Supercars Managing Director Matt Braid will leave the sport at the end of the 2017 season.

CEO James Warburton said Braid had advised him of his resignation this morning, following a change in his personal circumstances which prevented the extensive travel the position requires.

“Matt has done a tremendous job in rebuilding our Commercial sales operation into a very robust and successful team which is a market leader in Australian sport,” Mr Warburton said.

“The sport has never been stronger commercially and the proof is not only in our results but in the calibre of new partners we have secured in recent times.

“Personally, Matt has been an enormous asset in running the day to day operations of the business which collectively this has allowed us to achieve some outstanding results and momentum.

“Matt has also worked tirelessly on a number of 2025 projects, most notably the recent SuperUtes Series and announcements which will come to life in 2018, as well as the Super5000 concept.

“I look forward to working with Matt for the remainder of the year and taking more steps towards realising our 2025 vision. We will be sorry to see him go, but family always comes first.”
