Halliday joins FPR for enduros


Kiwi allrounder has added the two Australian V8 Supercar endurance races to his 2007 international racing programme.

March 31, 2007, 1.30pm. A1GP driver Matt Halliday says he’s looking forward to returning to the Australian V8 Supercar series with Ford Performance Racing (FPR).

The Ford team announced today that Halliday will rejoin its squad for the endurance races at Sandown and Bathurst in September and October.

Halliday co-drove the #5 FPR Falcon during the 2006 endurance races, finishing 15th at Sandown with Cameron McLean. He drove with David Brabham at Bathurst.

"It's great to be rejoining FPR which is one of the most professional teams I’ve driven with,” Halliday says.

“After two good races and getting to know the team well in 2006, I'm looking forward to contributing to major results in the major Sandown and Bathurst endurance races later this year."

FPR says Halliday's speed and versatility make him a strong addition to its enduro line-up.

"Matt Halliday is a highly talented driver who we feel has yet to reach his full potential in V8 Supercars,” says FPR’s Tim Edwards.

“He has now gained significant experience at Sandown and Bathurst and we're sure that he'll make a significant contribution to our 2007 endurance race effort.”
