LDM SCRAMBLING FOR DRIVER AFTER CAMERON MCCONVILLE WITHDRAWS
Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport are still scrambling to find a driver for their No. 3 Holden Commodore after Cameron McConville withdrew from driving the car this weekend in Townsville.
The veteran driver had been scheduled to drive with LDM again this weekend, after stepping in to drive with the team at the last round in Darwin. However, citing his commitments with Zagame Motorsport, who are running cars in Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge in Sydney, McConville has elected to sit out of the Supercars drive.
It’s understood that McConville let key sponsor Phil Munday from Repair Management Australia and team owner Lucas Dumbrell know of his decision last Sunday. Giving them less than a week to find a replacement.
LDM now must find a driver who not only qualifies for a SuperLicense to steer their second car, but is also available this weekend.
Their problem is exacerbated by the fact that Dunlop Super2 is also racing in Townsville this weekend and drivers can’t race in both categories.
Taz Douglas and Matt Brabham who have previously driven the No.3 Commodore this year, are not expected to be available for the drive, but a number of Supercars co-drivers have already made the trip to Townsville and could be stand in for the weekend.
We’ll have more details as they come to hand.
