Former V8 Supercar racer to make Kumho Series debut at Phillip Island

FORMER full-time V8 Supercar Championship regular Cameron McConville will return to the wheel of a V8 Commodore in this weekend’s fourth round of the Kumho Tyres Australian V8 Touring Car Series at Phillip Island.

McConville, 40, last competed in a V8 Supercar at Bathurst in 2012 and has since become Porsche Cars Australia Motorsport Manager.

The five-time Bathurst 1000 podium finisher will drive an ex-Holden Racing Team Commodore for Eggleston Motorsport this weekend as teammate to rookie Justin Ruggier.

“EMS wanted someone in the car for its debut who had experience in a V8 and in particular with a HRT/Walkinshaw-built car and I happen to be down there with the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge, so it made sense for us to team up for the round,” says McConville.
