Having stepped up from the Dunlop Series as the reigning Champion, McLaughlin made his debut in the 2013 V8 Supercar Championship. He made an impact immediately, qualifying in the ARMOR ALL Top 10 Shootout for his first official full-time race at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide.

McLaughlin went onto to take two Championship races wins and finished the 2013 season 10th in the Championship, earning him the the Mike Kable Young Gun Award, recognising rookie of the year.

The quietly spoken Kiwi-born racer made his debut in the Development Series as a 16-year-old back in 2010.

Having started his career in karts, the youngster was part of the Britek Motorsport Scholarship program and impressed Stone Brothers Racing bosses Ross and Jim Stone enough to warrant them moving him straight into the Dunlop Series.

An apprentice fabricator with experience working behind the scenes at SBR, Pace Innovations and GRM, McLaughlin completed his apprenticeship in 2013 and will still continue to work in the Valvoline Racing GRM workshop in-between on-track commitments.

In 2014 McLaughlin has the opportunity to develop and race a new car, with Valvoline Racing GRM making the switch from Holden to Volvo and debuting the Volvo Polestar S60s at the first round in Adelaide.
