Everingham switches to Ford Mustang Trans Am team
Tyler Everingham will race a Ford Mustang in Round 4 of the The Shannons SpeedSeries’ Hi-Tec Oils Race Winton.
The 22-year-old will line up for The Racing Academy, leaving Dream Racing Australia, where he campaigned a Chevrolet Camaro.
Elliott Cleary and Cody Gillis will join Everingham in a trio of The Racing Academy Mustangs with a driver for his former seat to be confirmed ahead Winton.
“I had a test day in the new car and I was happy and really comfortable,” said Everingham.
“It’s a new challenge, it’s a bit of a different driving style in these cars but it’s all a learning curve and I am looking forward to getting back into it at Winton.

“It’s looking like there could be rain, it’s all an unknown at this point but I’m comfortable in mixed conditions and I might even be doing a little bit of a rain dance.”
