Tim Blanchard set for V8 Utes return in Darwin
Tim Blanchard will make a return to V8 Utes class, competing as the the Auto One Wildcard in Round 4 of the series at Hidden Valley Raceway.
This will be Blanchard’s third time behind the wheel of a V8 Ute after he drove the Wildcard entry at Darwin last year and debuted in 2010 at the Armor All Gold Coast 600.
The newly-appointed Auto One ambassador says he is pleased to make his return.
“I’m more excited to be back in the utes this time with my increased role for Auto One, but I’m just going to treat it like another race meeting and do as well as I can,” Blanchard said.
“I don’t think the off-track role changes my on–track approach and I’m really looking forward to driving.
The Melbourne based driver is currently racing in the Dunlop Series, driving the Jaylec Automotive Electrical Ford. He is currently eighth in the series.
He will team up with Todd Kelly in the V8 Supercars endurance races this year, driving the #7 Jack Daniel’s Racing Commodore VE.
