A dedicated father of five, he spends his leisure time with his family following their shared passion for motor sports, four-wheel driving, camping in the Victorian high country, and riding dirt-bikes.Ricky Muir became Senator Ricky Muir on the 1 July, 2014 and was due to hold his position as a Senator representing the Australian Motoring Enthusiast Party for six years.
With a blue collar background, Ricky’s learning curve in parliament was steep. Despite this, as his knowledge of the internal running of the Senate become greater, Ricky has been able to earn the respect of many observers amongst the community.
A double dissolution election was called on 8 May 2016 and the future of both Ricky’s and the Australian Motoring Enthusiast Parties time in parliament will be subject to the results of the July 2 2016 double dissolution election.
