Dunlop Super2 Series points leader Brodie Kostecki is the first wildcard confirmed for Wednesday night’s final round of the BP Supercars All Stars Eseries.
Kostecki is an experienced user of iRacing, the platform used for the BP Eseries. He created the car set-ups for the Ford Mustang and Holden Commodore, which are not adjustable for the drivers.
In his single wildcard appearance in Round Three at Mount Panorama, Kostecki was runner up twice and claimed a 10th place finish in the reverse grid race.
The 22-year old has also been acting as spotter throughout the series for his Penrite Racing PIRTEK Enduro Cup teammate, Anton De Pasquale – who is now fourth on the Coates Hire Leaderboard.
That teamwork will be put to the side on Wednesday night though, with Kostecki confirming on Instagram that he will race the same Yuasa Erebus Commodore in the final races of the Eseries. More wildcards will be announced in coming days.
West Australian Kostecki who now resides on the Gold Coast, leads the Dunlop Super2 Series by just two points ahead of Thomas Randle heading into the restart of the 2020 DS2 Series, scheduled to take place at Winton next month.
Dunlop Super2 Series wildcards have been a revelation in the 10-week virtual tournament. Rookie Broc Feeney was the first wildcard to win a virtual race (Reverse Grid, Spa) Kostecki claimed second twice at Bathurst, while last week Jordan Boys claimed a podium result at Michigan.
Drivers will race at two of Australia’s most iconic tracks in the final round of the BP Eseries: Oran Park and Mount Panorama.
Shane van Gisbergen leads the points table by 78 points from Scott McLaughlin heading into the final races. They are the only two drivers who can claim the title.
Qualifying begins at 6pm and will be broadcast exclusively on Fox Sports 506 before racing begins at 7pm and will be broadcast live on Fox Sports, Kayo, Sky Sports (NZ), 10 play, Twitch, Youtube and Supercars’ Facebook Pages.
