. This powerhouse has a black belt in Karate and finished 3rd in the GKR Karate International World Cup at Milton Keynes, England in 2019 - she’s still in training and her favourite TV time is watching UFC.
She’s always enjoyed all sports but has loved motorsport for as long as she can remember, watching it on TV with Dad or going to the drags and the speedway as a family. Despite this connection to the sport, she never imagined working at the front end of the motorsport industry.
During her under-grad and graduate years, Dayna worked in financial services for chartered accounting firms. This provided invaluable accounting experience, so she went to work looking after finances in the family hydraulics business for over 10 years, working alongside the TA2 Technical Manager Cam Sendall until the business was sold
Her current role with PBR and TA2 is to manage the accounts, finances and administration for both entities, coordinate the sale of cars, order car builds with the Howe Racing Enterprises factory, and assist with driving the parts truck to/ from each round and supplying parts at the track
Dayna passed her truck licence with ease and loves to haul the TA2 Spares truck on long interstate runs, often sleeping overnight in the cab to get an early start the next morning. Her husband Paul and children Adam, Charlie and Kieran are also regulars at the racetrack, working as a complete family unit to service the needs of the TA2 competitor. So our advice is don’t get too far behind on your accounts .....otherwise we will send Dayna around!
