"I really can’t wait to get into the S5000 and see what everyone is talking about,” said Winslow.
“I was racing ELMS at Spa on the Sandown weekend, and people were coming up to me asking about it. I was surprised that word had spread over to Europe before a race had even been run.
“The cars look amazing. Everyone knows that I love single-seater racing, and it’s great that there is a good, strong class back in Australia. And to have a big V8 engine in the back is a massive bonus.
“I did a lot of Formula 3 racing, A1GP and other single-seaters so it really appeals to me.
“I’d definitely like to do more of this. I’d like to do the full championship next season. This round is a one-off, but very keen to get back into a single-seater, and if the Gold Star was included next year, it would be good to come back and try and get a third title.”
Winslow will get his first taste of the S5000 at The Bend on Thursday, during a special practice session for drivers that are new to the category.
