Liam McAdam to join Dunlop Series in ex-Whincup Commodore for Bathurst and Sydney - also signs for 2016 Dunlop Series

EGGLESTON Motorsport will expand to four cars for the final two rounds of this year’s V8 Supercars Dunlop Series at Bathurst and Sydney Olympic Park.

The team’s 18-year-old Kumho V8 Touring Car Series driver Liam McAdam will make his DVS debut at Bathurst and drive the team’s recently acquired, ex-Triple Eight Commodore VE II.

He will compete alongside the team’s existing drivers, Paul Dumbrell, Garry Jacobson and Ant Pedersen in a four-car squad in the final two rounds of the Dunlop Series.

The Bathurst and Sydney program is a prelude to next year where McAdam has confirmed a deal to drive in the 2016 Dunlop Series for Eggleston Motorsport.

McAdam has been impressive this year in an older model Commodore VZ run by EMS in the Kumho Series for ex-V8 Supercars and took a clean sweep in last weekend’s round at Phillip Island to further extend his series lead with one round to go.
