Marinelli Motorsport has created and executed a more than decade strong Australian and international motorsport marketing strategy for global automotive engine component manufacturer Dayco, that includes a brand ambassador in highly experienced racing driver David Russell, linked with international and Australian GT, Production Cars, Supercar endurance races and Porsche Carrera Cup in an all encompassing program.


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 during his career. David is also a Supercar endurance racing specialist, while also having forged a strong career as a front-running international GT Sportscar racer, having raced to class victories, outright victories and podiums in all Bathurst sportscar endurance race formats, along with two Supercar Development Series pole positions and victories at the iconic circuit, highlighted by third overall in the 2021 Repco Bathurst 1000 with Brodie Kostecki and Erebus Motorsport, following this up with 4th overall and the second fastest co-driver of the field in the 2022 edition of the great race. David raced to second overall in the 2013 Sepang 12 Hour and was selected 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 in 2015 with the Rieter Engineering Lamborghini Team at the Red Bull Ring in Austria and he became the first Australian racing driver to compete with the factory Bentley GT Team at the 2016 Bathurst 12 Hour. He was also selected as the Nissan factory Supercar team's endurance race co-driver across a five year span, a further two years with Kelly Racing (Holden) and one season with both Tickford Racing and Matt Stone Racing. David is one of the country's most experienced Supercar and GT endurance race drivers, coupling his latest Supercar top four result with another third place (overall) finish in the 2021 Bathurst Six Hour production car race. The Dayco Ambassador also competed in most rounds of the 2021 Porsche Carrera Cup Australia championship and finished third in the 2022 Championship with EMA Motorsport.
