The 2016 Dunlop Super2 Series winner Garry Jacobson carries the number one into the 2017 season after a breakout year with Prodrive Racing (Australia), claiming the team’s second Dunlop Super2 Series title in two years.

In his first year with Prodrive, Jacobson took home four race wins, multiple round wins and six pole positions, with the aim of improving further in 2017.

A national and state karting champion, Jacobson first showed tin-top potential back in 2009 where he competed in the Aussie Racing Cars National Championship. He then shifted his focus to open wheelers, entering the Victorian Formula Ford Championship in 2010 before graduating to the national championship the following year, which he contested until 2013.

Jacobson first entered the Dunlop Super2 Series in 2013 with Sonic Motor Racing following success in openwheelers, finishing 17th in his debut season. Joining Eggleston Motorsport the following year, the Shepparton local recorded strong results throughout the year to finish the season 11th in the standings.

Another positive year with Eggleston in 2015 saw the rising star enter the top 10 in the series, finishing sixth before making the move to Campbellfield-based PRA.

He makes his PIRTEK Enduro Cup debut with PRA this year, co-driving alongside Jason Bright.
