Seton to race for Gomersall breakaway team

AARON Seton will contest his third full season in the Dunlop Super2 Series, joining forces with newly formed Gomersall Motorsport.

Seton has spent the past two years representing Matt Stone Racing, with whom he made his Repco Bathurst 1000 debut last October.

There have been flashes of pace throughout for the third-generation driver, with a third-place finish at the 2021 Mount Panorama round his best result to date.

With MSR electing not to return to Super2 this year and instead pour full focus into its Gen3 program, Seton has aligned with Gomersall to race a Holden ZB Commodore, which he is due to test tomorrow at Queensland Raceway.

Previously an influential figure and car owner at MSR, Gomersall has set up his own team based out of Arundel on the Gold Coast.

“I’m super excited to be part of the 2023 Super2 grid,” Seton said.

“I really appreciate the opportunity that Jason Gomersall has given me in Super2, and also Leo Tobin as well, they both got together to make this possible the last few years, so yeah just very thankful to them.

“I’m just looking forward to getting on track this year, it’s a very exciting program that we’ve put together and I just can’t wait to get into it.”

Gomersall Motorsport will field two cars this year, with Seton in Super2 and Gomersall himself remaining in Super3.

“I am pleased to welcome Aaron Seton to the Gomersall Motorsport team,” said Gomersall.

“I first met Aaron when I raced his father and later himself in TCM.

“I stayed in touch and followed his career as he went through various categories including TA2 and I really like the way he goes about his business.

“I was really keen to see him continuing in Super2 this year.”

As it stands, Seton is the second-highest placed finisher in the 2022 Super2 standings confirmed to return, behind Matt Chahda who will drive an ex-Brad Jones Racing ZB Commodore.

Tyler Everingham may yet join the field though, with MW Motorsport having purchased a Tickford Racing Gen2 Mustang.

The Super3 field meanwhile is starting to take shape, including Nissan-shod Cameron McLeod and Mason Kelly, Erebus Academy driver Jobe Stewart and Eggleston Motorsport’s Matthew McCutcheon.
