Jeremy Gray will return to the Australian Production Car Series next weekend, featuring a secret weapon, Australian GT driver George Miedecke.

Gray has sat out of the APCS, since the he debuted his new Falcon GT at the Bathurst 6 Hour earlier this year. However has used the time since then to continue to work on, and develop the car.

“A couple of teething issues got in our way at Bathurst – no excuses” enthused Gray.

“But our team have done a great job working out a few of the kinks that always come with a brand new car. We tested at Sydney Motorsport Park recently and man, this thing is fast now!”

Gray was also excited about his new co-driver: “I’ve known George a long time and am excited to see what he produces as he’s world class for sure. The last time we raced together we won the V8 Utes ‘Legends’ race at Clipsal so we are hoping for more of the same!”

George Miedecke, has had a pretty quiet year after suffering a carbon monoxide poisoning which induced crash at the Bathurst 12 Hour earlier this year. Leaving him to sit out of the Aston Martin Vantage GT3 that he normally campaigns in Australian GT. But he’s excited to return to the wheel of the Ford Falcon.

“The work that Jeremy and the whole team put into the car is evident.” said Miedecke.

“I’m really excited to work with the guys and I know Jeremy will get the most out of the big girl! I’m told a couple of extra developments will be applied before we hit the track and we’re certainly not going there to come second.”

We’ll track the progress Gray and Miedecke as well as all the other Australian Production Car Series action as part of next weekends Shannons Nationals at Phillip Island. Make sure you follow us on social media FacebookTwitter and Instagram for all the latest updates from Phillip Island.
