Brad Jones Racing is pleased to announce that Dean Fiore will partner Todd Hazelwood at the 2021 Bathurst 1000.
37 year old Fiore comes to the team with a vast amount of experience and Hazelwood is excited to share the BJR Supercar with the talented West Australian.
“I’m really pumped to have Dean Fiore join me and the team at this year’s Bathurst 1000,” Hazelwood said.
“Dean has a huge amount of knowledge and experience in the Supercars Championship and I think we’ll make a really strong combination for the great race.
“2021 is my best opportunity yet at the Mountain and I’m really excited to see what we can achieve together.”
Fiore has competed in 90 Supercar rounds and 172 races, which includes 12 Bathurst 1000 starts, debuting at Mt Panorama in 2009.
“I’m very excited to be teaming up with Todd and BJR,” Fiore said.
“I’ve been watching the races and keeping up with Todd’s progress, a lot of people in motorsport speak very highly of Todd. I like working with people that have a good reputation in the sport. I’m keen to build on our relationship throughout the year and can’t wait for Bathurst. Hopefully it’s a successful one for us.
“Brad was one of the first people I met at the beginning of my motorsport journey. He employed me as an instructor when he ran the Audi Driver Experience for Audi. I’ve maintained a great friendship with him ever since.
“I’m looking forward to getting over to the Workshop in Albury as soon as I can. I’ve got a strong connection with Albury with my wife growing up there and were we got married. My father in law still resides there on the farm and my family and I look forward to going there as much as we can. I’ll be in the workshop with Todd and the team as much as I physically can in the lead up to Bathurst. I’m excited!”
Hazelwood and Fiore will work closely together in the lead up to the great race on Sunday October 10th. Stay tuned for Car #14 Bathurst livery.
