The toughest of initiations greeted Jack Smith to the world of Supercars.

At just 17, he visited Mount Panorama for his Dunlop Super2 Series debut… and was promptly bitten by a big crash at the Dipper that left his Paul Morris Motorsport-run Falcon in tatters.

Smith though has bounced back time and time again, gathering experience to prepare him for a maiden Virgin Australia Supercars Championship campaign in 2020.

That same year as his Bathurst shunt, Smith drove in the Australian Formula 4 Championship and Australian GT Trophy Series.

From there, he was picked up by Brad Jones Racing and instantly repaid them with the 2017 Super3 title while also juggling Super2 duties.

That triumph laid the platform for him to focus his full attention on the second-tier, still with BJR. He took a third at Symmons Plains and finished 10th in the 2018 championship.

Progress last year proved a fraction more difficult as he balanced Super2 commitments with top-flight wildcards at Symmons Plains, Winton, Darwin and The Bend – and then a maiden PIRTEK Enduro Cup campaign for Matt Stone Racing.

With all that under his belt, Smith and BJR feel the time is right to move their relationship to the big stage.

The Gold Coaster will run the #4 he used in his wildcard outings and continue in the familiar colours of SCT Logistics.
