Ferdinand ‘Enzo’ Pastor, who harboured ambitions of becoming a V8 Supercar driver, has been slain in a shooting in the Philippines.

The Manila-born Pastor was gunned down with his assistant Paolo Salazar in Quezon City.

Pastor, 32, suffered fatal wounds in the head and neck after being ambushed by gunmen riding on a motorcycle.

He was travelling in a truck carrying a racecar for the continuation of the Asian V8 Championship at the Pampanga circuit at Clark at the time of the murders.

Pastor tested a Triple Eight Commodore at Queensland Raceway after being evaluated by Paul Morris at his V8 Superschool at Norwell in 2011.
