Kurt Kostecki is determined to succeed in Supercars after a taste of main game competition in 2016.

The young gun - then just 18 - unexpectedly subbed in for an injured Lee Holdsworth with Preston Hire Racing for two mid-season events, in his own Triple Eight-built Commodore.

Kostecki got up to speed quickly despite minimal practice time on the Townsville street circuit, with his best result coming at Queensland Raceway with 21st.

That came during his first full Dunlop Super2 Series campaign with his family-run operation, which followed one start in 2014 and four in ’15.

The West Aussie finished 16th in the Super2 standings in 2016 and then eighth last year, finishing fourth twice as he chases a maiden race podium.

With an extensive racing background - including Late Model racing in the US - Kostecki juggles his racing with a job as a mechanic with Triple Eight, and was involved in testing Holden’s new ZB Commodore.
