“I reckon it looks cool,” said Martin.

“It is something that Adam (Gotch, AGI Sport team owner) came up with, and I added my bit in. For a one-off round, we think that we’ve got something that looks pretty good, and every loves the carbon look, so I think it is going to turn some heads.”

The S5000 car, built in-house by Melbourne race team Garry Rogers Motorsport, is a masterpiece of Australian engineering, with as many as 14 set to compete in the first event at Sandown.

Practice kicks off on Friday, September 20, followed by qualifying and racing on Saturday and Sunday.
