Seton talks move into engineering role

BEHIND the wheel, Aaron Seton’s resume includes a Super2 pole position, a Bathurst 1000 start, and a Trans Am title.

But race engineering is where his immediate future lies.

Seton announced late last year he would step back from driving in Super2 but remain entrenched in the Gomersall Motorsport business.

Now he has been confirmed as 2024 race engineer for Gomersall recruit and Super2 rookie Reuben Goodall.

Having lined up for the Sieders Racing Team in Toyota 86s, Goodall impressed in Adelaide last November by snatching pole position on his V8 SuperUtes debut.

For Super2 this year, he’ll have a relatable voice guiding him on the radio in the form of Seton.

“I’ve got a few years’ experience in the Dunlop Series and coming up through the junior ranks, so it’s cool to be able to share with Reuben, the knowledge that I’ve learnt over the years and what’s worked and what hasn’t worked,” Seton told V8 Sleuth.

“I’m keen to help him as much as I can.”

Like his father Glenn, Seton Jr is mechanically minded and thrives on the challenge presented by the engineering side of motorsport.

“I do enjoy the engineering stuff,” said the 25-year-old, who will still cut reference laps at test days.

“The fascinating part is what changes on a car makes you feel different things as a driver, and I’ve been fortunate to get the experience the last three years in Super2 to feel what the changes make and feel the Triple Eight philosophy of a Supercar.

“So I feel like that’s valuable and hopefully I’ll be able to put my best foot forward.”

The 2024 Super2 season will open at Mount Panorama on February 23-25.
