Supercars appoints title-winning engineer as new technical manager

Supercars has named title-winning engineer Campbell Little as its technical manager ahead of the 2019 season.

Campbell will report to new head of motorsport Adrian Burgess in the newly created role. The pair worked together last year at the Tekno Autosports Holden squad.

An announcement from the series said Little has been given the role “as planning for the next-generation Supercar begins”, with hybrid technologies widely tipped to be under evaluation for 2021.

“Campbell brings with him a wealth of experience, not just within the Supercars paddock, but from around the world working in different categories and manufacturers,” said Burgess.

“His expertise will ensure we maintain focus on key technical projects, future technologies and initiatives from within Australia and around the world, as we also look ahead to the next generation.”

Little (pictured above) added: “With the introduction of the [Ford] Mustang this year the timing is just right for this new challenge in my career.

“I’ve spent a long time working within this great category, it really is the best touring car series in the world.

“I look forward working with the technical department and the teams.”

Little’s CV includes two titles and five Bathurst 1000 crowns as a race engineer, following successful stints with the likes of Stone Brothers Racing, Dick Johnson Racing, and Triple Eight.

This will be his second stint in a technical role within the Supercars organisation, having served as the series’ technical director for six months before resigning in 2009.
