Paul Morris will make his return to the Fujitsu V8 Supercars Series in the next round at Barbagallo Raceway.
The V8 team owner will enter his ‘Love Machine’ in the Perth event, to be held on April 29-May 1. It will be the first time the Fujitsu V8s have ever travelled to the West Australian circuit.
Morris missed the first round of the series due to his busy schedule, but is looking forward to his return.
“I was just too busy. I’ve been busy with work and the winery,” Morris told Speedcafe.com.
“I didn’t have time to dedicate to it, and Clipsal is not the place to come to if you’re not prepared.
“I’ll be at Perth, for sure, and I’d love to do Townsville, QR and Bathurst.”
After watching the opening round of the Fujitsu V8 Series at the Adelaide street track, Morris admits that the competition is at its competitive best, but the young chargers have a lot to learn.
“They’re fast, but they can’t string a race together,” said Morris.
“It was good to see them having a go – Percat was having and go and Thommo (Andrew Thomsposn) was in there, but they’re not going to win the championship driving like that.”
Walkinshaw Racing’s Percat won the opening round in Adelaide, but it wasn’t without controversy. He collided with Race 1 winner Andrew Thompson, earning himself a drive-through penalty.
Percat fought back to take third place and the round spoils.
