After two seasons of driving for Triple Eight in the second Supercars team, as well as working in a team at its base in Brisbane, Musuris moved into the offseason to the MW Motorsport team, shod by Nissan.
His Super2 program will be combined with his first appearance in the Carrera Cup, where he will play for Sonic Motorsport, the team that helped him win the 2019 Australian Formula One title.
That would mean double duties in Townsville, Sandown and the weekend Bathurst 1000.
“It’s great to capture my races for 2022,” he said.
“This year I’m back in Melbourne, and riding in two completely different categories is really cool and will be a new challenge for me.
“With a season of just six rounds you don’t go many laps in a supercar, so it would be good to be in a race car more often.”
“And I’m going to race on tracks I haven’t ridden before, such as the first round at Albert Park in Porsche, so that’s a huge positive.”
“There will be several rounds in which I will have only one car, and then there will be several events where I will have both, which I look forward to. I recently tested them both and pretty quickly got into a groove.
“Of course, additional preparatory work will be done, but I want to demonstrate my flexibility and ability to adapt in two very different racing cars.
“I’ve fought against Matthew White’s team in the past and I know they’re really professional and results-oriented. I very quickly felt comfortable with the team and the car. I’m sure we can pick up speed quickly before the 1st round [of Super2].
“Porsche is very different from what I’ve ridden in the past. It has a lot more rear clutch and has a different driving style, but they’re really fun to drive, and probably Sonic and Mick’s team [Ritter] will disassemble me in readiness for Albert Park.
“It’s also great to connect with the team at Sonic. They’ve played such an important role in my development at Formula Ford and I can do so much of what I can do in a race car that I can pay tribute to them. His record with The pilots speak for themselves – in whatever category they participate in – so I hope to continue that with them in the Carrera Cup this year. “
“I look forward to 2022. It will be a busy year. “
The 2022 Super2 season kicks off in Sydney’s SuperNight on March 4-6, and the Porsche season kicks off in Albert Park on April 7-10.
