- Blackwoods Racing and Freightliner Racing
Brad and Kim Jones have tasted success with their own team in just about every category they have raced in.
Whether it was AUSCAR, NASCAR, production cars or two-litre Super Tourers, they know what it takes to earn race wins.
The brothers from Albury moved into Supercars in 2000, expanded to a two-car team in ’02 and then made the switch from Fords to Holdens six seasons later.
When the Car of the Future platform was introduced in 2013 it had a strong year as one of the quickest to get on top of the new technology.
Brad Jones Racing won races in four consecutive seasons from 2013, and finished fourth in the teams’ championship in ’14 and ’15.
Tim Slade has already tasted success with BJR following his arrival in 2016, with fellow South Australian Nick Percat looking to do the same after a tough first season last year.
The team also runs the Cooldrive Racing entry driven by Tim Blanchard, fields three cars in the Dunlop Super2 Series and won the third-tier V8 Touring Car Series in 2017.
