Super2 squad signs DeBorre as team principal

AIM Motorsport has signalled its intentions to become a Dunlop Super2 Series powerhouse by stocking up on some serious engineering firepower.

Most prominently, AIM has signed Adam DeBorre as its team principal and race engineer for Zane Morse.

DeBorre was Chaz Mostert’s long-time engineer, the pair achieving two Bathurst 1000 wins together before amicably splitting at the end of 2023.

DeBorre and the Morse family have been known to one another for quite some time, and the respected engineer is being thrown the keys to take AIM to new heights.

“What he says goes,” AIM co-owner Andre Morse told V8 Sleuth.

“We want to move forward; the only way to that is with the right engineering, right mechanics, right drivers, all that sort of stuff.

“Having Adam in there gives us that expertise.”

The squad’s recruiting spree has also netted Erik Pender, another Bathurst 1000-winning engineer and the man behind Greg Murphy’s famous Lap of the Gods performance in 2003.

Pender will be race engineer on the second AIM Mustang, for which a driver is yet to be announced.

Pender and DeBorre have previously worked together at Melbourne Performance Centre.

“Someone like EP is very calming but he has got his way of putting his point across that you can understand as a driver,” said Morse Sr.

James Masterton will also run his Gen2 Mustang out of the AIM stable in 2024.
