Supercars engineer to guide sprintcar convert

CALLUM Walker will return for a second season in the Dunlop Super2 Series, but in a different car.

The former sprintcar racer made the switch to circuit racing in Supercars machinery last year, leasing a ZB Commodore off PremiAir Racing for his rookie campaign.

A challenging season eventuated, with Walker managing just one top 10 finish.

But rather than throw in the towel, the Queenslander is back to build on his 2023 lessons – and his family team has secured a helping hand to aid that mission.

With his 2023 car redistributed by PremiAir to Super2 rookie Cameron McLeod, Walker will drive the Jason Gomersall-owned Holden raced last year by Nash Morris.

What’s more is Gomersall Motorsport will assist with preparing the car between rounds.

Helped by guidance from the experienced Wes McDougall at a Queensland Raceway test on Monday, Walker is set to have Sheldon Auhl engineering at race meetings.

Auhl operated as a main game race engineer with the Blanchard Racing Team and its then driver Todd Hazelwood through the second half of last year.

The lead Gomersall Motorsport ZB Commodore this year will be driven by Toyota 86 graduate Reuben Goodall.

Goodall takes over from Aaron Seton, who himself will slide into a race engineering role.

The 2024 Super2 season starts later this month at Mount Panorama.
