Dunlop Series: Main-game stars of tomorrow

204DVSSTARS

The Dunlop Development Series is undergoing a refresh in 2016, with the introduction of Car of the Future-generation cars and a new crop of youngsters.

The likes of Cameron Waters, Scott McLaughlin, Chaz Mostert, Nick Percat and Scott Pye have long moved out to cement "rising star" tags in the main game.

Moving in is a young batch of drivers with varying experiences. Some have useful links to main-game teams, others have strong backing behind them. But they all share one common goal, a full-time seat in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.

V8X Supercar Magazine issue #92, a special Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore edition, also profiles some of the leading contenders in the 2016 Dunlop Development Series and future prospects for main-game drives.

V8X Supercar Magazine issue #92 is on sale now in stores with the digital edition available in the official V8X app (in the App Store and Google Play), online at DigitalEdition.V8XMagazine.com.au and in the Magzter app store.

The feature includes Prodrive Racing Australia duo Jack Le Brocq and Garry Jacobson, who are racing new-generation Ford FG X Falcons and have won the opening three rounds of the 2016 season between them.

Garry Rogers Motorsport's duo James Golding and Richard Muscat race new-generation Holden VF Commodores and represent the latest youngsters to be given a chance by renowned talent spotter, Garry Rogers.

Brad Jones Racing's Macauley Jones is the latest driver to come from the Jones stable, with he and teammate Josh Kean also in Holden VF Commdores.

South Australian youngster Todd Hazelwood drives an ex-Tekno Autosports Holden VF Commodore for Matt Stone Racing, while teenager Alex Rullo is also amongst the Holden brigade with Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport.

Brothers Jake and Kurt Kostecki form the Kostecki Brothers Racing family outfit field ex-Triple Eight Race Engineering equipment in the shape of two Holden VF Commodores.

Anton De Pasquale returned to Australia from racing open wheelers in Europe to commence his touring-car career with Paul Morris Motorsport, while former Porsche Carrera Cup Shae Davies joined Bryce Fullwood at MW Motorsport in 2016.

Dragon Motor Racing's Chelsea Angelo stepped up into the Dunlop Series in a full-time capacity in 2016, following an impressive one-off appearance last season and a strong stint in Australian Formula 3.
