DJR Team Penske has revealed its managerial structure for the 2017 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship following the departure of team manager Jeff Swartwout.
The squad has confirmed that Ben Croke will become the new team manager this season at today’s launch of its Shell-liveried Falcons in Melbourne.
Croke joined the Queensland-based squad last year having enjoyed a lengthy spell in the sport that saw him work for Stone Brothers Racing and Erebus.
It has also been announced that former Triple Eight technical guru Ludo Lacroix will operate under the title of competition director which will see the Frenchman oversee all technical aspects of the team.
DJRTP is yet to confirm if Lacroix will directly engineer car this season.
