Garry's Race Report: Sydney 500

The final round in what has been one of my most enjoyable seasons in the 53 that I have been a part of. Sure, the year from our point of view has been challenging off the track, but I am so proud of all the boys and girls at GRM with the manner in which they have attacked the work required to see us have what I see as a very, very good season. Read More

Gold Coast 600: Garry's Race Report

We were really keen to get back racing after the manner in which Bathurst finished and the team were really keen to earn a result that we thought worthy of the effort that all had put in over the Endurance Cup part of the season, but also with the car speed that we had been showing.  Read More

Driving in to Sandown Raceway and the memories of my early days of racing always come flooding back, but in the cut and thrust climate of Supercar racing there is very little time for reminiscing. Read More

SMSP SuperSprint : Race Report

Following four weekends to catch up on the jobs around home we were back at it with Races 18 and 19 of the Championship and the final sprint round before the three all important Endurance races.

But all was in good hands and thankfully for my ever improving ability with texting and the internet I wasn’t too far away.  Read More

Race Report: Ipswich SuperSprint

They say that time flies when you are having fun. Well, I must be having a great time!

Race Report: Darwin Triple Crown 

The Darwin event is my favourite Super Sprint event on the calendar. The atmosphere in Darwin is tremendous and the local community led by the Northern Territory Government really get behind the event. Also, heading to the top end from Melbourne in June is certainly a great improvement weather wise and you can be assured that it will be 33 deg every day.   Read More

   
 

Darwin Triple Crown: Friday Practice

A great start to the Darwin Triple Crown with both cars finishing inside the top 7 after two 60 minute practice sessions. Scott McLaughlin ended the day 4th and James Moffat 7th.

Winton SuperSprint: Race Report

I know in my reports I often refer to Joey our transporter driver and again I can’t help myself. Joey is a most valued member of my team and at the risk of sounding biased Joe is the most organised, fastidious and caring truck driver in pit lane. To highlight my point Joey spends as much time on the “weather app” as he does caring for his Volvo Globetrotter FH16 700.  Read More

   
 

Winton SuperSprint: Saturday

Scott McLaughlin claimed 2nd place and the championship lead after race 10 at Winton.

Garry's Race Report: Perth 

A very emotional weekend for all the team at GRM. I don’t want to harp on negatives as we still have a long season ahead and to date our performances have been very, very good. But, I do want to address the decision by Polestar in Sweden (who control Volvo Motorsport worldwide) only to say that I am extremely disappointed by their statement last week saying that they will not extend their commitment to Supercars past this current season. Read More

   
 

Perth SuperSprint

Great days racing in Perth with Scott McLaughlin finishing 2nd after a intense battle for the lead in the final 2 laps. James Moffat home in 17th. Hear from Scott McLaughlin after today’s racing View Video

It’s obvious but I will say it – I love Motor Racing. The Grand Prix has always been a love/hate type event for me and without been too presumptuous other V8 Teams may well have the same feeling.  Read More

Clipsal 500 Saturday
