Casey Stoner tipped to quit V8 Supercars

Australian media are reporting that double MotoGP world champion Casey Stoner will call an end to his brief V8 Supercar career at the end of this year.

After retiring from MotoGP at the end of last season, at the age of just 27, Stoner switched to four-wheels by signing up for the V8 support class in his native Australia.

But Stoner has now decided he would like a break from full-time competition next year. Stoner is currently 18th in the Dunlop Development series, where he drives a Triple Eight Holden.

Ducati's only world champion, before claiming a second crown with Honda, is currently halfway through a series of four private test sessions for Honda, to help develop next year's MotoGP machines.
