Supercars makes key staffing appointments

SUPERCARS has announced two staffing recruitments to bolster its personnel ahead of the 2024 season.

James Delzoppo has been hired from Motorsport Australia, where he served in various roles including as Supercars deputy race director.

Delzoppo will take over as motorsport operations manager from Paul Martin after the latter opted to scale back his Supercars duties.

Martin, who filled in as head of motorsport at the 2023 Adelaide 500, will assist with the Dunlop Series in a contractor capacity.

Meanwhile, Scott Harman has joined Supercars from British GT3 squad Garage 59, and will be the category’s performance engineer.

Hugh Millear has also been promoted within Supercars, from technical projects manager to the newly created role of motorsport engineering manager.

“James, Hugh, and Scott bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to their respective roles,” said Supercars general manager of motorsport Tim Edwards.

“Their addition to the motorsport team is a testament to our commitment to maintaining the highest standards in Australian motorsport.

“Paul Martin has played a pivotal role in shaping the direction of Supercars in recent years. He will leave an indelible mark on the sport, and we’re grateful for his dedication.

“While stepping back from full-time duties, we’re pleased that Paul will continue to support the Dunlop Super2 Series that he is so passionate about.

“With these strategic changes, we are confident in the continued success and growth of the Supercars motorsport team.
