‘Unfinished business’ driving Fullwood

BRYCE Fullwood will carry familiar colours into the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship as he strives to build on a career year.

Fullwood proved a far better match for Brad Jones Racing lead driver Andre Heimgartner than in 2022, helping the Albury squad to third in the teams’ championship.

The Darwin product was on for a maiden top 10 ranking in the drivers’ points too until dropping to 11th at the final round – an outcome he’s keen to avenge.

“Looking at the Middy’s Camaro and I can’t wait to just get into it. I think we left 2023 with some unfinished business and I’m just keen to get racing again,” said Fullwood.

“It’s a looker for sure, the car was stunning on track and I’m excited to keep the same style, you don’t want to change when you’ve got a good thing going.

“Middy’s has an iconic style and that’s really down to how great their branding is. I’m so thankful for all the support I get from everyone there, especially from Nicholas and Anton Middendorp.

“They’ve made it possible for me to go racing for the last 12 years and I am so grateful to them for that.

“We had some really good moments last year, (engineer) Phil Keed and I were able to really gel and that’s very important to get right.

“So we’ve got all the basics down and it’s time to just get going.”

Team owner Brad Jones added there was little reason to change the appearance of the #14 Middy’s Camaro.

“Middy’s felt for this year there’s no reason to make big wholesale changes to a livery that’s already captured the fans’ attention, you certainly can’t miss it on circuit,” he explained.

“Bryce and the team made really positive progress in the championship last year and I am looking forward to seeing what can be done to build on that in 2024.

“Middy’s is an incredible partner to work with and we have many exciting projects in the pipeline again for this year.”

BJR has a near unchanged driver/engineer line-up across its four cars, with the only difference being Jaxon Evans taking over from the retired Jack Smith in the SCT entry.
