Third-generation driver Aaron Seton moves to a new team for his third Dunlop Super2 Series campaign. After two seasons with Matt Stone Racing, Seton steps into an ex-MSR ZB Commodore run by a new outfit owned by longtime MSR partner Jason Gomersall.
Seton backed up his quietly impressive debut Super2 season of 2021 with another last year. He repeated his ninth place finish in the standings amid a much deeper field than in his rookie year, posting a pair of top-five qualifying efforts and race finishes, and making his 'main game' debut as a co-driver at the Repco Bathurst 1000.
Son of two-time Australian Touring Car Champion Glenn and grandson of 1965 Bathurst winner Bo, Aaron always appeared destined to take up racing. He progressed through karts and spent time in Production Cars before tackling the Toyota Racing Series in 2016.
A brief foray into the V8 Touring Car Series in 2017 was thwarted by a lack of budget and he instead turned his hand to TA2 racing. Seton won that series in 2019 and was running up the front in Trans Am with similar cars in Adelaide in 2020 before COVID-19 forced that series to be parked up for the remainder of the season.
Prior to signing with MSR, Seton spent two years as a mechanic at DJR Team Penske, which included driving the team's Mustang at various Supercars aerodynamic tests.
