After a whirlwind start to his new career as a GT competitor, Hong Kong’s Matt Solomon will make his second start in the competitive Australian GT Championship this weekend on the Albert Park Circuit in Melbourne, the scene of the opening Formula 1 Grand Prix of the season.
The former open-wheel star made his debut in the #38 Geelong Sales Company Mercedes-AMG GT3 just two weeks ago on the streets of Adelaide, and despite an intense baptism of fire, emerged relatively unscathed with an impressive run in the final 40-minute race to climb from 21st to third at the chequered flag.
This week the former open-wheel star claims another first, this time on the hallowed Formula 1 turf of Albert Park where he will re-join the Eggleston Motorsport team for the second round of the Australian Championships for four 25-minute races across the four days of the season opening F1 event.
“Excitement is a word I’ve used a lot over the last couple of weeks to describe what’s going on,” Solomon admitted. “I’m really excited about the opportunity again to get in the car, and really excited to be racing at the Grand Prix, which will also be my first actual visit to Albert Park.”
