Murphy set to be without full time drive in V8 Supercars

6:40 pm on 9 November 2010

The four-time Bathurst winner Greg Murphy says he won't be taking up the second year option of his contract with V8 Supercar team Paul Morris Motorsport.

The 38-year-old New Zealander has had a disappointing year after confirming the switch to the Holden team at the end of last year and is currently 22nd on the championship standings.

It's unsure what will happen to the veteran driver now, although a possible role as a part-time co-driver for the season's endurance races may now be his lot.

But Murphy says he's not willing to give up on securing a full-time drive with another team for next year and certainly won't be retiring.
