RSport Race Engineering’s Brett Hobson will cross over to the blue oval for the remainder of the season, debuting his new Ford this weekend at the Coates Hire Ipswich SuperSprint.
The 29-year-old began his 2015 V8 Supercars Dunlop Series campaign in a Holden, but after sustaining heavy chassis damage in an epic crash at the Clipsal 500, Hobson was forced to offload the Commodore post-Winton.
After the ex-Garry Rogers Motorsport Commodore sold, Hobson remained in Holden colours for Townsville, making a one-off appearance in an ex-Kelly Commodore.
But the Coates Hire Ipswich SuperSprint will see the Challenger pilot switch to the blue oval after inking a deal with Jim Pollicina to loan his Ford for the remainder of 2015.
“We were trying to put together [this deal] before Townsville, but due to time constraints, we just couldn’t get it together,” Hobson told v8supercars.com.au.
