The Dunlop Series front-runner has been officially given the call-up to the main squad for Sandown, Bathurst, and the Gold Coast, completing the team’s driver line-up with the already-confirmed David Wall.

The team says pairings are still to be determined, meaning Golding could partner either McLaughlin or Moffat.

“I do not think it matters who races with who at this stage and over the next few months both Bieber and David will be in and out of both #33 and #34 cars,” said team boss Garry Rogers.

“Both cars are identical in regards to build except for a slightly different seating position.

“David offers great experience considering the laps that he has not only done in a Supercar, but of course the 2015 season in the Volvo.

“Bieber is obviously young but he did a very creditable job in the 250-kilometre development series race at Bathurst last year and overall performed well in the 2015 Development Series and so far this season in the COTF chassis.

“He has certainly shown he has the ability to develop further. I have absolutely no concerns with a developing driver joining our squad where we believe both cars have the potential to win.

“Sure, Bathurst in particular can be very intimidating for an ‘up and comer’ but I have the upmost faith in Bieber.”

Golding will drive Moffat’s #34 car in the dedicated co-driver session at Winton tomorrow.
