Marcos Ambrose will make his return to the Australian V8 Supercars championship with Dick Johnson Racing and Team Penske next year, and he’ll have a cameo starting with the season finale in December.
Ambrose’s run at the Sydney NRMA 500 V8 Supercars event will see his No. 66 Ford Falcon FG adorned in new Xbox Racing colors. Xbox assumes the role of official “wild card” entry partner.
“The whole package has come together perfectly,” Ambrose said in a release. “I have been eager to get back in the V8 Supercar and I’m a gamer myself, so to head to Sydney with Xbox as our major partner is a fantastic outcome. Today is the first time the Xbox / DJR team have been together, so no doubt we will work really hard over the next week and arrive in Sydney ready to go.”
He only arrived back in Australia from the final NASCAR race at Homestead this past weekend a mere 48 hours before the launch.
He’s tested a car as well at Lakeside Park. Via Speedcafe, here’s a clip of that.
