Brad Jones Racing’s up and coming star, Josh Fife, will make the next step in his career by moving up from Super3 to the Dunlop Super2 Series for 2020.
The 19-year old young gun has shown exceptional talent throughout his debut season of Super3 and the move into Super2 was only natural after multiple race wins and a 5th in the Championship standings.
Fife started forging his path into Supercars after an impressive eight-year stint in karting, where he became the youngest ever driver to win two of the most prestigious Australian Karting titles - KZ2 and DD2 - in 2017. Josh also finished 5th at the SKUSA nationals in Las Vegas in the highly respected S1 class and was voted by his peers as Driver’s Driver for the Australian Kart Championship series.
Josh is set to race alongside a mix of upcoming drivers and stalwarts of the series, making it one of the most highly anticipated and competitive fields the championship has ever seen. With a new $500,000 scholarship prize pool up for grabs in 2020 including the “Rookie Class” Championship, it is going to make for some great on track battles.
The season commences in front of the Supercars audience for the 20th anniversary of the category, at the Superloop Adelaide 500, and goes on to feature at seven Supercar rounds. The finale will take place on the streets of Newcastle at the final round of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
“I am really excited to step up to Super2 with Brad Jones Racing in 2020,” said Fife. “I’m thankful for this opportunity and the new challenges it will bring. It’s a big step up from Super3, and I’m really looking forward to getting to race on street circuits. The field is full of very talented drivers so it will be a great chance for me to increase my skill level. I can’t thank Brad, Kim and my sponsors enough for the opportunity and I can’t wait to kick off the season.”
Team owner Brad Jones is looking forward to the year ahead, “I’m really excited at the prospect of Josh joining us and moving up into Super2. We finished the year off with his first win in Super3 and I feel like he’s going to be in a good position to fight for the Rookie of the Year Championship and I can’t wait for the season to start.”
Stay tuned in the new year for a further announcement showcasing Josh’s livery for the 2020 Super2 season ahead.
