SYDNEY TEAM FOR V8 SUPER CAR CHAMPIONSHIP


Walden Motorsport Pty Ltd has purchased a majority share holding in Romano Racing Pty Ltd & will be moving the operation to western Sydney so that Sydney once again will have a team in the V8 Supercar Championship Series to call there own.

The deal between Romano & Walden was completed on Friday the 22nd of December for the main game, & now all they are waiting on is for TEGA to rubber stamp the deal when they convene in January.

Walden Motorsport competed in selected rounds of the 2004 V8 Supercar Championship, with Garth Walden putting in some fine performances in an outdated AU Ford Falcon.

Since the 2004 season, Walden had made a name for himself as an engineer, working with Aaron Carati in 2005 when the West Australian won the CAMS Australian Drivers Gold Star Championship.

The only other team in recent times to run in the main game, was Tasman Motorsport ex Lansvale Smash Repairs, but they relocated to Melbourne.

Team spokesperson Brian Walden, said they (team) were thrilled to be back.

"Its all pretty exciting really. While in Brisbane yesterday we also organised a car from a strong team, and we'll be making an announcement in January on that, plus the make-up of the team, as well as our major naming rights sponsor. We'll continue to run the team out of our own workshop in Sydney's west near Silverdale," Brian Walden said.

"We want the people of Sydney to get behind us next year, and call it there car, because we are very proud to live in the worlds best city," he said.
