Team Dynamik has made three new appointments to its team line-up in a bid to achieve V8 Supercar success both on and off the track.

Former England test cricketer Ian Greig has joined the team as its new commercial director, in a bid to enhance the off-track profile of the outfit, while ex-Dick Johnson Racing engine troubleshooter Peter Wallace has recruited powerplant guru Steve Dewhurst to the team's engine shop to consolidate and refine Dynamik's quest for a podium position in 2005.

Greig, who played two test matches for England in 1982, has an extensive background in high-level sport and management having developed a sports marketing career in the UK when his playing days came to an end.

He moved to Brisbane in 1993, developing commercial sponsorship opportunities for national sporting teams, before moving over to the Gold Coast Motor Events Corporation in 1997. He was an important part of Indy's commercial sponsorship and corporate development, and also worked on enhancing the sponsorship profile of the Queensland Rugby Union, until making the move to Team Dynamik this year.

"A wonderful opportunity presented itself with Team Dynamik," he said. "I will be developing Team Dynamik's commercial opportunities, putting it into a position to succeed off - and on - the track."

In the team's Brisbane engine shop, two-man team Peter Wallace and Steve Dewhurst are also plotting a path to the podium.

Wallace was with DJR for the past two years, troubleshooting reliability and performance issues with the Ford powerplants. Stints with Steve Ellery Racing (2002) and Paul Weel Racing (2001) fill out an impressive Supercar pedigree.

Meanwhile Dewhurst has rejoined the Supercar scene after nearly ten years in the aviation industry. He was instrumental in developing the Mitre10 V8 for Larkham Motorsport in 1995, and spent six years in the UK on early versions of the Brian Hart/Cosworth F1 turbo in the early 1980s.
