CoolDrive call up for Marjoram
Adam Marjoram has received the call up from Tim Blanchard and Team CoolDrive for this weekends' additional driver session at Winton Motor Raceway.

With Tim's confirmed co-driver Dale Wood unable to attend the event, the team decided to give the Super2 star the opportunity to get his first taste of the ZB Supercar.

Tim Blanchard said "Dale wasn't available to drive the car this weekend as he had locked in a drive opportunity at Phillip Island before taking on the co-driver role with us. He's spending enough time behind the wheel so when he does hop on board the Team CoolDrive Supercar, he'll be up to speed in no time."

"With the session available for another driver to partake in, we thought it would be a great opportunity to give one of the Super2 drivers a chance to do some laps, so we've got Adam Marjoram joining us for the weekend. I've known Adam for a few years now and he's a talent behind the wheel."

"Adam has got quite a bit of experience, from the V8 Ute series and Dunlop Series so it's pretty exciting to give him an opportunity to get behind the wheel of my Supercar and see what he thinks."

"It will be good to get some feedback from someone outside the team, he'll have a fresh take on everything, so I'm interested to see what he thinks."

Adam Marjoram added "When Tim gave me the phone call I was a little shell shocked! I am very excited to have the opportunity to drive the Team CoolDrive Supercar at Winton and see what the difference in between my current Image Racing VF Commodore and the CoolDrive ZB Commodore."

"It'll be an exciting challenge being my first main game session; as I will be one of the only ones to have never driven in a Supercars session before. I am looking forward to learning and understanding the environment and what would be needed of me in the main series. Tim and BJR are providing me with a great learning opportunity."

"It's been a whirlwind week for me to get my SuperLicense; Brad Jones and CAMS have helped guide me and I am very appreciative for that."

"The start of our 2018 season has been tough year with our share of bad luck. We've had top 5-10 pace in the Auto One/Image Racing Commodore in the Super2 Series but haven't got the desired results on the board. The potential is there so it's nice to see that recognized with this fantastic opportunity."

The half-hour additional driver session is the first Supercars on-track session of the weekend, getting underway at 10:05am Friday.
