Combining V8 Touring Car program with Manufacturers Championship

FORMER Kumho Tyre Australian V8 Touring Car Series runner-up Jim Pollicina is returning to the category for the 2015 season.

Pollicina has registered for the season in his ex-Jason Richards Tasman Motorsport Commodore VZ formerly raced by the late Kiwi in V8 Supercars in 2006.

Pollicina last raced in the category in 2013 and finished runner-up to Josh Hunter in 2012.

He has spent the last two seasons racing a Ford Performance Racing-built FG Falcon in the Dunlop Series for V8 Supercars.

The Sydney-based driver will combine his return to the Kumho Series this year with an assault on the Australian Manufacturers Championship in a newly constructed HSV VF model.

Both the Kumho Series and Manufactuers Championship for production cars are part of the popular Shannons Nationals calendar of racing categories and events.

The Kumho Tyre Australian V8 Touring Car Series will start at Sandown in Melbourne on March 28-29.
