THOMAS RANDLE JOINS V8 TOURING CARS FOR QUEENSLAND RACEWAY
Aussie International, Thomas Randle, will join this weekends Kumho V8 Touring Car Series with the support of Rusty French.
The young Australian has been forging a career in Europe, racing in the British LMP3 Cup and recently joining the Formula Renault Eurocup where he earned a fourth and sixth place finish at the Red Bull Ring just last weekend.
While Randle is focused on his international career in prototype and open wheel racing, he is no stranger to high powered saloon-style cars having competed in his father’s 800hp SAAB in the Australian Sports Sedan Championship over the last few years.
French, a long time supporter of Randle, purchased the ex-Craig Lowndes Triple Eight BA Falcon earlier this year and will hand over the keys to Randle allowing him to gain more experience in a Supercar at Queensland Raceway.
“I had a run in a Nissan at the end of last year which was a reward for what we did in Australia Formula 4 and this car felt pretty similar in the test at Winton.” said Randle to Supercars.com.
“These cars are a lot of fun to drive. I’ve driven my dad’s Sports Sedan, which has more power and aero, but this car you can really hustle over the kerbs.
“I’m really grateful to Rusty for the opportunity. There’s a lot of good competition in the series but hopefully I can do our guys proud.”
