Carrera Cup champion locks in 2024 campaign

CARRERA Cup Australia champion Harri Jones will vie for his second series crown next year – but this time with his own team.

Jones won the 2022 title with McElrea Racing before heading overseas to contest this season’s Porsche Supercup – a prestigious Formula 1 support category – as well as Carrera Cup Germany.

The Queenslander finished a respectable ninth in the Supercup standings before returning home to contest the Bathurst and Gold Coast rounds of Carrera Cup Australia with Jones Motorsport.

Jones and his team are now confirmed for the full 2024 season, with the 24-year-old to juggle driver, team manager and coach duties.

“I have a massive passion for motorsport and that goes beyond just driving the car,” he said.

“I see some exciting opportunities to innovate and develop a team that can help drivers in all aspects of their career.”

“Personally, I feel I can bring something quite unique to the team.

“I of course have a background as a driver, having won multiple championship on the Porsche Motorsport Pyramid, but I also have years of experience as a driver coach and engineer, and have learned a lot from my time over in Europe this year.”

Jones described his 2023 campaign abroad as “better than I could’ve ever imagined” but labelled Carrera Cup Australia as his favourite category.

Jones Motorsport started in style at Bathurst, taking pole position and three second-place finishes. They’ll be back at it this weekend on the Gold Coast.

“I’d heard about all of the hard work the team had been putting in whilst I was overseas,” said Jones.

“But when we arrived at Bathurst and I witnessed it all paying off for our debut on track, it was just amazing.

“There’s a lot more to come and I know we are just getting started on what will be an incredible journey.”
