Team 18 to throw open doors before Adelaide

SUPERCARS squad Team 18 has announced its second annual open day to be held in the lead-up to the VAILO Adelaide 500.

The occasion will take place on Sunday November 19 at the Chevrolet team’s Mount Waverley headquarters (3/21 Lionel Road) from 11am to 2pm AEDT.

Drivers Mark Winterbottom and Scott Pye will be in attendance, as will their respective Gen3 Camaros, as well as team owner Charlie Schwerkolt’s 2010 championship-winning Dick Johnson Racing Falcon.

Workshop tours will occur and crash-damaged panels will be up for grabs.

“After the success of last year’s open day, we were overwhelmed with requests to open the doors up again and we are so excited to announce our second annual open day coming up before the Adelaide 500,” said Schwerkolt.

“Last year’s family open day exceeded our expectations with over 350 fans through the doors, and we expect this year’s open day to be another day full of entertainment for fans of all ages.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for our fans to experience the heart of our operations and get to know the Team 18 family. We can’t wait to share our world with the wider motorsport and car community.

“With the presence of our amazing drivers, thrilling activities, and a host of surprises, we aim to make it a day to remember for all.”

Adelaide (November 23-26) marks Pye’s final event before departing, with eight-time race winner David Reynolds joining as Winterbottom’s new teammate for 2024.
