Dick Johnson Racing has announced that Malcolm Swetnam has resigned as team manager, effective immediately.

The Englishman joined the team in 2011 to manage the organisation and has been integral to DJR's expansion to a four-car line-up.

The team has released the following statement citing family reasons for his departure:

“Dick Johnson Racing today announced the resignation and departure of Team Manager, Malcolm Swetnam, effective immediately.

Swetnam moved to Australia at the start of the 2011 Season, leaving his wife and three children behind in England.

Dick Johnson Racing understand how difficult it has been for Malcolm to be away from home and his family.  The Team appreciate him staying to help manage the four-car merger and the first few rounds of the season.  The Team understand Malcolm's desire to return home to his family as soon as he is able.

Dick Johnson Racing wish Malcolm the very best of luck with his return to the UK and thank him for his dedication and passion to the Team throughout the last year.

Dick Johnson and the DJR Board will be reviewing the team management structure and personnel in the next day, with an aim to have the new structure in place and settled well before the Team depart for the third round of the 2012 International V8 Supercars Season in New Zealand in two weeks' time.”
