The SCT Motor Sport Team is excited to announce that Ash Walsh will partner with Jack Smith for this season’s Repco Bathurst 1000. 


The talented 33 year old Walsh is no stranger to Mountain Panorama with 6 Bathurst 1000 starts and 52 Supercar races. 


The Bathurst partnership will also mark a return to Brad Jones Racing - Walsh driving for the team in the Enduro Cup from 2016 to 2019. 


“I’m looking forward to being back on the grid this year at the Mountain and returning to BJR and joining Jack and the SCT crew,” Walsh said. 


“I’ve known Jack for a while now, we met through super 2 when he started with BJR and we raced together in 2019 and since then we’ve been good mates on and off track, so I’m looking forward to sharing the car with him at Bathurst. 


“The Bathurst 1000 is one of those races where you never know what’s going to happen and anyone on that grid can cross the finish line first so you just buckle in and see where you come out at the other end. Fingers crossed we have a good campaign and conquer the mountain with a good position at the end of it.”


SCT Motor Sport Team regular driver Jack Smith is pleased to partner with Walsh, “It’s great to have Ash on board for Bathurst,” Smith said. 


“Bathurst is undoubtedly my favourite event of the year so to have Ash join me will be great. I’ve been racing against him for a few years now, he fits in well with the team as he has already raced with BJR before so it’ll be great to have him a part of SCT too. 


“Ash is reliable and won’t hold back, I feel like I can learn a lot from him while he’s a part of the team. We just got a taste of the mountain last weekend so I can’t wait to get back there again later in the year and give it another crack!”


The Repco Bathurst 1000 is set for October 7-10 and the SCT Motor Sport Facebook page will keep you up to date with developments through the Supercars season.
