Woods, who leads the inaugural ECB SuperUtes Series, is also making a one-off start after four race wins in Aussie Racing Cars last year.

Another former regular in Adam Uebergang also joins the grid.

As previously reported, recently confirmed Matt Stone Racing Pirtek Enduro Cup driver and Darwin native Bryce Fullwood will make his debut in the series this weekend.
