Supercars’ top female driver on the move

THE leading female driver in the Supercars pipeline is set to shift to a rival main game team next year.

V8 Sleuth has learnt Elly Morrow is in line to drive for Tickford Racing in the 2023 Dunlop Super2 Series.

Morrow has been affiliated with Brad Jones Racing, debuting in Super3 last year before moving up to the second tier this season.

The 23-year-old currently sits 13th in the Super2 standings, ahead of three drivers to have also contested all five rounds thus far: Ryal Harris, Angelo Mouzouris and Nash Morris.

She was a surprise omission from the Adelaide 500 entry list released last week, with BJR instead fielding debutant Lochie Dalton.

It initially appeared that was a result of Morrow focusing solely on her S5000 Tasman Series duties, rather than engaging in a juggling act between open-wheeler and tin top.

However, it has now become clear that she is departing BJR and likely to join Tickford.

V8 Sleuth understands Morrow recently tested with the Ford squad.

Tickford CEO Tim Edwards has publicly declared his organisation will run multiple Super2 cars next year, when the S550 Mustang is handed down.

Tickford has a proud history in Super2, winning back-to-back titles in 2015-16 courtesy of Cameron Waters and Garry Jacobson.

It’s aiming to make that three crowns this coming weekend, with its young gun Zak Best entering the Adelaide decider just 75 points behind Declan Fraser of Triple Eight Race Engineering.
