Former Bathurst Champion Jason Bargwanna recently confirmed his long-term commitment to Larkham Motor Sport when he signed a long-term contract with the team.

The agreement between the two parties means that Bargwanna could be a part of the Gold Coast team for up to five years.

Bargwanna who has six years of full time V8 Supercar competition under his belt is looking forward to growing and developing with the team as it aims to become a power force in the Championship for years to come.

"I think the team showed some promising signs with the new BA and now with the new car under construction it is looking like a promising year in 2004 and beyond," said Bargwanna.

"Mark Larkham goes racing the way I like to go racing and he has built the Larkham Motor Sport team on these very principles.

"When I joined the team I had a long-term plan in my mind and with the values that Mark has built the team around I have no doubt we will be successful for many years to come."

"I believe that success in this business is made a lot on having the right people in the team for the long-term and that is why we have made the commitment that we have.

Team owner Mark Larkham is delighted to have Bargwanna as a part of the Larkham Motor Sport team for the long-term.

"The fashion in which Bargs has delivered the three top 5 results over the last three events demonstrates 'the completeness' I think he has achieved as a driver. That, coupled to his speed, assertiveness and commitment as a race driver give me confidence that Bargs will very much be a key component of this team moving forward, " said Larkham.

"This team is very competitive and tenacious in spirit, and passionate about what we do as a team. Bargs shares those same core values that drive Larkham Motor Sport--by nature that makes him a good long term fit"

The signing of Bargwanna allows the Larkham Motor Sport team a leading driver who posseses a wealth of experience. This experience of Bargwanna's now becomes pivotal for the team with the recent signing of Mark Winterbottom for at least the next two years.
