Tony Ricciardello will be joined by Taz Douglas at Phillip Island and Bathurst

Today, the Castrol EDGE Endurance Countdown looks at the #16 Stratco Racing Holden Commodore VE entry of Tony Ricciardello and Taz Douglas.

In terms of results, there hasn’t been much to talk about for the #16 car this year. However, there is a great story inside this entry for the V8 Supercars endurance races at Phillip Island and Bathurst.

Regular driver Tony Ricciardello will be joined by Taz Douglas – Fujitsu V8 Series racer and cancer survivor.

Douglas was diagnosed with lymphoma (cancer) earlier this year and underwent months of chemotherapy, fighting his illness. He made a comeback to the Fujitsu V8 Series at Townsville, taking the best result of his career and has been rewarded with a seat at Kelly Racing.

Don’t expect to see the red Stratco Commodore VE fighting for the win, but know that there is a lot of fight from within the driver’s seat …
