Longhurst Racing


Longhurst Racing[1] was an Australian motor racing team that competed in the V8 Supercar series between 1995 and 1999.

History

At the end of 1994, Longhurst sold his share in Logamo, the team he had established in 1988 to Frank Gardner and Terry Morris. This was driven by Longhurst's desire to remain in the V8 Supercars series while his fellow shareholders wanted to compete in Super Touring.[2]

With the support of Castrol and Ford, Longhurst established a new team on the Gold Coast to race in the 1995 Australian Touring Car season, with a Ford Falcon EF. Longhurst finished in 11th place. He then teamed with Wayne Park to finish 4th at the Sandown 500 but the pair could only manage 9th at the Bathurst 1000.[3]

In 1996, the team expanded to two cars with the addition of a customer Falcon EL for Steven Ellery. Longhurst would again finish in 11th place. He then teamed with Ellery to again finish in 4th place at the Sandown 500. The pair then went on to finish 3rd at the Bathurst 1000.[4]

In 1997, the team again fielded two cars, but a mid-season split with Ellery saw the team return to a one car operation.[5] In 1998, Alan Jones joined the team, however it would be round 3 before he debuted while a new Ford Falcon EL was built.[6] In 1999, the team only ran a single car again, a Ford Falcon AU.[7]

At the end of 1999, Longhurst sold the team to Brad Jones Racing and moved to Stone Brothers Racing as an employed driver.[8]
