Garry Rogers Motorsport mechanic James Golding teams with Garth Tander for his second assault on the PIRTEK Enduro Cup.
His debut last year alongside James Moffat was a nightmare, with a heavy crash on the opening lap at Sandown and another in practice at Bathurst.
After two years in the Super2 Series, Golding has spent this year on the sidelines, save for two main game wildcard starts at Winton and Queensland Raceway.
An accomplished karter, Golding has an Australia National title and two Victorian state titles to his name, while the Victorian represented Australia at the World Rotax Grand Finals in 2012, where he was ranked 7th in the world.
The following year Golding graduated to open wheelers, contesting the Victorian Formula Ford Championship, where he won the first race of the season on debut. Despite missing one round and racking up the most race wins, Golding ended his maiden assault in fourth, before stepping up to the national championship in 2014, where he was narrowly trumped for the title.
Golding's talent soon caught the eye of team owner Garry Rogers, who gave him the chance to contest the final round of the 2014 Dunlop Series at Homebush. He impressed on debut – so much so that GRM granted him a drive in the Dunlop Series in 2015 and again in 2016.
