“It’s great to be pairing up with Scott Aho and MDR Motorsport again this year in our Class D Subaru BRZ,” said driver, Haydn Clark
“After a successful and fun 2022 race, we were very excited to enter this fantastic race again this year. For us it brings a great group of mates together to enjoy and participate as a team and although we are super competitive people it’s the friendships and funs times that are most important to us. We again have brought back the same SA based sponsors that supported our campaign last year, and we truly thank them for this.”
Added Scott Aho: “I’m excited to be heading back again this year, we really exceeded our expectations last year and was so impressed with how competitive we were all day. Our crew of mates and family all made the journey over to help out, I was even lucky enough to have my Mum and Dad camp out in their bus nearby and lend a hand at the track.
“We’re super proud to be sponsored by so many local SA businesses who are keen to back a little South Australian race team.”
