Irwin Commits To V8 Supercars For Two Years

29-year-old Marshall has raced with Champcars, A1 Grand Prix, Carerra Cup, Formula 3, Formula Ford and – most importantly – he has 21 V8 Supercars starts under his belt.

Britek Motorsport Managing Director Jason Bright believes Marshall will be a great asset to the Irwin Racing team. “The ingredients are all starting to take shape,” he said.

“We have the outstanding commitment from Irwin Industrial Tools as well as a driver I believe will shine at the team. Marcus has vast experience at still a young age and that will be a bonus to the Irwin Racing team.”

Nick Pritchard, Managing Director of Irwin Industrial Tools, is also looking forward to Irwin’s second year in the V8 Supercar Championship Series.

“Racing is a great fit for the Irwin brand and we plan to fully exploit that in 2008,” he said.

“We are very excited about the season ahead. On-track we will have a great new look, a great new driver with Marcus, and off-track we are going to run a range of promotional campaigns to support the sponsorship.”

Irwin Racing with Marcus Marshall at the wheel takes to the track at the opening round, the Clipsal 500, in Adelaide from February 21-24.
