Shane van Gisbergen has confirmed his intention to make a permanent switch from Supercars to NASCAR next season.
He is under contract with Triple Eight in Supercars next year, but the team has been clear that it will release him if needed.
An early exit is now all but a certainty, van Gisbergen confirming to media in Sydney this evening that he is on the hunt for a NASCAR programme next year.
When asked if it will be a full-time deal he said it wasn’t sure, although that appeared to be reference to a full Cup programme.
Opening up on how his 2024 may look, van Gisbergen hinted at the lower rungs on the NASCAR ladder as he acclimatises to oval racing.
“When I study it, Marcos [Ambrose] did three years before he went to Cup full-time. [Juan Pablo] Montoya was pretty much a full season as well. Nobody has ever gone into Cup.
