With a toothy grin and moustache combination you couldnâ€™t jump over, Charlie Kovacs is indeed a colourful character. The proud South Aussie has been racing a myriad of different Motorsport missiles over more time than he cares to remember including of course his most famous weapon of choice to date â€“ the RED Express Deliveries V8 ute. Kovacs â€“ known as â€œHandlebarsâ€ because of his enormous and stylish moustache which makes Aussie fast bowling legend Merv Hughes look positively pre-pubescent â€“ is nothing if not an eccentric race track identity. His casual demeanor of track often belies his on-track manner â€“ one of all business. Charlieâ€™s not scared to rub a panel or two if â€˜one of the kidsâ€™ in the ute paddock wants to play it that way, but heâ€™s better known for his hilarious Biggles helmet, cigar smoking and red wine sipping than he is as a rough and ready bump and run type. In a field chock full of larger than life personalities â€œHandlebarsâ€ still manages to stand out from a flock of standouts â€“ and command more than his share of TV exposure.
