MSR co-owner steps back from team duties

MATT Stone Racing has confirmed co-owner Jason Gomersall will take a step back from the Supercars squad.

Rumours had recently started to swirl about Gomersall’s future, leading MSR to clarify the situation.

He is not selling his stake, but rather is stepping down from his advisory position to dedicate his full focus to his business, iseek, and the racing exploits of himself and his son.

“For the immediate future I need to focus my attention on my core business as it goes through a period of continual expansion,” said Gomersall, who is a regular in Super3.

“My passion and commitment for motorsport is as strong as ever, but I will be focusing the limited amount of time that I do have for that pursuit to just my own and my son’s racing.”

MSR CEO and majority owner Matt Stone confirmed Gomersall is staying on as an equity partner.

“Jason has been and remains an excellent partner in the business and will always remain a personal mentor of mine,” said Stone.

“These changes are more of a formalisation of how the team currently operates and won’t see any fundamental changes within the team’s operations.”

It’s not the only change within the MSR system, with driver Todd Hazelwood set to switch to the Blanchard Racing Team for 2023.
