Covers come off Smith BJR wildcard

Jack Smith’s Brad Jones Racing wildcard

Brad Jones Racing has revealed the look of its wildcard entry for Jack Smith ahead of this weekend’s Tyrepower Tasmania SuperSprint.

The Super2 driver will step up to the main game at Symmons Plains behind the wheel of the #4 SCT Logistics Racing entry which features the same design as his BJR Super2 VF Commodore.

Smith logged his first laps in BJR’s fourth ZB Commodore during a test day at Winton last week which the 19-year-old hailed as one of his most productive Supercar outings.    

The Gold Coast driver was assisted by BJR regular Nick Percat at the Victorian circuit. 

“I was surprised at the difference between the ZB and VF Commodores,” said Smith.

“The SCT Logistics ZB Supercar has a few differences to my Super2 car but as the test day went on, I was getting more comfortable with everything and I learned a lot.”

“I felt like the car had a lot of grip and we made all the right gains that we wanted to on the day. The overall feeling was just great, and I really enjoyed driving the car.

“Nick helped me throughout the day with getting the SCT Logistics Supercar in the right direction. It was really great to have Nick there, plus Paul Forgie and Andrew Jones continue to help me every step of the way.”

Smith, who is also engineered by Forgie in Super2, believes he is fully prepared to face the daunting task of racing against Supercars’ elite for the first time.

“I’m as prepared as I can be for the weekend ahead,” he added.

“For me it’s about getting experience and learning as much as I can across the weekend. There will be a lot to take in, it’s a big deal to join these guys that I’ve been watching race for years.”

Matt Stone Racing has also unveiled its look for Symmons Plains and the following weekend’s WD-40 Phillip Island SuperSprint.

Its Todd Hazelwood-driven ZB Commodore will carry sponsorship from affiliate betting site iBet.com.au at each of those events under its rolling sponsorship model.

Smith’s SCT Logistics Racing ZB Commodore will hit the track for the first time in the additional driver practice at 1030 AEDT.
