Dean Fiore will return with Brad Jones Racing for this year’s Repco Bathurst 1000.

Fiore, who raced for BJR in 2021 alongside Todd Hazelwood, will share the #14 Middy’s Commodore with Bryce Fullwood.

October's Great Race will be Fiore's 14th Bathurst start; he finished eighth with Hazelwood last year.

The veteran is aiming for a third straight Bathurst top 10; he finished sixth with Scott Pye and Team 18 in 2020.

It comes after BJR locked in Dale Wood alongside Andre Heimgartner, and Jordan Boys with Macauley Jones.

"It’s going to be great to drive alongside Bryce this year," Fiore said.

"I met him when he was driving for Nissan driving with Andre actually and I’ve been following his career ever since.

"He seems like a great young bloke and he’s a rising star of the sport.

"I'm also very familiar with [engineer] Phil Keed and worked with him when I was driving with Scotty Pye.

"I absolutely loved working with Phil and we got along great so that combination of Bryce and Phil Keed is one I'm going to be watching with interest as we get closer to the pointy end of the season.

"I’m really looking forward to working with them both."

Fullwood added: "I feel like 2022 is shaping up to have so much potential for us.

"Driving alongside someone like Dean with his experience is going to be great. I’m really excited to see what we can achieve together."

The 2022 Repco Bathurst 1000 will be held on October 9.
