Team owner to step in for foreseeable future

Matt Cook has departed his role as Nulon Racing Team Principal, the team has confirmed.

A team spokesperson confirmed to Supercars.com that Cook, who joined in mid-2022, won’t return to the team.

Team owner Peter Xiberras will step into the Team Principal role for the foreseeable future.

The news comes on the eve of this weekend’s sixth round of the 2023 season, the NTI Townsville 500.

Cook joined the team, which debuted in Supercars in 2022, from Triple Eight midway through last season.

Prior to joining the team, Cook was a long-time part of the Triple Eight family, and headed up its Super2 program.

Slade and Golding are 13th and 14th in the standings

He also acted as a lead mechanic on Shane van Gisbergen's #97 Holden Commodore Supercar.


Under Cook’s leadership, the team became a regular top 10 contender after James Golding arrived mid-season.

The team also moved into a new Arundel base late in 2022 on the Gold Coast.

Nulon Racing is the only Triple Eight customer team on the 2023 grid, taking two turnkey Gen3 Camaros.

Golding was joined by Tim Slade for the 2023 season, with Nulon Racing bursting out of the blocks in Newcastle.

Slade and Golding are 13th and 14th in the standings heading to the NTI Townsville 500.

The two drivers have 10 top 10 finishes between them this season — seven for Slade, and three for Golding.

Supercars will hit the track in Townsville at 10:10am AEST on Friday for Practice 1.
