Garry Rogers Motorsport mechanic James Golding graduates to full-time Supercars competition this year.

After two years in the Dunlop Super2 Series, Golding spent 2017 on the sidelines, save for two main game wildcard starts at Winton and Queensland Raceway and a PIRTEK Enduro Cup campaign with Garth Tander.

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 seventh in the world.

Golding graduated to open-wheelers the following year, contesting the Victorian Formula Ford Championship and winning 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, when he was narrowly beaten to 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 ’16, setting his path to a full-time Supercars drive in motion.
