Bryce Fullwood will move from MW Motorsport to Matt Stone Racing for the 2018 Dunlop Super2 Series.

Fullwood will pilot one of MSR’s newly-acquired ex-DJR Team Penske FGX Falcons for his fourth year in the series.

The new hardware, due to be delivered in January, has been bought as part of the team’s and 2017 Super2 Series winner Todd Hazelwood’s step up to the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.

Fullwood joined MWM for the final round of 2015, earning a first race podium 12 months later at Sydney Olympic Park.

He picked up another three after upgrading from an old-specification FG Falcon to a COTF Nissan Altima at Townsville this year, ultimately finishing 11th in the standings.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with MW Motorsport for the past 2 years; Matt (White) runs a really professional race team, my engineer Brendan (McGinniskin) has taught me so much and I’m going to really miss everyone there,” said the Territorian.

“It’s going be a new challenge working with new people and a new car after I’ve just clicked with the Nissan.

“However, with the success of the past 12 months for DJR Team Penske in those chassis, we are hoping we can utilise that and come out with a very competitive package for 2018.

“I’m really looking forward to racing with Matt Stone and his team, to be part of a team that’s in its infancy in the main Supercar Series will be pretty special.

“I’ll be learning a lot from Todd who I’ve known for many years, having first met in Go Karts.

“Todd has shown that great reward can come from hard work and I’ll be working as hard as I can to emulate Todd’s success in the Super2 Series.”

Fullwood is scheduled to have two test days in the FGX before the season officially begins at the Adelaide 500 on March 1-4.
