Volvo Polestar Racing has announced David Wall will join its line up for next year’s V8 Supercars Championship.
Wall will drive the #34 Wilson Security backed S60, replacing the outgoing Robert Dahlgren at the factory-backed Volvo team, who returns to his native Sweden at the end of this season.
2015 marks Wall’s fourth full year in V8 Supercars, following two seasons with Brad Jones Racing (2012 and 2013) and with Dick Johnson Racing in 2014.
Current Dick Johnson Racing sponsors, Wilson Security and Payce Consolidated, both long-term backers of Wall, will also make the move across to Volvo with the 31-year-old.
“I cannot begin to tell you how eager I am to join Volvo Polestar Racing for the 2015 V8 Supercars season,” said Wall.
“I am really impressed with how they came out of the box this year in what was a stellar debut season for the team.
“I feel that this is a massive opportunity and I hope to be able to add to the results the team and my new team-mate, Scott McLaughlin, have achieved in 2014. Bring on the test day at Sydney Motorsport Park.”
Looking to capitalise on an outstanding debut season which has seen four race wins by Scott McLaughlin, GRM owner Garry Rogers believes the S60 will enable Wall to show his true ability.
“I spent some time racing alongside David’s dad, Des,” said Rogers.
“If David shows the same tenacity and determination his father exhibited I’m sure he will have success at GRM.
“Obviously it’s a challenge for David and our team, but I take notice of all drivers in the V8 Supercars Championship and David has shown ability.
“I am confident we will provide him with a car that will enable him to illustrate his potential.”
