1 Mins read

Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport has confirmed IZOD IndyCar Series driver Mike Conway has signed with Team iSelect for the Armor All Gold Coast 600.

Conway will make his V8 Supercars debut alongside Taz Douglas for the two 300-kilometre races at Surfers Paradise and the Englander becomes the seventh current IndyCar driver to sign up for the event in October.

Conway has tasted success on many of the world’s great street tracks, winning the Macau Grand Prix, IndyCar’s Long Beach Grand Prix and a GP2 race at Monaco, but this will be his first time on the Australian street circuit and in a V8 Supercar.

“I’m very excited to be racing for Lucas Dumbrell at Surfers this year and want to thank them for the opportunity,” said Conway.

“It will be my first time driving a car like that so I can’t wait to get behind the wheel in October!”

The Armor All Gold Coast 600 will be held on 19 – 21 October.
