Confirmation that DJR will field two cars leaves the team searching for a second driver to partner Steve Johnson. Speedcafe.com understands that Steve Owen is in the frame to retain his place at the downsized team in Triple F's #12 entry.
Fiore says that is comfortable leasing his family's REC to DJR.
“I can confirm that I've lease my REC. I finalised the terms with DJR yesterday,” Fiore told Speedcafe.com.
“DJR has been great to me from the start. I'm good mates with everyone there and as far as I can see, the REC is in safe hands.”
While Fiore won't compete under his own #12 entry, he says that he will consider remaining in the game. A potential seat that he could land in is at Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport's recently expanded two-car team.
Fiore says that his priority is to remain in the V8 Championship.
“I'm trying to stay in the Main Game, but if I have to do Carrera Cup and endurance stuff, I will,” he said.
“I'm trying my hardest to stay in the game and I'd like to lock something away soon.”
