New Appointments at V8 Ute Board Level

2014-07-25T06:44:31+00:00 July 25th, 2014|News|


The Australian V8 Ute Racing Series board has seen movement in its stables of late with Andrew “Fishtail” Fisher voted to the positon of Director, representing the Ford’s shareholder’s interests following the resignation of long term Director Ben Dunn. Andrew Eglinton was also re-elected for a further term to represent the Holden Shareholders alongside Kim Jane.

Fisher will bring with him a wealth of experience, not just as a driver but also with vast background in business management and consulting. Andrew has also been a shareholder and racer in the Series since 2007 in the Jesus Racing Ford, and is looking forward to contributing to the Series at Board level.

“I’m looking forward to being a part of the Board, obviously I’ve been a part of the Ute Series for a long time and it’s great to be a part of the planning process, especially with the evolUTEion 2016 ute coming and all of the excitement and anticipation towards that. It will be great to be on the board working with the other guys looking at where we can take what’s already a great series to an even greater height,” explained Fisher.

Eglinton will represent the Holden camp alongside Kim Jane. He was first elected into the role in late 2005 and stepped down for re-election last month, so Holden shareholders would have the opportunity for change if desired. The Senior Account Executive of Engineering and Technical Recruitment Company Adecco, is ready to assume the role once again.

“I’m looking forward to continuing in the role as Holden Shareholder Director and providing ongoing support for the category. It’s an exciting time in the Series moving into the evolUTEion platform and it will be fantastic to be continually involved in the progression,” said Eglinton.

Independent Chairman of the Board Peter Henry welcomes both Eglinton and Fisher on-board.

“Congratulations to Andrew on his reappointment to the Board but also it’s fantastic to have Andrew Fisher on board. His depth and business experience will add great value and we’re looking forward to the exciting couple of years that we have coming up as the evolUTEion continues,” says Henry.

The Board also renewed the contract of Event Management / Marketing Company SPHERIX, on a multi-year contract, to continue running the Australian V8 Ute Racing Series and partner Bill West is looking forward to the opportunity.

“We’ve be involved for a long time now and to see the Series move into its next phase is really exciting. My business partner Craig Denyer and I have had 8 great years with the Ute family and we are looking forward to taking the series to a new and exciting level. We have seen Craig Dontas go through puberty, Jack Elsegood get engaged, David Sieders become a father, David White move into management level in V8 Supercars, Ryal Harris win back to back titles plus Chris Pither, Warren Luff, Marcus Zukanovic, James Moffat, George Miedecke and Jesse Dixon all go on to race V8 Supercars,  so it’s been a great ride,” said West.

The five V8 Ute Board directors include Peter Henry as the Independent Chairman, Kim Jane and Andrew Eglinton as the Holden Shareholder Directors and Gary MacDonald and Andrew Fisher as the Ford Shareholder Directors.

    I’m not sure why but this website is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
