Another ZB Commodore moves from main game to Super2

ANOTHER former Repco Supercars Championship Commodore ZB looks set to make the move into the Dunlop Super2 Series for 2023.

The ZB Commodore raced by Jack Le Brocq in this year’s ‘main game’ in Truck Assist colours for Matt Stone Racing is set to become Nash Morris’ new ride next year.

The chassis, originally built by Triple Eight as a VF in 2014 and raced by Craig Lowndes, was converted into a ZB for Brodie and Jake Kostecki to race as a wildcard in the Bathurst, Gold Coast and Sandown Enduro Cup events in 2019.

It was shared between Jake Kostecki and Zane Goddard as a ‘SuperLite’ entry in 2020 before it was driven by Kostecki full-time in 2021 and Le Brocq this year.

Morris’ father Paul shared an Instagram story yesterday of the car, still in #34 Truck Assist/Le Brocq livery and decals but minus engine, at the Norwell Motorplex’s workshop with Nash also appearing in the videos.

A late starter in racing, Nash has been making up for lost time and won the 2021 Super3 Series in an FG Falcon.

He made the step into the Super2 Series this year in an FG X Falcon that was originally built by Ford Performance Racing and run by PMM for Anton De Pasquale in 2019 and Shae Davies in 2020.

Morris endured a tough debut season in Super2 and finished 17th in the final pointscore.

The season-ending round in Adelaide resulted in Morris’ best round finish of the 2022 series, eighth overall on points.

The 2023 Dunlop Super2 Series will begin at the Thrifty Newcastle 500 on March 10-12.
