#15 Altima unveiled at Gnoo Blas, the site of first ATCC race
Super3 debutant Cody Burcher has uncovered his new-look Supercar at a special site entrenched in Supercars history.
Burcher, a native of Orange in central western New South Wales, will make his Dunlop Series debut this year.
The Toyota 86 graduate will steer a MW Motorsport-run Nissan Altima, with his debut coming at next weekend’s Thrifty Bathurst 500.
Burcher revealed his Altima, with major backing from civil and construction company AWCON, at the 25th anniversary Gnoo Blas Classic.
Gnoo Blas is the site of the inaugural Australian Touring Car Championship race in 1960. For the record, the race was won by David McKay in a Jaguar.
Burcher’s #15 Nissan will also carry backing from Westlime Parkes & Canowindra, SD Graphix, Thrive Advice and Racer Industries.
“The move into the Dunlop Series in Super3 with MW Motorsport is an exciting step for my career,” Burcher said at the time of his signing.
“To carry the relationship with AWCON and all my supporters into Super3 with MW Motorsport is something I am very excited about. I am looking forward to learning from the MW Motorsport team’s huge level of knowledge.
“To win at Bathurst, on Sunday at my home track, was a real highlight of 2023 but I’m now fully focused on moving into Super3 for this season.
“Being from Orange, I’ve been going to Mount Panorama and the Bathurst 1000 since I was a little kid, so to be stepping into a Supercar this season is very cool.”
The young driver is part of a new-look Dunlop Series field in 2024, led by a bumper Super2 grid that features reigning champion Kai Allen.
Allen and Burcher were joined on track by several Dunlop Series drivers in pre-season testing last week at Winton Motor Raceway and Queensland Raceway.
Tickets for the Thrifty Bathurst 500, on February 23-25, are on sale now.
