Jason Sellers will be making his trans Tasman debut alongside Team NZ to battle Australia’s and Japan’s finest in what is sure to be very interesting combat following the result of last year’s Tectaloy International Drift Challenge.
Although not overly familiar to Aussie drift fans, those who keep an eye on the New Zealand scene will know that Sellers is one of NZs longest standing drift campaigners in his black and green C33 Laurel, with Jason’s twin brother Matt recently making his car available to Nigel Petrie for his recent trans-Tasman trip.
Sellers and his family team including crew chief and father Peter, who is the brains behind many of the custom fabricated pieces that adorn this car, have worked away on the same car since it debuted way back when, running a stock unopened RB20DET for 3 solid seasons with no failures. After some round wins and a trip to Malaysia to compete in Formula D, the Sellers team made the call to fit a 2JZGTE engine to the car and have campaigned it that way since.
Sellers is known as one of the nice guys of the sport, with an ever-present smile on his face, even when things aren’t going his way, and always surrounded by a supportive family unit. Sellers has had an up and down past couple of seasons but seems to again be finding the form that made him #2 in NZ a few seasons back.
Sellers is pleased to announce he will be joining a strong Super Charge Batteries team for the event and is looking forward to his first international competition.
“Having the chance to compete overseas is unreal! The lineup I’ve seen already is awesome, it’s sure going to be a strong competition, but with the support of Supercharge Batteries, I’m ready for it! Team NZ took out the win last year and I’m sure we’re going to do it again with an even stronger team!”
