Tomas Mezera, 1988 Bathurst winner and 1985 Formula Ford Champion, is a late inclusion for Mike Imrie's V8 Supercar for Indy and the remainder of the 2001 Shell Championship Series.

Fresh from a Bathurst stint with HRT, Tomas is in top form and not fazed by the prospect of steering the Delta Europcar VX Commodore around the dampened streets of Surfers Paradise.

"Five years racing in Europe prepares you for the worst racing conditions," said Tomas while surveying the inclement weather, "Keeping the speed up and the car off the wall is what it's all about here (at Surfers)."

Tomas drove for IMS at Calder and Oran Park, showing he was a considerable asset to the team, reinforcing the team's excellent 2001 finishing record.

"We're lucky to get Tomas back on board at such short notice, said team owner, Mike Imrie, "His considerable experience at the top of touring car racing can only enhance our on-going expansion."
