Dragon withdraws both cars from Bathurst 1000

Dragon has pulled both of its two wildcard entries from the great race.

Dragon Racing and Super Black were set to enter a total of three wildcard entries into the Bathurst 1000. Dragon, which had planned for a two-car effort, has now pulled out of the race.

They were to run two Holden Commodores, cars previously owned by Garry Rogers Motorsport. Team owner Tony Klein revealed that there was a serious concern regarding lack of experience as their reason behind backing out, but some speculate that there was a financial aspect behind this decision as well.

They also will not compete in the remainder of the 2014 Dunlop Series season (Secondary division to V8SC). However, the squad plans to return for a full-time time effort in the Dunlop Series come 2015. Kristian Lindbom was their only confirmed driver when the plans came apart.

This now leaves Super Black as the only additional team for the race, putting the field at 26 cars and making it the smallest Bathurst 1000 grid since 1961.
