DJR Team Penske has announced that Fabian Coulthard, one of the top drivers competing in the V8 Supercars Championship, will join DJR Team Penske for the 2016 season in a second entry for the team.
The 33-year-old Coulthard, who made his debut in the V8 Supercars Championship at Oran Park in 2004, has established himself as one of the most productive drivers on the circuit with victories in each of the last three seasons, achieving five wins, six poles and 29 podium finishes since 2013. DJR Team Penske also announced that Scott Pye will return to race the No. 17 Ford Falcon in 2016.
“Expanding to two cars has always been a priority of ours, and with Fabian on board, gives us the opportunity to add another car capable of running at the front,” said Tim Cindric, Team Penske President.
Coulthard is currently ranked fifth in the V8 Supercars Championship standings.
“I’m excited about 2016 and coming aboard at DJR Team Penske,” said Coulthard. “The chance to race for two motorsport legends like Dick Johnson and Roger Penske is just a special opportunity. I’m looking forward to next season and helping the team grow and race at the front of the field.”
