Zak Best will look to carry the momentum of last year's title-challenging campaign into his third season in the Dunlop Super2 Series, which will also feature a third enduro campaign with Tickford Racing.
Best started his career in karts and then moved to Aussie Racing Cars in 2016 where, at age 14, he became the youngest driver to win a race in the series on his way to 12th in the standings.
After a season in the Australian Formula 4 Championship in 2017, Best made his Supercars racing debut in the V8 Touring Car Series with MW Motorsport in 2018. Best recorded second in the standings and returned in an attempt to win the now Super3-branded series in 2019, winning six races but ultimately placing fourth after some costly non-finishes.
He moved up into the second-tier class with MWM in 2020, where a fifth place in the final race at Bathurst secured sixth in the standings.
Best joined Tickford Racing in 2021 and emerged as the closest challenger to eventual champion Broc Feeney. Best broke through for his maiden Super2 Series pole and race win on the streets of Townsville on the way to finishing second in points. Last year, Best took a brace of poles and race wins but his title challenge was brought undone by a non-finish at Wanneroo and a 12th in Townsville where he was saddled with damage from Lap 1 incidents.
He also made his solo Repco Supercars Championship debut with a pair of wildcard appearances, and took a sensational pole position at The Bend.
