Wood switches to Ashley Seward Motorsport

Dale Wood

Dale Wood will spearhead a four-car Ashley Seward Motorsport line-up for the 2021 Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Australia season.

Wood, who has 13 Bathurst 1000 starts to his name, makes the switch after three seasons with Sonic Motor Racing Services.

He’ll steer the team’s sole entry in the Pro Class, with Geoff Emery, Dean Cook and Scott Taylor contesting the Pro-Am division.

“I’ve known Ashley for a long time, and I’m looking forward to joining his operation,” Wood said.

“Ash and I share the same passion for motorsport and for on-track success; I’m very focused on doing the best job I can to deliver Ash and the team their first outright Carrera Cup title.

“I love the category – it’s full of accomplished drivers from a variety of backgrounds.

“All the cars are exactly the same, so it really comes down to who does the best job.”

Wood, who Brad Jones Racing confirmed on a two-year Supercars co-driving deal on Monday, hinted at an imminent announcement of his new Carrera Cup livery.

“I have some ripper partners onboard for the season and the car looks sensational – I can’t wait to take the covers off it,” he added.

Emery enters his maiden Carrera Cup season with a resume boasting 10 national titles; Cook and Taylor meanwhile have been fixtures on the grid for some time now.
