Formula Ford gun makes leap to Supercars

FORMULA Ford star Jordyn Sinni will make the jump to Supercars in next year’s Dunlop Super2 Series with Eggleston Motorsport.

The 20-year-old Victorian racked up an impressive resume in karting before graduating to circuit racing at age 14 in Hyundai Excels and has been racing Formula Fords for the past three seasons.

He claimed outright round wins in each of the past two seasons in a privateer team run by Sinni and his father Paul.

Sinni is the latest driver to be confirmed at Eggleston Motorsport for next year’s Super2 season, joining Porsche Carrera Cup racer Cooper Murray and Super3 graduate Kai Allen.

“A huge thanks to Eggleston Motorsport for welcoming me into the team, Christmas has certainly come early for me!” Sinni said.  

“I am over the moon to be joining such a professional race team with such good history.

“It is still a pinch myself moment, and I am not sure it will seem real until we roll out at Newcastle for Round 1. I am so keen to get into testing and start putting in the hard work from day 1.

“I can’t thank my sponsors and family enough for everything they have all contributed to help me get to this point.

“I am looking forward to working with Ben, Rachael and the entire team to put our best foot forward and score some good results.”

Sinni sampled one of Eggleston Motorsport’s cars at a Winton test day recently and impressed the squad with how quickly he came to grips with the machine.

“He showed instant natural ability and speed which is a massive plus for any race team. We can teach all the other parts!,” EMS co-owner and team manager Rachael Eggleston said.

“We have always been a big supporter of Formula Ford as a lead into Supercars, it is such a strong breeding ground and we can certainly pick the drivers who have progressed through the Formula Ford ranks.

“We are very excited to see what Jordyn can do in his rookie season, the test days in February can’t come soon enough.”

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