Dream Racing Australia Sign Glenn Seton as Technical Advisor

Press Release – Australian touring car hero Glenn Seton has joined Dream Racing Australia as part of the team’s expanded technical department.

Better known as ‘Seto’ on the local motorsport scene, the Sydney-born Queensland resident will be the team’s technical advisor, overseeing on-track activity for Dream Racing’s stable of entries in the Trico Trans Am Series.

Seton joins Craig Scutella (Team Principal) and will work closely with Cameron Fisher (General Manager Operations and crew chief) and Kim Jane (team manager) across both DRA’s Trans Am and TA2 motor racing categories.

Seton is a two-time Australian Touring Car champion (1993 and 1997), both achieved while running, engineering and driving for his own team, and is regarded as one of the most naturally-gifted drivers of his time.

He is also regarded as the most talented driver to have not won The Great Race – the Bathurst 1000 – a feat that his father Barry did back in 1965.

Post racing, he has turned his skills to engineering race cars, including guiding his son Aaron to multiple race wins in Trans Am.

DRA has a strong stable of drivers in 2024 but has recognised that the competitiveness of the series has lifted considerably, with many current and ex-Supercars drivers racing.

Seton will make his first appearance for the Dream Racing Australia Trans Am squad at the third round of the 2024 Trico Trans Am Series at The Bend Motorsport Park this weekend.

“Cam (Fisher) reached out recently to come along and be a part of it, and I spoke to Craig and quickly did a deal. I know these guys, they know me, it all made sense,” said Seton.

“I will do as many events with the team as I can, and that will end up being quite a few.

“The Dream Racing team is doing a lot of events, and they are running a lot of cars, so sometimes it’s good to have more eyes run over it to see where they can do better. That’s where I see the benefit for them.

“I feel I can help them move forward. I guess my role will be to technically advise on where they are and move them forward. I want to have a positive influence on the team’s results.”

“I can also help the drivers with the driving side to get the best out of these cars. The cars require a unique driving style, being big and heavy and with a very old style cross-ply type tyre on them.”

Team Principal, Dream Racing Australia
“I am excited to welcome Glenn, a true legend and gentleman of Australian motor racing, to the DRA team,” said Scutella.

“Cameron Fisher and Kim Jane have worked with/alongside/opposed to Glenn now for over three decades so there is tremendous mutual respect.

“DRA were opponents to Aaron and Glenn across 3 years through 2019 to 2021 in TA2 and Trans Am, and they were tough competition.

“DRA ultimately triumphed in 2021 ARG Trans Am National Series with Nathan Herne, albeit Aaron made a very tough decision to pull his Trans Am campaign to concentrate on Dunlop Super 2 towards the end of that season when these two outstanding drivers were fighting for the championship.

“During this period, we closely observed, from a distance (as a competitor) the unbelievable finesse, time, precision, and methodical meticulousness that Glenn put in from 6am to 9pm (often longer) every day of the race meeting, and I have to say with truly outstanding results.

“DRA is lucky that we have been graced with some outstanding drivers and a wonderful crew (led by Cameron and Kim) and we are confident that the team working closely together will produce the best race cars … and the results will follow.”
