The Scott Taylor Motorsport (STM) #222 GT3 Cup car will be driven by Alex Davison in the opening round of the Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Australia, at the Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.
Scott Taylor sustained an injury during a recent triathlon event in Mooloolaba and has elected not to drive whilst he is recovering.
“The best approach is to ensure my injury is fully repaired and that means being responsible and practical. As much as I would love to be driving in the opening round, I am following professional advice,” Scott Taylor said.
“Alex Davison is a highly valued member of the STM team and I’m genuinely excited to see him representing STM.”
Davison has worked with Taylor for several years in a driver coaching role, as well as competing with the team in several Bathurst 12 Hour campaigns.
Alex won the 2004 Carrera Cup Australia Championship and remains one of the series’ most successful drivers in its 20-year history.
“I’m really looking forward to the opportunity to jump behind the wheel of the STM Porsche 992 GT3 Cup Car at Albert Park,” Davison said.
“Thanks to Scott and Rebecca for the opportunity to fill in while he is recovering.
“I’ve been fortunate to have had a lot of success at Albert Park in Carrera Cup in the past so it will be great to go there in the new car and compete in such a competitive field.
“There’s no expectations other than representing the STM squad as well as possible and enjoying the weekend.”
