MOTORSPORT BASED CLIENTS
David Russell is a highly versatile and talented racing driver who has made his name through his championship winning efforts in production cars, progressing to become a multiple race winner in the Porsche Carrera Cup Championship. Russell has competed strongly in the V8 Supercar Development Series and is now a V8 Supercar endurance race specialist, while also forging a strong career as a front-running international GT Sportscar racer, having raced to Class victories and outright podiums in all Bathurst sportscar endurance race formats, along with two V8 Supercar Development Series pole positions and victories at the iconic circuit, second overall in the 2013 Sepang 12 Hour and completing a deal to compete in two Blancpain Series races in Europe in 2013, including the Spa 24 Hour in the JBS Swift Lamborghini. David won his debut ADAC GT Masters race with the Rieter Engineering Lamborghini Team in 2015 and he became the first Australian racing driver to compete with the factory Bentley GT Team at the 2016 Bathurst 12 Hour. David was contracted to the factory Nissan Motorsport V8 Supercar team as an endurance race co-driver for the past five seasons before joining one of Australia's most successful Supercar teams, Tickford Racing, as one of the team's four endurance race drivers for 2018 and beyond. Marinelli Motorsport provides full athlete representation, management and publicity services for this well established GT and V8 Supercar enduro racer.
