After a solid first year as a two-car operation, DJR Team Penske has again been bolstered behind the scenes, with
rising star Scott McLaughlin joining Fabian Coulthard to from an all-Kiwi driver line-up for 2017.

Dubbed ‘the next Craig Lowndes’, McLaughlin was the biggest name up for grabs last season with a third-place
championship finish and eight career wins under his belt at just 23 years of age. 

Add technical mastermind Ludo Lacroix – who managed Triple Eight’s switch from Ford to Holden, and to the dominant Cars of the Future – and the team will surely be pushing for its first race win while wearing the name of two legends in ‘The Captain’ Roger Penske and Hall of Famer Dick Johnson. 

Shell reunites with the team after successful years with DJR, giving the team a retro feel this season.
