Follow Matthew Campbell

A standout on debut in the PIRTEK Enduro Cup last year with Nissan, Matt Campbell was snapped up by Triple Eight to partner Shane van Gisbergen in 2017.

For Campbell, the Supercars races are the perfect dovetail to his main duties - racing as a Porsche factory-backed youngster in its flagship Supercup.

The Supercup chance, which saw Campbell move to Germany at the start of 2017, came after the Queenslander won last year's Carrera Cup Australia.

A product of Formula Ford, Campbell has focussed on Porsches since 2014, where he was a standout in the GT3 Cup Challenge.

He dominated Class B in that season before making an immediate impression on debut in the Carrera Cup the following year.
