It is second time luck for former Miss Universe Australia, Rachel Finch, who was a late withdrawal from the 2013 Celebrity Challenge. This year will be different and as a confident Finch expressed “I am super excited to be involved in the race this year, it makes it even more special that my husband and daughter will be cheering me on from the grandstand. I’ve heard so much about the Celebrity Challenge from previous contestants and I can’t wait for this new experience”.

One of her challengers will be recently retired Socceroo and Premier League veteran, Brett Emerton who after almost a decade playing in the English Premier League is sure to bring that competitive spirit to the track. This is not an opportunity he plans to waste and as he says “I’ve had so many incredible experiences through football including being able to represent my country in the World Cup twice. The Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge is another one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences and I can’t wait to get out on the track and hopefully finish on the podium.”
