Triple Eight Race Engineering is pleased to welcome Angelo Mouzouris to the crew, who will pilot the team’s single Dunlop Super2 Series entry for the 2020 season.
Angelo joins Triple Eight off the back of winning the 2019 Formula Ford Series and the 18-year-old is relocating to Brisbane to work with the team between events.
“I am really excited to join Triple Eight Engineering and compete in the Dunlop Super2 Series,” he said.
“It really is a dream come true for me to race a supercar and I can’t thank Triple Eight enough for giving me this opportunity to race one of their cars. It will be an incredible learning experience for me, both on and off the track. I can’t wait to get going, not only competing but moving to Brisbane to work for Triple Eight.
“I am grateful for the support from my sponsors, Mantel Group and Pitbox.io, for making this move possible.”
Having successfully competed in the development series from 2011 to 2013, Triple Eight returned to the category last year, fielding Kurt Kostecki and Brenton Grove, who finished second and seventh in the championship respectively. For Triple Eight, entering the Super2 Series offers an opportunity to develop not only young driving talent, but also engineers and mechanics.
“We really enjoyed being back in the Super2 paddock last year, especially the satisfaction of watching the development of young drivers and crew members,” said Triple Eight’s Managing Director, Roland Dane.
“Angelo has shown a high level of talent behind the wheel; Formula Ford is an incredibly competitive series and many of Australia’s top drivers have cut their teeth there over the years.
“We’re looking forward to not only having him in the team as a driver, but also working with us in the factory, which will only serve to benefit his on-track campaign as he builds relationships and gets to know the car.”
The first round of the 2020 Dunlop Super2 Championship takes place at the Adelaide 500, 20-23 February.
