V8 SuperUtes ace makes switch

AARON Borg will proudly carry the #1 this season as he swaps brands in a mission to go back-to-back in the V8 SuperUte Series.

Borg last year wrapped up the 2022 title, a year on from losing out to Ryal Harris in a controversial finale.

Also with the 2019 Toyota 86 crown to his name, Borg explored a move into the Dunlop Super2 Series but ultimately has ended up re-signing with V8 SuperUtes squad Sieders Racing Team.

Having driven a Holden Colorado last year, he’ll be armed with a new Isuzu D-Max to take on the likes of Ryal Harris, Adam Marjoram and John Steffensen.

“When Luke (Sieders) said there was an opportunity to come back into the SuperUtes I jumped at it,” Borg explained.

“The category is going from strength to strength and presents amazing value to our partners.

“We get great exposure on track and on TV at all the main Supercar events throughout the country which is one of the reasons ACDelco were keen to be part of the 2023 program.

“Any time you get to run the #1 is a great privilege and we’ll be looking to keep it up the front all year, for sure,” he added.

“The boys at Sieders Racing Team have been working extremely hard over the off-season building several new SuperUtes, and I’m lucky enough to be racing in one of the brand-new Isuzu D-MAXs.

“This year is definitely going to be a lot tougher with a lot of new drivers coming in, as well as some mega peddlers returning.

“There’s probably now eight to 10 drivers who will be fighting for race wins, so it’s definitely going to be a fun year, particularly in the reverse grid races.

“I’m looking forward to being on track in Perth and seeing where we can put the #1 ACDelco Isuzu SuperUte.”

The V8 SuperUtes season kicks off on April 28-30 at Wanneroo Raceway.
