Former Super2 veteran steps out of retirement

FORMER Dunlop Super2 Series regular Adam Marjoram has been lured out of retirement to race in the 2023 V8 SuperUte Series.

Marjoram made a successful one-off V8 SuperUte appearance last year at The Bend, taking the round victory.

He has now been confirmed for a full campaign with Team Triton Racing, with the new season to kick off at Wanneroo Raceway across April 28-30.

Marjoram made 65 Super2 race starts across four seasons split between Matt Stone Racing and Image Racing.

Prior to that, he raced in the old V8 Ute Series, including placing fourth in the end-of-year standings for Erebus Motorsport in 2015.

Marjoram retired from motorsport at the start of 2020 but is excited to be back; he’ll have long-time racer Craig Dontas as team manager and Clifton Campbell as engineer.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve been excited about racing, and now I am,” he said.

“To get the win and the pole on a comeback round last year really reignited the passion for motorsport.

“It put a pep in my step and when Craig called to ask if I’d like to race this year it was a very easy yes!

“I had to work really hard at The Bend that weekend because nothing came natural to me in terms of my feedback and settling into the car at first.

“But seeing such a competitive field in SuperUtes this year, I’m relishing the opportunity to push myself harder to take it to a lot of the seasoned campaigners who are back as well.”

Marjoram will run in Motion colours, with the company’s Asia-Pacific chief operating officer Heath Fitzpatrick explaining their attraction to the category and team.

“We were actually really impressed with the diversity that Team Triton had to offer, particularly the diversity within the team and category having a focus on women in sport, junior mechanic and engineering positions,” said Fitzpatrick.

“This inclusion aligned really well with our values here at Motion, and we’re really keen to get involved in 2023.”

Among Marjoram’s competitors this year will be utes legend Ryal Harris.
