F1 Fanatic - Australian V8 Supercars
Interesting to see how he gets on.
Great, great, great news!
Wow that’s definitely one to keep an eye on this year. Can’t wait to see how he does.
Bear in mind that he is only racing in the Dunlop Series, the second-tier V8 Supercar category.
@prisoner-monkeys Intriguingly, if I remember my V8 rules correctly, being in the Dunlop series does give him a chance to be 2nd driver at the endurance events – including Bathurst. Is that correct?
@journeyer – Yes and no. Yes in the sense that he can race at Bathurst; no because practically anyone can provided that they hold the relevant racing licence. For instance, Greg Ritter, one of the regular drivers for th endurance events, does not actually do any racing other than Sandown and Bathurst. He’s actually a plasterer by day.
