Australian touring car legend Glenn Seton is stepping down as a judge at Aussie Driver Search to allow his son Aaron to take part in next year’s competition.

Glenn joined the talent finding contest this year as one of its judges, assessing candidates as the scheme aims to unearth the next rising star of Australian motorsport.

ADS announced its judges line up for 2019 which includes Jason Bright, Jason Bargwanna, Craig Baird and Tony D’Alberto but omitted Seton. 

Seton says he has enjoyed his time as judge but has stood down in order to allow his son Aaron to take part in the contest, ensuring the competition remains fair and transparent.

“It has been fantastic to be apart of the program as it is something that motorsport has need for many years,” said Glenn Seton.

“I want to give my son Aaron a chance and me being around as a coach is probably not fair.

“I think he (Aaron) will do a great job so I think it is best for me to step aside.

“I have really enjoyed it and loved working with all the people.”

The competition has revealed a $1 Million prize pool for next year, including a Super2 Series and the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour. 

Aaron Seton has been competing in the TA2 Series this year and was part of the Class C winning crew of Matthew Brabham and Tony Longhust at this year’s Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.

Glenn Seton will make his final appearance as judge at the final round at Wakefield Park on December 11-12.
