In more positive news for the Australian Formula 3 Premier Series, Wilson Team Racing has announced it will be competing in the National Class in season 2017.
Following two years and two victories for the Kumho Cup title in the Wiltec Industries sponsored #13 Dallara F304, the owner/driver team is to use its new #27 Spiess powered F307 this year.

Driver Shane Wilson is excited regarding his prospects in the new chassis.

“We ran the car for the last round of the 2016 Championship and also completed a shakedown run at the recent Summer Open Wheel Festival at Wakefield Park.

Feedback was very positive and we found the ‘07 car a much easier package to drive and it responded to the smallest of chassis tweaks.

These factors, combined with the extra grip that will be made available on the Hankook tyres for 2017 has us primed and ready for a good season’.

The Queenslander has a long history in motor sport having competed since the age of nine in motocross and road racing, and was the ‘92 250cc International Australian Superkart Champion.
Wilson runs his compact team with the assistance of long time bike racing associate Steve Phillips and Marcello Surace who is responsible for data acquisition and analysis.
