Todd Hazelwood has reunited with Wes McDougall, his former Super2 Series-winning engineer, to work as a driver coach.
Hazelwood, who last raced full-time in the main game with Blanchard Racing Team, won the 2017 Super2 crown.
McDougall engineered Hazelwood to the title at Matt Stone Racing, with the team stepping up to Supercars in 2018.
Last year, veteran engineer McDougall launched The Complete Race Driver, which initially began as an online resource. It came in a year he also engineered the Craig Lowndes/Zane Goddard Triple Eight wildcard at Sandown and Bathurst.
In an announcement from The Complete Race Driver, Hazelwood will work with McDougall "to provide a wide range of motorsport coaching and engineering services ranging from track day testing, to simulator training, to professional race meeting support, to video and data analysis and more.”
Hazelwood said: “It’s really cool to team up with my mate Wes McDougall once again.
“We have plenty of successful on-track history together and we’re both super excited to combine our knowledge and skills into a service for anyone to now access.
“I’m really looking forward to sharing my racing and motorsport knowledge with the next generation of our sport.
“It’ll be both exciting and satisfying to help progress skills and motorsport careers with The Complete Race Driver.
“We have created a very broad range of services available to ensure we can support any type of motorsport goal.”
McDougall added: “I am excited to once again be working with Todd, who will help bolster the capabilities of The Complete Race Driver.
“Our aim is to help drivers and teams from all walks of life to achieve their goals and administer motorsport coaching using data driven knowledge, experience, and clear communication.
“Todd is a studious, fast and professional driver who has driven a broad range of machinery and tasted a lot of success despite his young age.
“I look forward to being able to work with Todd and help all the drivers that we work with.”
Hazelwood has yet to confirm his 2024 plans, but has been linked to an Erebus Motorsport co-drive alongside Jack Le Brocq, as well as a tilt at Carrera Cup.
