Nash Morris will make his debut in one-make Porsche racing at Sydney Motorsport Park in Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge for race winning team TekworkX Motorsport.
Morris, the son of 2014 Bathurst 1000 winner Paul Morris, will drive a third Pro class entry for the Gold Coast based team who have already won multiple races across both Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup and Sprint Challenge in 2023.
Lining up alongside Aron Shields and Hamish Fitzsimmons, Morris will contest the third round of the Championship as part of the Beaurepaires Sydney SuperNight.
The 2021 Dunlop Super3 Series winner has made a habit out of driving a wide variety of vehicles as the 20-year-old forges his racing career.
Alongside his 2022 and 2023 Dunlop Super2 campaigns, Morris has enjoyed race-winning starts in the TA2 Muscle Car Series, Trans Am Australia and GT4 Australia.
His start in Sprint Challenge will mark Morris’ fifth category in which he’s featured so far in 2023.
Round three of Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge takes place at Sydney Motorsport Park from July 28-30, with Morris lining up alongside Shields and Fitzsimmons for TekworkX Motorsport.
Nash Morris, Driver, #67
“The Porsche is a very cool car, it’s a fast car around a fast track which is more good mileage for me,” said Morris.
“We had a good test in Sydney, which a lot of the teams were at. It’s a great track for these cars, with some high-speed corners that work well with the downforce and grip you get from the tyre in the Porsche.
“I’ve known Rob and the team for a while, they’ve been very involved at Norwell. It’s cool that I have got the opportunity to drive one of his cars now. A lot of the team’s drivers in Toyota 86 and Porsche have done some training with the Norwell team.
“We’re just looking to do the best we can during the weekend. The category is full of top-level drivers, so you can’t take a mindset that you expect to go out and win. We’ll see what the result is at the end of it,” concluded Morris.
Rob Woods, Team Owner
“We are thrilled to have Nash racing for us in Sydney, he’s an extremely talented driver who we’ve had a relationship with for a while now,” said Woods.
“Nash and Paul have been great supporters through Norwell Motorplex, providing training and support to our drivers between rounds, which is how our relationship with him has grown. We’re excited to see how Nash goes in Sydney, as we know he’s fast in everything he drives.
“Having Nash in the team will also be great for our full-time drivers Aron and Hamish, who can hopefully benefit from the experience Nash brings behind the wheel,” concluded Woods.
