USQ Engineering will return to the track supporting Nathan Assaillit as he takes on the 2013 Kumho V8 Australian Touring Car Championship.

Assaillit is trying to realise his dream of racing V8 Supercars while completing his Bachelor of Engineering (mechanical) at the University of Southern Queensland.

In a display of confidence in both Assaillit's abilities on track and in the classroom, USQ Engineering will be backing him during the 2013 season.

"I am very excited and I have USQ Engineering supporting me for the 2013 V8 Touring Car Championship," Assaillit said.

"I will be competing in a new BF Falcon - which is the latest eligible model for the V8 Touring Car Series - and it will be a great looking car - emblazoned with the golden Phoenix.'

"It will be great to get in a newer car and we'll definitely be looking to win some races."

Assaillit competed in selected rounds of the 2012 Australian Touring Car Championship and is now gearing for a full season tilt at the title.

The championship acts as a development series for up-and-coming drivers with competitors such as V8 Supercar driver Steve Owen and Australian GT Championship driver Ben Eggelston having competed in the past.

The series also utilises cars that competed in the V8 Supercar Championship in previous seasons.

The Kumho Championship starts at Sydney's Motorsports Park on March 22
