“There are several factors that influenced my decision to resign from Premiair Racing,” he told Speedcafe.
“I've been presented with numerous opportunities both within Supercars and externally that I am currently considering.
“I'll be remaining in motorsport and looking forward to my next challenge.”
Slater, who boasts a PHD in Mechanical Engineering, is highly regarded within the Supercars paddock, having won both the Bathurst 1000 and Bathurst 12 Hour with Tekno Autosports in 2016.
Slater then spent a stint in the United States, where he masterminded victory in the 24 Hours of Daytona and Michelin Endurance Cup, with the Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing squad which runs BMW's factory IMSA programme.
He joined PremiAir – which morphed out of Tekno – in mid-2022 and would become its Chief Engineer/Director of Engineering, after which Simon Hodge was brought in on secondment to work as Race Engineer on the James Golding Camaro.
