Two-time Australian Touring Car Champion and Supercars Hall of Famer, Glenn Seton will make his return to Supercars as engineer for MSR Super 3 driver, and team co-owner Jason Gomersall in his ex SBR FG Ford Falcon.
Having raced under the ford badge for his whole career, right from when he first started in the Touring Car Championship in 1993, Seton is no stranger to the brand. Having also previously raced for Stone Brothers Racing as a co-driver with James Courtney in 2006, Glenn is definitely entering familiar territory.
“Naturally the car I am working on is from my era of racing. It is a project blueprint spec car which has the live diff rear and is the same one that I raced my whole career.” said Glenn.
“It’s always good to come back to Ford, as between myself and my dad’s career we have spent majority of our time racing in Ford cars.”
“To continue supporting the Ford badge and to be here, helping out Jason, and to be a part of MSR’s support program is really exciting.”
Glenn was set to be joined by long time MSR engineer Sheldon Auhl as they both embarked on the roles of heading up the team’s Super 3 and Super 2 campaigns respectively. However, due to the recent Western Australia lockdown situation, and the impending birth of Auhl’s first child, he will unfortunately miss pre-season Super 2 testing at Queensland Raceway and the opening round in Bathurst.
With this, Dean Canto, an experienced multiple championship winning motor racing driver, will step in to fill Auhl’s place before returning as engineer for Chris Smerdon, MSR’s second Super 3 driver from Winton onwards.
Jason Gomersall, MSR team co-owner said, “I am really excited to be back in the Super 3 field again this year and to have Aaron Seton join the team in Super 2 for a full season after a very interrupted season in 2020 with COVID. “
“There have been a few other changes in our support team at MSR with Glenn Seton and Dean Canto engineering our two cars in Super 2 and Super 3 for Bathurst.”
“The whole MSR support crew are really looking forward to working with Glenn and Dean this year, a couple of guys with an amazing amount of experience around Bathurst. I’ll definitely be looking to pick their brains on the track walk when we arrive at Bathurst.”
Gomersall will run in the sister car to Jake Kostecki with a look alike UNIT Racing livery for his 2021 campaign. His livery features a satin matte black underlay with eye catching gold and silver detailing.
“The UNIT livery on my car looks absolutely amazing and stunning so I can’t wait to show it off at Bathurst.”
“It is a privilege to have the combined experience of Glenn and Dean join our support program and I am looking forward to an awesome season with Matt Stone Racing.”
