Barton Mawer on S5000 grid with privateer entry
Experienced open-wheel driver Barton Mawer has joined the S5000 series for its debut season, to drive for Milldun Motorsport
Mawer began in Formula Ford before moving to Australian Formula 3, where he was a consistent front-runner, finishing second in the 2003 championship.
He also holds the sedan lap record at Sydney Motorsport Park, after winning the 2018 World Time Attack in a Porsche 968.
He said “I am so excited to be a part of Australian motorsport history by competing in the inaugural S5000 race at Sandown on 20-22 September.”
“I have been following closely the journey this class has taken since the early inception. I met with Chris Lambden early in 2016 and could see his vision and admired the concept.”
“Australia has been starved of a proper premier open wheeler category in this country for too long, S5000 has re sparked the interest of a lot of the old guard and some new people also.”
The New South Welshman’s entry comes thanks to S5000 investor Bill Tymms.
