Jason Leoncini steps up from Super Six Touring Cars with THR Developments

ADELAIDE-based THR Developments will return to the Kumho Tyre Australian V8 Touring Car Series this season.

The squad has previously campaigned multiple cars in the series for ex-V8 Supercars, though withdrew after last year’s opening round at Mallala.

2014 Super Six Touring Car Division Two Champion Jason Leoncini has signed with the team to drive its #45 Commodore VZ in the V8 Touring Car category.

The Team Dynamik-built car was raced by the late Jason Richards in 2003 in the V8 Supercars Championship and was previously raced in the Kumho Series by now-Development Series racer Josh Kean.

KUMHO TYRES AUSTRALIAN V8 TOURING CAR SERIES - This touring car category gives the perfect place for ex-V8 Supercars to continue their long and successful lives after they finish in the V8 Supercars Championship and Development Series.


Run to the same technical platform, the category is ideal for young drivers wanting a taste of V8s or veterans and businessmen racers with the passion for these cars, many of which are run in the same colours as carried by some of the biggest stars in V8 Supercar racing.

Every car in the field has significant history and, with a strong TV package and increasing numbers since its inception in 2008, the V8 Touring Car category is continuing to grow and gain momentum.
