Brad Jones Racing Enters V8 Touring Car Series

2016 Kumho V8 Touring Car Series welcomes Brad Jones Racing.

Brad Jones Racing Enters V8 Touring Car Series - the Brad Jones Racing team will enter the Commodore previously driven by Andrew Jones in the Dunlop Series.

Brad Jones Racing will expand its Australian motorsport presence in 2016 by fielding a car in the popular Kumho Tyre Australian V8 Touring Car Series.

In 2016 the team will become the first to field cars in all three levels of V8 racing – V8 Supercars, Dunlop Series and Kumho Series. For the Kumho Series the team will enter the Alliance Truck Parts Commodore previously driven in the Dunlop Series by Andrew Jones.

Brad Jones Racing makes its first foray into the Kumho V8 Touring Car Series in 2016.

Fielding three V8SC entries, three cars in the DVS and one in the Kumho Series, team owner, Brad Jones, says having a car in the Kumho Series category will help develop the next generation of V8 Supercars drivers.

“The thing I like most about the Kumho Series is that it is an opportunity to drive a V8 Supercar without the massive pressures that come from being in the V8 Supercars Championship and Dunlop Series,”

“It is perfect for someone new to the sport that wants to be a touring car driver rather than going through the open wheeler route as they can be learning what makes a touring car work from day one.

“We are excited to be involved with the Kumho Series.”
