Heimgartner features on revised BJR livery

BRAD Jones Racing has shown off the livery spearhead Andre Heimgartner will carry into the Repco Supercars Championship.

Coming off a career-best season, the Kiwi is hungry to rise to new heights now as BJR searches for a drought-breaking victory – its last main game race win coming via Nick Percat in 2020.

“R&J Batteries have pulled together another stunning livery, I’m very excited by the whole paint scheme – if it goes as good as it looks we’re in for a great year,” said Heimgartner.

“We found our stride in the middle of last year and unfortunately weren’t able to capitalise it there at the end, but we’ve all been putting in some serious hours over the summer to come back stronger.

“I’m as ready as ever to get to Bathurst and get racing, this is my ninth year in the category and third year with BJR.

“I’m comfortable with the environment and the team here, I’ve seen what we can do over the last two years and there’s just a few things we needed to clean up which we have.

“So, this year is a big opportunity for us.”

Team owner Brad Jones praised the 28-year-old and his “stunning” livery.

“The R&J Batteries car had a standout performance last year with Andre and it’ll be interesting to see how they start off this year,” said Jones.

“Andre is our elder statesman now, and he’s been very supportive to Bryce (Fullwood), Macca (Jones) and Jaxon (Evans) – it’s such a good working relationship for our team and he’s an incredibly important asset.”

BJR is yet to unveil liveries for Jones and Evans, while Fullwood’s #14 Camaro has retained its trademark Middy’s pink look.
