Scott McLaughlin’s first race winning Supercar for sale

The Holden Commodore VF that Scott McLaughlin took his first Virgin Australia Supercars Championship win with is for sale.

Built and campaigned by Garry Rogers Motorsport, the car (GRM VF14) was McLaughlin’s first as a full-time competitor in the championship.

McLaughlin claimed dual top 10 finish on his debut at the Clipsal 500 on the Adelaide Street Circuit, finishing sixth and ninth across the two 250 kilometre races.

The Kiwi took a phenomenal first win on home soil in the 2013 edition of the ITM Auckland SuperSprint (then the ITM 400 Auckland) at Pukekohe Park.

At the time of his first win, McLaughlin was just 19 years old. A year earlier he’d won the Dunlop Super2 Series with Stone Brothers Racing.

He also took a win at the non-championship Australian Grand Prix event at the Albert Park Street Circuit. Its second official win came at Queensland Raceway and eventually, McLaughlin finished 10th in the championship with 12 top 10 finished.

It was the only year that McLaughlin ever campaigned a Holden Commodore VF in the championship full-time.

The following year, Garry Rogers Motorsport moved to the iconic Volvo S60 and the Holden Commodore ended up being campaigned in the Dunlop Super2 Series with James Golding.

Golding took the car to fourth in the Supercars feeder series in 2016 and won at both Phillip Island and Sandown Raceway. The car is being returned to its original livery.
