At the launch of the new Garry Rogers Motorsport Commodore in Melbourne this afternoon, the team confirmed their two co drivers who will be racing alongside regular drivers, James Moffat and Garth Tander.
In the 2017 Championship James Moffat will continue in the 34 car and Garth Tander will race the 33 car.
Joining James for the Endurance Cup will be Richard Muscat. Richard competed in the 2016 Dunlop Series following a season in Carrera Cup and also previous racing in the Australian GT Championship.
“I was particularly impressed with Richard’s performance in his first season driving a Supercar and his ability to adapt to these cars and his “no fuss” approach sees him fit in really well with our Team,” said Garry Rogers. “Richard is extremely committed and after concreting with the family business rushes into the workshop to see how he can help the team. I am really pleased that Richard has developed to such a level that I believe he will be an extremely valuable Endurance Driver.”
Meanwhile, James “Bieber” Golding will join Garth for the Endurance Cup and the team also plan to take advantage of the wildcard opportunities and run Bieber in a couple of the Supercar sprint rounds throughout the season.
“Bieber is in his final year of his Mechanics Apprenticeship with us and finished 4th in the Dunlop Series last season. I certainly see similarities between Bieber and Garth in his younger years. I am sure that if he keeps his eyes and ears open Bieber will learn a lot from Garth throughout the season,” Rogers added.
