Scott Cameron, a regular in the HQ Holdens, will take over the reigns of Richard Mork’s McHitch V8 Ute at the next round at Queensland Raceway next weekend.

Mork, who celebrated his 70th birthday at the previous Ute round in Townsville, offered Cameron the one off drive for the round at Ipswich.

“Richard is keen to give a younger guy a shot and when asked I jumped at it” said Cameron.

Mork also went on to confirm that he would get back behind the wheel for following round at Bathurst.

Cameron is no stranger to door to door racing, having competed in NSW HQ racing since 2012. In 2016 he finished 5th outright at the 2016 HQ Nationals at Wakefield Park.

Cameron will get the chance test the McHitch V8 Ute at Sydney Motorsport Park this weekend ahead of his racing debut in Queensland.
