Caitlyn Wood ??

Statistically most "rock spiders" have spent some time in their lives as a church youth group leader.
Think about that.

Wouldn't imagine Wood would be wanting to distract herself from what will already be a tough gig in the Blancpain Sprint Series. But who knows, 2018?? Leanne could be a pretty safe bet I guess. I would like to see Chelsea Angelo give it a crack, but i doubt she would have the funding... Talent is there though.

not to mention that she can probably pull a bit of a budget if needed

A comment on their Facebook page has surfaced, they say it will not be Renee Gracie, Leanne Tander or Simona De Silvestro.

They didn't rule out Chelsea Angelo?

Wonder who it will be. Whoever it is would get good value for money, plenty of real estate down the side of that thing!

I've spoken at length with those behind the scenes at Heretic Autosport and can say it's an impressive and well organised setup. JB is a quality driver and it's great to welcome Melinda into the Australian GT fraternity too. Speaking with her over the weekend she mentioned she'd not driven anything with the sort of power the Bentley has in 17 years. She's been easing her way back into racing with some historic racing.

Just browsing facebook and Nick percat's and drive.com.au's pages are at the Zagame motorsport opening and it looks like a pretty big organisation. The hurracan is in a lovely timken bearings livery (love the orange on black) plus cup cars formula 4 and they are the dealer for mclaren gt4 cars in aus (not 100% sure if they are doing the gt3 cars as well and bot 100% sure how it works in with the tekno deal even thoigh they mentioned it in auto action this week). Anyway cant wait to see another hurracan racing this year

I like 3/4 of it, but the rear quarter looks a bit fiddly to me with the bearing graphic. Maybe in the flesh it will come up better.

That bright orange suits the Lamborghini well, at least its not another black car. Bit weird that Zagame announce that they are the dealer for McLaren Motorsport in Australia and yet decide to field a Huracan and not a 650S.....Nice to see Cam McConville teaming up with Adrian Dteiz again.

I think I heard somewhere that they are dealing with sales of the GT4 McLaren, but I could be wrong (I frequently am) :P

As I understand it they're effectively two seperate deals under the one Zagame Motorsporrt umbrella.

Zagame is a dealer of pretty well every brand represented on the Australian GT grid with the exception of Bentley. Lamborghini is one of those brands, hence Adrian purchased the car and had Zagame run it.

Separate to that, Cam and Bobby signed a deal with McLaren. Their focus is GT4 cars but I guess if you went in there wanting a 650S GT3 they could sort you out too.

They also announced Formula 4 and Carrera Cup cars/drivers on Friday.

In short, Zagame is not brand exclusive, where many other outfits in the Australian market are.

CRP Racing ran with a gigantic DeVilbiss paint spray gun on the side of their Audi here in the US in 2015. Looked a bit odd in photos, but strangely worked in person. Maybe this Lambo will work out the same way for you guys.

I've got to say, as a mechanic, I find the automotive sponsors like Timken pretty cool. US sports car racing doesn't tend to get those as much.
