It's possibly the worst kept secret in Aussie motorsport; however, this morning on the Gold Coast, we received confirmation, the youngster who's been clocking up some hours with the operation is now set to be the youngest Triple Eight driver in history.
Broc Feeney the current Dunlop Super2 Series points leader will turn 19 in October and share a Supercheap Auto-backed Triple Eight wildcard with Russell Ingall at the Repco Bathurst 1000.
