Dean will rejoin Trofeo Motorsport for the first round of the Australian GT Championship at the Clipsal 500.
After a successful campaign at the Bathurst 12 Hour, finishing 3rd in their class, Dean will rejoin team owner Jim Manolios in his Lamborghini Huracan. Dean replaces regular driver, Ryan Millier, who will be sitting by his wife’s side as they await the birth of their second child.
Dean: “I’m really looking forward to racing at Clipsal. Adelaide is my home so to be sitting on the sidelines at Clipsal is always a tough one. Up until last week, that’s what I was going to be doing. So when Jim asked me to fill in for Rhino (Millier), there was no hesitation. I’ve worked with a lot of the Trofeo crew before at previous race teams so I feel at home there.”
The Clipsal 500 will run in the streets of Adelaide from March 2nd – 5th.
