Queensland’s Jack Sipp is Erebus Academy’s newest recruit, excited to be joining the squad in the Kumho Tyre V8 Touring Car Series when racing returns.
The 25-year old has signed on to race with the team’s affiliate Image Racing for his second year in the category, having previously raced for Paul Morris Motorsport.
Sipp has plenty of experience in various categories including Formula Ford, the Queensland Gemini Series, Formula 4, Australian Rally Cross and most recently Touring Cars.
“I’m really excited to be part of such a big name in the sport, I finally get the chance I’ve been working so hard for,” Sipp said.
Having financed most of his career himself, Sipp has struggled to fund a full competitive championship season.
However, with the support of the Erebus Academy and Image Racing, Sipp is looking to maximize his opportunity and explore his full potential as a driver.
“I’m looking forward to driving a competitive car and I’m really excited to show everyone what I can do.
“I’ve put in the work and now I’m going to get results.”
Whilst the season has been temporarily put on hold, Erebus Motorsport’s CEO Barry Ryan says he is looking forward to seeing Sipp progress as a driver.
“Jack had a test earlier in the year and shows a lot of potential and I think with our support he will be able to progress into the driver we know he can become,” Ryan said.
“We’re looking forward to helping him reach his goals and give him the tools he needs to succeed.”
Though there is no word on when the V8 Touring Car calendar will resume, the team hope to see Sipp beginning his journey with the Erebus Academy and Image Racing sooner rather than later.
