KEITH KASSULKE

PAPUA NEW GUINEA

Australian Keith Kassulke is an experienced endurance campaigner who also has made a name for himself as a top level driver in the Australian Touring Car Masters (TCM) series.

Starting his career in 2009 in sports cars, Kassulke joined TCM a year later and has amassed four top-five finishes in the Pro Masters (outright) class, 2 race wins from 13 podium finishes, 2 pole positions, and a best championship finish of 3rd outright in 2014 behind the wheel of his Ford XB Falcon GT Coupe.

Kassulke has also competed in the Australian GT Championship, 24H Barcelona, the Kumho Tyres Wakefield 300 enduro, the New Zealand Highlands 101, while also winning the 2014 Winton Super TT event. The native Queenslander made his debut for MARC Cars Australia’s creator Ryan McLeod in the 2012 24H Silverstone claming pole for Class 4 in the Holden Astra.

Despite finishing 3rd in Class SP3 at the 2014 Dubai 24 Hours for Red Camel Racing, Kassulke continued under the MARC Cars Australia banner for 2014 to claim 2nd in Class I for the Bathurst 12 Hour, 3rd in Class SP2 for 12H Zandvoort, 5th outright in Race 2 at the Britcar Endurance at Spa-Francorchamps, and 3rd in Class SP2 at 24H Zolder.

Kassulke’s 2015 campaign started off on a strong note, finishing first in Class SP2 at the 24 Hours of Dubai, followed by a stellar appearance at the inaugural Highlands Festival of Speed where he finished the fastest of the Touring Car Masters stars racing against New Zealand’s Central Muscle Car competitors.

Kassulke will be part of the driver line-up who will debut the new MARC Mazda 3 V8 at the 2015 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 hour.

While an Australian, Kassulke currently lives in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, to run his successful company Wheels Ltd, a special imports company for PNG and Pacific islands, and is also the ARB 4WD Accessories distributor into PNG.
