Shane van Gisbergen has played down links to the Project 91 NASCAR programme — but maintains he would love to make a cameo in the US series.

The three-time Supercars champion has been closely linked to the Trackhouse Racing-run initiative that has seen Kimi Raikkonen make a pair of NASCAR starts.

Trackhouse boss Justin Marks recently confirmed that a new driver will take over the entry next time it races, prompting speculation that van Gisbergen could be that driver given he revealed last year that preliminary talks with Marks had taken place.

Neither the Sonoma road course nor the Chicago street track events clash with Supercars rounds.

Speaking to, the Kiwi played down any notion of a done deal, although reiterated that a NASCAR start is on his wish list.
