Long term Matt Stone Racing engineer, Wes McDougall will depart the team at the end of 2020 and move to Triple 8 Race Engineering.
After joining Matt Stone Racing in 2016, Wes has contributed to many accomplishments with the team over the past 5 years. Winning the Super 2 championship in 2017 is definitely a major highlight in his career with MSR. Wes then played a key role in the success of the team’s transition into the Supercars main game field and was a major asset when MSR expanded to two cars this year. The experience and knowledge he had gained from his time with Stone Brothers Racing was extremely helpful in getting MSR to where they are today.
This move comes at a time when MSR are in the process of a performance restructure in both their mechanical and engineering departments ahead of the 2021 season. This change in team personnel offers further opportunities for all staff, present and future, plus the team as a whole as MSR look to improve their efforts in 2021.
Matt Stone Racing aim to continue to enhance their succession plan within the engineering department as the team look to promote from within, while also looking for, and in discussions with other possible candidates to join the team.
Matt Stone Racing are certain this move will further strengthen their already established engineering and technical relationship and alliance with Triple 8 moving forward.
We thank Wes for his dedication to Matt Stone Racing and wish him well on his new endeavours.
