Bunning has been at the forefront of the Australian car manufacturers revival, and its revival in the United States is even more impressive considering its short history of making cars.
The brand has long been an underdog in Australian racing, with the team of Paul Davison, Tony Kanaan and Tom Killeen the only car makers to win the Australian F1 championship in the mid-2000s.
But that all changed when the team moved to the US, taking on the brand name of KTM.
The move was a massive blow for Bunnies stock, as it meant they had to take a big financial hit, and in turn lost a large number of fans.
Bunnies team manager Paul Davinson says he and his team are confident in what they’re doing in the US and is optimistic about the future.
“We’ve had the support of all of the companies, and we’ve been through a lot of changes in the industry and it’s been a really good time to get it going,” he told Motorsport.com.
“The company has been really positive in the last three or four years, we’ve had a lot to show for it, and now we have a lot more to show.”
The team has made big strides in recent years, winning the inaugural Australian Supercars championship in 2018.
“It’s the first time I’ve had to sell my brand and sell it and move on,” Davison said.
“I’m sure there’s a lot people who are still invested in it and we’re hoping to do even better next year.”
He added that the team was also working with a number of other companies in the sports car industry, but was unable to share their details due to confidentiality agreements.
Davison believes that the return to the USA will bring a lot for the brand, and that he’s confident of the success of the brand in the future.
“We’re confident the brand is going to do well, we’re confident it’s going to be a great brand and we want to keep the momentum going,” Davinson said.
