Triple Supercars champion Scott McLaughlin is looking to expand his racing repertoire beyond IndyCar open-wheelers.
Back in Australia for the first time in two years, McLaughlin will be a star guest at next month’s returning Adelaide 500.
He excelled in IndyCar this year, winning races and contending for the title.
In the latest PARKED UP PLUS podcast, McLaughlin exclusively reveals his plan to augment his 2023 IndyCar title assault with racing in other high-profile American events.
The Australian-raised New Zealander is holidaying here following his breakout second season with Team Penske in IndyCar.
McLaughlin will be a special commentator during the Adelaide 500 telecast as well as his role as a ‘Fanbassador’, mixing with spectators over the December 1-4 race weekend.
Along with confirming that his plans to contest American long distance sportscar classics like the Daytona 24 Hours and Sebring 12 Hours, he tells PARKED UP PLUS why he is looking forward to his cameo appearance in Adelaide.
The popular podcast also reviews the action-packed Bathurst International, which saw leading Supercars co-driver Tony D’Alberto crowned as TCR Australia champion.
Bathurst’s key role in next year’s TCR World Tour is explained by the turbocharged two-litre touring car category’s global boss Marcello Lotti.
He confirms there will be two rounds in Australia, with four candidates to precede the Mount Panorama TCR World Tour round next November.
PARKED UP PLUS also hears from Trans Am and S5000 star Nathan Herne on why he feels snubbed by Supercars.
All this and more in the latest episode of PARKED UP PLUS, hosted by award-winning motor sport news-breaker Mark Fogarty.
