Scott McLaughlin: The record breaker


DJR Team Penske’s Scott McLaughlin has rewritten the Australian Touring Car Championship/Virgin Australia Supercars Championship record books in 2019. SupercarXtra Magazine issue #114 looks at the story of his remarkable season and what comes next.

CLICK HERE for more information on issue #114.

At 26 years of age, McLaughlin hit the peak of his powers in 2019. 

The New Zealander always seemed destined for Supercars stardom, from making his debut in the Dunlop Super2 Series as a baby-faced 16-year-old in 2010 to winning races in his first full-time season in the Supercars main game in 2013 to finishing in the top 10 of the championship in each of his seven full-time seasons, having won races across two teams, four different cars and three manufacturers.

The move to DJR Team Penske in 2017 and the partnership with engineer Ludo Lacroix elevated him to the next level, leading to the record-breaking run of 2019 that saw him win a second consecutive championship and the Bathurst 1000 for the first time.

Issue #114 outlines the story of his season, the key players, the factors in his success and what the future holds for the two-time champion.
