Following the confirmation that the Red Lion is on the hunt for a V8 queen to join V8 King Craig Lowndes on the Supercar’s grid, the Sunday Telegraph can reveal current Nissan Motorsport Australia driver de Silvestro is on the Holden hitlist.




Holden Executive Director Marketing Mark Harland admitted the car manufacturer could make a play at signing the woman who became the first ever full-time Supercar’s female driver when she joined the series last year.

“I also have not ruled out having a chat to Simona,’’ Harland said.

“That is something I intend to do. We will look at that and I certainly wouldn’t eliminate anything at this point.’’

In her second year of a three-year contract with Nissan, de Silvestro has already declared he intent to remain in the series beyond 2019.

“The plan is to stay,’’ de Silvestro said.

“Coming here in the first place was a very big move and I didn’t take it lightly. Coming from Europe, it was a long way away. But I did it because I love Supercars and I like the competition of the series.’’

On Saturday, The Daily Telegraph revealed Australian WRC star Molly Taylor is at the top of Holden’s female driver wish list.

Harland also said the hunt for women would not be confined to the track.

“I have also spoken to various people about helping to promote various programs to increase the number of women in the sport,’’ Harland said.

“I have spoken to CAMS (Confederation of Australian Motorsport) and also Supercars about ways to get women involved in the sport in all areas from engineering to commercial. We have quite a few programs at GM and many women, including a CEO, at the company.’’

The Supercars championship resumes this week with the first ever championship round at the Australian GP.

The Coates Hire Supercars 400 will begin with practice and qualifying on Thursday in a mouth-watering entree to the Formula One season starter.
