Petronas Mustang for BRT’s Super2 debut

THE Blanchard Racing Team will make its Dunlop Super2 Series debut in Petronas colours.

The Box Hill squad’s Ford Mustang will be driven by Porsche graduate Aaron Love, as BRT expands its operations beyond its single car in the main game.

“I’m really excited about the season kicking off soon and it’s definitely going to be a year where we’re all going to put in 110 percent,” said Love.

“We’re running a new car for Super2 and the field has a lot of depth with many of the drivers holding a good amount of experience in these cars already so it will be tough, but with BRT being the team that is, I know that we are well prepared.

“Having Petronas Lubricants’ support for the year is definitely a pleasure and really cool thing for the team and myself, especially when we know its history and the success it has had internationally in motorsport.”

It’s not the first chapter in the relationship between Petronas and the Blanchards, BRT boss Tim Blanchard having run a Supercars wildcard in similar colours at the 2019 Perth SuperNight.

“We are thrilled to welcome Aaron and Petronas Lubricants to BRT for 2023,” said Blanchard.

“We are excited to be launching our Super 2 program with a rising star in Aaron, supported by a well-known brand such as Petronas Lubricants.

“This is an important step for BRT and we are looking forward to what we can achieve this year.”

Blanchard has flagged plans to run a two-car Repco Supercars Championship team as soon as 2024.

BRT made waves this off-season by becoming the first team to shake down a Gen3 race car.
