The funds were raised by Randle, and his Tickford Racing team, over the weekend of the Sandown Super Sprint (Aug 19-21) round of the Supercars series.

His No.55 Mustang had Peter Mac purple stripes for the event, and Randle easily overtook his initial $10,000 target.

When the checkered flag fell, he had raised $50,669 for a service that Randle is very familiar with.

ONTrac at Peter Mac is a multidisciplinary service which provides care for adolescents and young adults affected by cancer.

Randle, now 26, was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2020 and was successfully treated at Peter Mac.

“After our awesome fundraiser we did for the Sandown SuperSprint with the Castrol Peter Mac livery on the race car, and the fundraiser we had, we’re here to present the cheque for over $50,000,"  Randle said during a recent visit to hand over the giant cheque.

“Which is pretty amazing to be standing here saying that ... and I can’t wait to do it all again next year.”

Receiving the giant cheque was Kate Torney, CEO of the Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation, who described the support from Randle as “extraordinary”.

Tickford Racing also hosted a number of young cancer patients and Peter Mac staff at Sandown, and took them for hotlaps. It was second year the team had done this at the Sandown race meeting.

“The generosity and the real understanding that Thomas has of the value of ONTrac, and the way he is generously giving back, has been just fantastic,” Ms Torney said.

“The whole thing was so exciting for our patients here, and so humbling to see Thomas and his family really rally to give back to Peter Mac. We are so very grateful.”

Among hundreds of donations from race fans there were also signifcant contributions from Betty Klimenko, Castrol, Snowy River Caravans, ACT Fence Hire, Infinium Advisory, Herzog Steel and TPF Sports. The bonnet of Randle’s car was also auctioned, tipping in $3,100.
