Jones/Boys BJR Bathurst livery breaks cover

The new-look #96 ZB Commodore

BRAD Jones Racing has taken the covers off the #96 ZB Commodore which Macauley Jones and Jordan Boys will steer in the 2022 Repco Bathurst 1000.

Wet & Forget has taken naming rights for the Great Race, with long-time Boys backer Joss Group also coming aboard.

“We have a long-standing relationship with Rod and Dave from Wet & Forget, they’ve supported us for a number of years so it’s great to have them onboard as a naming rights sponsor, particularly for such a big event like Bathurst,” said team owner Brad Jones.

“Joss Group supporting Macca and Jordan is also fantastic to see – two Albury boys in an Albury-based team with the backing of an Albury-based business.

“This doesn’t happen very often, so we want to do them proud!”

Wet & Forget retail operations manager Dave Hookey added: “We’re excited to be joining Macauley and Jordan for their Bathurst 1000 attack and to be showcasing Wet & Forget to the people of Australia and indeed the world on the #96 car!

“The car looks absolutely fantastic; this is the biggest race of the Supercar series, and we cannot wait to see the guys take on the Mount Panorama circuit!”

Next weekend’s race will be Jones Jr’s eighth Bathurst 1000 start, from which his best result is seventh in 2018 (with Nick Percat).

For Boys, it will be his second attempt, having debuted in 2020 alongside Todd Hazelwood.

Jones holds 19th in the championship standings.
