PremiAir Nulon Racing is pleased to announce that David Russell will co-drive with Jimmy Golding in the #31 PremiAir Nulon Racing Camaro at the 2024 Sandown 500 and Bathurst 1000 endurance events.  

Russell and the team came to an agreement a number of weeks ago and are ecstatic to be now able to make the news public.  

The 42-year-old New South Welshman 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.  

In that time, he has come agonisingly close to victory on two occasions—standing on the podium in 2021 (third) and 2023 (second), both times while co-driving with 2023 Champion Brodie Kostecki.  

He 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.  

Russell is also one of Australia’s most experienced Porsche Carrera Cup drivers, having accumulated more than a decade in the world’s fastest one-make motor racing series and gaining 36 Carrera Cup podium finishes in that time and finishing as the runner-up of the series in both 2015 and 2022.  

And his experience doesn’t end there either – Russell has also enjoyed much success internationally in GT racing during his career, gaining wins and podium finishes in the ADAC GT Masters in Europe, the Spa 24 Hour, the Sepang 12 Hour and Dubai 24 Hour races along with the aforementioned class wins and podium finishes in the Bathurst 12 Hour. 

PremiAir Nulon Racing is currently preparing for the next round of the 2024 Supercars Championship, the Taupo Super 400, which will be held across April 19-21. For event information and schedules, visit www.supercars.com.au  


David Russell:  

“I am thrilled to finally announce that I am joining PremiAir Nulon Racing,” Russell said.  

“Jimmy’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.” 

Jimmy Golding: 

“I am looking forward to driving alongside Dave. He has a lot of experience that will add great value to our team,” Golding said.  

“I haven’t worked or driven with him previously, so I am interested to see how he goes about it. Everyone is different because of the experiences they have had, so there is always something to learn from one another” 

Peter Xiberras: 

“We are very pleased to finally be able to announce that David is joining our team for our 2024 endurance campaign,” Xiberras said. 

“He has won at Bathurst in basically everything except a Supercar, where he has come oh-so-close with a second place at the 2023 event alongside 2023 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.”
