The new deal preceeded a win for David Russell in New Zealand

Dayco Ambassador David Russell has ended the longest drought in Porsche Carrera Cup Australia history, claiming his first ever overall round win in his 60th attempt.
David, who is competing with TekworkX Motorsport this season, had finished second on six occasions and gained 14 prior Porsche Carrera Cup overall round podium appearances without a round win in his otherwise highly successful Carrera Cup career.
The Dayco driver ended that streak in style at the series’ second round held at Taupo Motorsport Park in New Zealand from April 19 to 21.
Just before the New Zealand Porsche Carrera Cup round, the news broke that David had switched Supercar camps to the PremiAir Nulon Racing Supercar team for the 2024 Supercars Endurance season, partnering with James Golding in the #31 PremiAir Nulon Racing Camaro.
David has forged a long and successful career as a Supercars co-driver, starring as a leading co-driver in the Supercars enduro season in all but one year since 2010. 
He made his Bathurst debut in 2001, competing in his first ‘Great Race’ in 2003 with Fernandes Motorsport, before going on to drive for Tekno Autosport, Kelly Racing / Nissan Motorsport, Dick Johnson Racing, Tickford Racing, Matt Stone Racing and Erebus Motorsport.   
The Dayco Ambassador has come agonisingly close to Bathurst glory on two occasions – standing on the Mount Panorama podium in 2021 (third) and 2023 (second), both times while co-driving with 2023 Supercars Champion Brodie Kostecki.  
David has plenty of Bathurst success to his name outside of Supercars too, racing to class victories, championships and overall podium successes in every Bathurst Production Car / GT endurance race format, including two, three, six, 12, and 24-hour distance races throughout his career.  
“I am thrilled to finally announce that I am joining PremiAir Nulon Racing at the Sandown 500 and Bathurst 1000 this year,” David said.   
“James Golding’s performance at Bathurst earlier this year was outstanding, and I am eager to partner up for some fantastic outcomes in the endurance races this September and October.” 
“We are very pleased to finally be able to announce that David is joining our team for our 2024 endurance campaign,” PremiAir Nulon Racing Team Owner, Peter Xiberras, said.
“He has won at Bathurst in basically everything except a Supercar, where he has come oh-so-close with a second place last year partnering with Supercars champion Brodie Kostecki.    
“There is no doubt he is highly experienced when it comes to the Mountain and to Supercars, and we are very excited to see what he and Jimmy can do in the #31 this year.”
