Third-generation racer Aaron Seton will make his main-game Supercars debut as endurance co-driver to Jack Le Brocq with Matt Stone Racing at the Repco Bathurst 1000.
Seton, who races for Matt Stone Racing in the Dunlop Super2 Series, follows in the footsteps of grandfather Barry and father Glenn to feature in the Great Race, making them the first family to have three generations start in the Bathurst 500/1000.
It will be the first Bathurst since 2010 to feature a Seton, with Barry winning the Bathurst 500 in 1965 and Glenn a two-time championship winner with four Bathurst podiums.
“I am very thankful to the team, from Matt, Jason [Gomersall], and the whole crew,” said Seton.
“I’m just looking forward to getting to the 1000. It’s awesome to be joining a guy like Jack and I really admire the way he has gone about his racing this year since working closer with him.”
Seton will complete double duties in Bathurst, with his co-drive in the main event alongside his Super2 duties.
“It’s great that Aaron’s actually running in the Dunlop Series as well over the Bathurst weekend,” said Le Brocq.
“I’ve done it many times before when I was a co-driver and it’s really crucial to just get those laps in around there. It’s a very daunting place at the best of times and it will be very full on.
“For Aaron to be able to compliment his running with his Dunlop Series program will allow us to get the most out of him come Sunday.”
The team is yet to announce Todd Hazelwood’s co-driver for the Repco Bathurst 1000.
