Di Grassi added to Surfers line-up

Lucas di Grassi to race at the Gold Coast 600
Pirelli test driver Lucas di Grassi has become the latest big name to be added to the line-up for the V8 Supercar event at Surfers Paradise.

The Brazilian will join the TEKNO Autosports team for the ARMOR ALL Gold Coast 600 and will join Michael Patrizi at the wheel of the #91 Holden Commodore.

Sportscar star Marc Lieb meanwhile will join Jonathon Webb in the team's #19 entry.

Di Grassi's deal - which comes on the back of a podium finish at Interlagos during a one-off deal with Audi in the World Endurance Championship – will see the former Virgin Racing man working alongside TEKNO team manager Bruce Jenkins, who he also worked with while in British F3.

“It is great to have such a formidable line up for our second venture in the GC600,” Jenkins said. “Both Marc and Lucas bring a wealth of knowledge, technical skills and experience to Tekno's endurance team.

“Marc's performance on track last year was impressive; Jonathon and Marc will be one of the pairs to watch.

“Lucas's background, demonstrated by his formidable result this past weekend for Audi in Brazil, will guarantee car 91 will be competitive.”
