Andre Heimgartner re-signs for Kelly Racing

Andre Heimgartner has re-signed for Kelly Racing and will continue driving the #7 Nissan Altima in the 2019 Supercars Championship season.

“It’s great to finally announce my return to Kelly Racing for 2019. I can’t wait to get into the new season,” said Heimgartner.

“We had some strong results at the end of last year and with the continual development of the Altima over the summer, I’m confident that we will be able to hit the ground running.”

Heimgartner finished 18th overall last season with sixth place in the season finale as his best result.

“Andre has developed into a great asset for our team and we are excited to continue our journey with him,” said team co-owner Todd Kelly.

“He has a natural born ability to drive race cars – fast and hungry. I’m confident that we are going to see the best of Andre this year.”

Heimgartner will join team-mates Rick Kelly and Simona Simona De Silvestro while the fourth driver is yet to be revealed.
