AFTER finishing up in 11th place during his inaugural V8 Supercars Dunlop Series last year, local driver, Garry Jacobson will be taking to the track with Eggleston Motorsport (EMS) for the 2015 season in his #54 Holden this week.
Joined by reigning champ, Paul Dumbrell and Ant Pedersen, 22 year old Jacobson has already started his season strongly with a class victory in the Bathurst 12 Hour and is aiming to improve on his placing last year.
“It is great to be a part of the championship-winning team at Eggleston Motorsport once again and I see this as the perfect opportunity to consolidate and build on my results and experience from 2014.
“It’s the ideal combination to again be driving the #54 Holden and be working alongside the expertise of the team and my engineer Dan Kroehn.
“I look forward to being able to piece together everything I have learnt and make sure I am on the podium this year.”
EMS Team Manager, Rachael Wagg says the continuity of having the same driver line-up puts the team in good stead for the chase for back-to-back series victories.
“We have exceptionally high expectations of our drivers, and there is no reason why they can’t all be at the very front.
“Paul has shown why he is one of the best in the business and we expect to see Ant and Garry giving him a run for his money this year.
“Both Ant and Garry showed great speed at times, but their overall results were not a true reflection of their driving talent.”
The 2015 V8 Supercars Dunlop Series will begin at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide from February 26 to March 1.
