New iSport team to run Storey in full 2013 BNT V8ST campaign

New iSport team to run Storey in full 2013 BNT V8ST campaign

Single seater ace Dominic Storey has confirmed that he will run the full season of the 2013 BNT V8 SuperTourer series for a brand new team – iSport.

Storey clocked up some mileage in V8 SuperTourers first season with John McIntyre Racing’s second Ford Falcon V8ST and it is this car which iSport has purchased for its 2013 campaign.

Twenty three year old Storey is a former winner of the Formula BMW Scholarship in 2006 with seven podium finishes and since then has impressed with two second place finishes in the New Zealand GP in TRS machinery, and with some stand-out drives in British Formula 3, Formula Renault Europe and in the bigger GP3 and Formula Renault 3.5 machinery.

The Auckland-based team will run the full programme of 2013 event, which starts in a little over two weeks when the first round of the 2013 BNT V8 SuperTourer series blasts off at the Hampton Downs circuit in the North Waikato.

Storey says the iSport team is working flat out to ready the car and the team for the first round, and admits they will need to hit the ground running. Even so, the young ace is optimistic of a strong showing as he and the crew find their feet.

"This has all happened so quickly, iSport was created two weeks ago and we are only two weeks from the first race now, but there’s no question we are on track.

“I am really looking forward to my first full season of V8ST, it's going to be tough but I will give it everything. It’s going to be exciting running our own team and a steep learning curve but it will be a great moment for everyone involved to see the car sitting on the grid for the first race of the season."
