Jack Perkins will return to Eggleston Motorsport (EMS) for next month’s third round of the Dunlop Super2 Series in Townsville.

The Walkinshaw Andretti United Pirtek Enduro Cup co-driver takes over the entry which Dean Fiore drove in Adelaide and at Barbagallo as part of a two-round deal.

Perkins contested six of the seven rounds of the 2013 Super2 Series with EMS, winning three races along the way, and also swept the Sandown round of the 2015 Kumho Tyre Super3 Series in a one-off start with the Victorian outfit.

He joins Will Brown, a first-time Super2 race winner at last month’s Pirtek Perth SuperNight, and another EMS returnee in Justin Ruggier, who now expects to complete the full season after a series of one-off deals to start his rookie Super2 campaign.

Perkins is hopeful he will join them in one of EMS’s VF Commodores also for Round 4 at Queensland Raceway later in July.

The Watpac Townsville 400 takes place from July 5-7, while Perkins will again partner James Courtney at Mobil 1 Mega Racing at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, Vodafone Gold Coast 600, and Penrite Sandown 500.
