Super2 debutant looks ahead to future 'full tilt' after Sandown debut
  • Cameron debuted at Sandown, finished sixth and 10th

  • Victorian will race in Bathurst and Adelaide

  • Cameron to complete Adelaide double duty as he fights for S5000 title

Aaron Cameron and Schramm Group Racing will return for the remaining 2023 Dunlop Series rounds ahead of a possible “full tilt” on the series in the future.

Cameron will race at the Repco Bathurst 1000 and VAILO Adelaide 500, having recently debuted at the Penrite Oil Sandown 500.

The Victorian enjoyed a strong Super2 debut, scoring finishes of sixth and 10th to place eighth for the weekend.

In the wake of the performance, Cameron and Schramm will return for Bathurst and Adelaide, with the driver also to complete double duty at the finale as he hopes to secure the S5000 Australian Drivers’ Championship.

“It’s pretty exciting. Heading to Sandown was just a one off and we’d just see how it goes, but I think everyone is pretty happy with what we’ve done in terms of the general results,” Cameron said.

"Bathurst is one of my stronger tracks, I really enjoy the way it all flows and I’ve had success there in any car I’ve been in. I think it’s more of a driver’s track and in the Supercar, it’s something I can have a proper crack in.

“Adelaide will be a bit of a challenge as I will be doing S5000 as well, but it’s all Supercars laps and experience, that’s all we’re trying to do this year. We want to get experience of how they race, gain knowledge of the car, so maybe in the future we can have a full tilt in the series.

“Dave Schramm has been instrumental in making this program happen and gave us the first go ahead, so once he was committed we could put together the rest of the sponsor line-up, which a lot have been loyal to me for a long time. I’m pretty excited to head into the future together.

Schramm, SCHRAMM Group Director, added: “To see Aaron at Bathurst, I’ve watched the race since I was young and I’ve never been, so going to the Mountain as well as having a race car there is going to be cool.

“Sandown was very satisfying and very successful. Aaron had a couple of good drives, kept his nose clean and steered well, so for his first round I think he’s done a terrific job.

“At Sandown, a lot of people said to me it was about time Aaron got a go and we’re just glad we were the ones who were able to help him.

“Continuing to support Aaron is exciting for us and we wish him luck at the final two rounds of the season.”

The Dunlop Series will be on track on the first three days of the Repco Bathurst 1000 on October 5-8.
