LONGHURST ACQUIRES SECOND TEAM LICENCE

Veteran racer Tony Longhurst today announced he has purchased the second level 1 team licence from Kieran Wills of Team Dynamik, with TEGA's approval of the multi million-dollar acquisition.

Longhurst purchased the initial level 1 licence from the team in March of this year and has been campaigning the WOW Sight & Sound Holden Commodore car #45 with Brazilian driver Max Wilson at the helm this season.

Longhurst said "I plan a complete restructure of the now two-car team with a possible re location of the teams headquarters likely at the end of the season".

"There is a lot for the team to accomplish before the end of the season, including finalising major sponsor partners for the 2006 season and beyond, however I know we can accomplish everything in the given time frame".

"We plan on building two new race cars for next season, and I'm confident they will be very competitive cars indeed"

"With encouragement from the directors of our teams current major sponsor WOW Sight & Sound, I will now be partnering Max Wilson in car # 45 at this year's Bathurst 1000 round next month, this will represent the last competitive race of my career".

"In what seems to have been a lifetime involved in the sport, I know I can impart a considerable amount of knowledge and direction to the team, whilst preparing two very competitive front running race cars for the 2006 series".

"I have achieved some great results for both my team and sponsors during my long career as a driver and team owner and I now want to carry this forward with the new team" - said Longhurst.

"I am looking forward to this challenge with great enthusiasm and linking up with a sponsor partner that will benefit significantly from the new two- car teams presence on the starting grid next year" - Longhurst concluded.
