A reinvigorated Russell Ingall made a spectacular entry to reveal his new 2012 Supercheap Cheap Auto Racing livery.

The veteran of 16 full-time seasons launched his new car by crashing through the garage doors and onto pit lane at Sandown Raceway to signal the beginning of the 'Russell Ingall Re-Enforcement Tour 2012'.

“I can't tell you how excited I am about this opportunity,” Ingall said of his move to Walkinshaw Racing after four seasons with Paul Morris Motorsport.

“I've been jumping out of my skin over the off-season waiting to go racing again,” Ingall continued.

“Walkinshaw Racing is the home of the Holden Racing Team, so this is the first time in my career that I've raced for a factory outfit and have been able to draw on so much depth of experience and talent.

“I've raced for some great teams, but it's eye-opening at just how professional an organisation like this is – now I know why it's won eight championships and nine Bathurst 1000s!

“It's got me fired up. I've been training my guts out, I'm fitter than ever and I just can't wait for Clipsal – the Enforcer is back!”

Ingall is confident that with the addition of former Formula One engineer Steve Hallam as Walkinshaw Racing’s new Managing Director together with racing operations manager Mike Henry, team manager Erik Pender and engineer Rob Starr he has the best team behind him to make a return to the top-end of the grid.

“To be able to win races in a series as competitive and tough as V8 Supercars requires quality people and Supercheap Auto Racing can rightfully say it has the very best,” Ingall said.

“Their passion for racing and commitment to winning races is second to none and they're tough as nails – I couldn't hope for better re-enforcements.”
