Record label supporting BJR teen rookie

THE Brad Jones Racing Super2 Holden of teen Elliott Cleary will feature branding from a different field of entertainment: the music industry.

Record label Sync Music has taken naming rights on his #19 ZB Commodore, having also announced backing for his 2024 National Trans Am entry.

The connection is understood to have come through the young gun’s father, Patrick “Smiley” Cleary.

Cleary Sr established Neon Records and Peppermint Blue Entertainment in 1999 and remains at the forefront of the latter.

“Being able to reveal the livery is the last piece of the puzzle before I get in the car this weekend, so I’m pretty excited by it all,” said Elliott, who competed in the recently concluded Castrol Toyota Formula Regional Oceania Championship.

“It looks like a fast race car and I’m ready to head out onto the Mountain this weekend.

“I’ve had a whirlwind couple of months with racing in NZ and testing here in Australia but I’ve been looking forward to coming back to Bathurst the whole time.

“Can’t wait to get this season underway.”

That makes for three Coke-backed Super2 Commodores, along with those driven by Cameron McLeod (PremiAir Racing) and Kai Allen (Eggleston Motorsport).

“To have the support from Bowser Bean Cafe for my debut in Super2 is amazing. I cannot thank them enough for coming onboard,” said Gillis.

“The car looks terrific. The BJR guys have not only produced a great looking race car, I know they’ve been hard at work preparing for this weekend.

“Having the back-to-back test days was very useful for the whole squad, so we’re really set up to head into the first round on the front foot.”

Practice at Mount Panorama begins tomorrow.
