In 1987 this former Wollongong kid became the first Australian to win the 500CC Motorcycle Championship. He later had a series of honours bestowed upon him, including the ABC Sportsman of the Year and Member of the Order of Australia (OAM).

Wayne announced his retirement from motorcycle racing in 1992 with 18 Grand Prix wins under his belt. In 1993, he began his four-wheel racing career. By the end of the first year, he on the podium with a third place in the Bathurst 1000. Wayne went on to start his own V8 team before spending a few years driving in the All-Japan Grand Touring Championship, retiring from professional motor racing in 2003, after a quarter of a century of racing.

He now runs the family business in wholesale motorcycle parts in Wollongong but is based on the northern beaches with his wife Toni and sons Remy, 8, and Luca, 6. Wayne also has a home in Monaco. The 46-year-old realises roughing it on Celebrity Survivor is far removed from his former jet setting lifestyle but as a matter of fact, he's looking forward it.

Wayne's chosen charity is Bear Cottage.
