Jake Kostecki stepped into the Dunlop Super2 Series with older brother Kurt in 2016, the pair both racing Triple Eight-built Commodores.
After finishing 18th in the points that year, Kostecki clocked his first Top 10s in Super2 last year, before a crash at Sandown effectively ended his season.
That dropped Kostecki from 17th to an eventual 22nd in the points, but he did team up with Kurt to finish sixth in Bathurst’s 250km non-points race.
Between karting and Super2, Kostecki spent time in Formula Ford, the Suzuki Swift Racing Series and V8 Touring Car Series, garnering experience along the way.
He also made his debut in the Stadium Super Trucks Series last year at Barbagallo Raceway.
