He engineered James Courtney to his Supercars Championship win in 2010 and has been team manager for Nissan Motorsport since 2014 – Scott Sinclair sat down with supercars.com ahead of his Inside Supercars appearance this evening.

VASC: What was the last concert or sporting event you attended as a fan?

SS: “Probably the AFL grand final last year, and concert would be Bon Jovi. That was a while ago.”

Do you have a signature dish in the kitchen?

“Lasagne.”

What’s on your bucket list?

“Probably major sporting events like US Masters golf, Superbowl, big American sporting events.”

If you were a DJ, what would your DJ name be?

“DJ Xtreme, that’s what I used to be. It starts with an X and not an E … that was a while ago. When we left school we started doing it, a mate and me. It was a good fun but it has been a while now.” 

Your go to karaoke song?

“Definitely Daryl Braithwaite, Horses.” 

Your favourite off-track memory this year?

“We had another baby – my third daughter was born between Phillip Island and Perth.” 

If you could choose your ultimate driver pairing for the Bathurst 1000 who would you pick?

“Shane [van Gisbergen] is probably going pretty good at the moment in the longer races so I’d probably take Shane, and all of our guys can battle it out for the other seat.”

A question from last week’s guest Will Davison – what’s your best memory of working with him in 2008?

“First race win – I think it was his first race win in V8s and mine as well, that was race two at Eastern Creek.”

A question for next week’s guest Chaz Mostert?

“How are you enjoying your new haircut?”
