Meet the man healing Kyly Clarke's broken heart, V8 Supercars champion James ...

Kyly Clarke has reportedly moved on from retired cricket captain Michael Clarke, eight months after their separation made headlines.

And it appears the former model, 39, has hit the jackpot with her rumoured new boyfriend, V8 Supercars champion James Courtney.

The race car driver and father of two, also 39, has known Kyly since she was just 11 years old, with The Daily Telegraph reporting the two briefly dated two decades ago.

James is, like Kyly, no stranger to the spotlight. His own marriage split played out in front of the nation in 2017, just like the Clarkes' did earlier this year.

Courtney and his ex-wife of 16 years, Carys, were teenage sweethearts, but everything fell apart during the worst season of his driving career three years ago.

Their break-up was splashed across the tabloids when Carys was pictured getting cosy with former Bachelorette star Stu Laundy in 2018.
