The first season of the operation under the BJR banner, in 2017, saw Blanchard continue with the team albeit with the REC purchased from Super Black Racing.
It came after Jason Bright moved his Britek Motorsport REC, that previously underpinned the CoolDrive entry, to Prodrive Racing Australia.
Blanchard, who had previous stints at Kelly Racing, Dick Johnson Racing and Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport, recorded a best result of 10th at Sydney Motorsport Park.
However, in a year Blanchard finished 22nd overall, the entry's biggest headline was produced by a horrifying Sandown accident for co-driver Todd Hazelwood.
Blanchard returned in 2018, but slumped to 24th overall, his best finish an 11th at Albert Park. At Bathurst, he only managed 18th, and two laps off the pace, with Dale Wood.
Blanchard's full-time retirement, five years after his full-time debut with Dick Johnson Racing, opened the door for Macauley Jones to make his full-time debut in 2019.
Jones, son of BJR owner Brad, had a turbulent season en route to 21st in the standings, with his season punctuated by a heavy accident at the Adelaide season opener.
Not content with retirement, Blanchard returned for a wildcard at the Perth night event, with the former Australian Formula Ford Championship winner steering a striking silver Petronas-backed Commodore out of the BJR garage.
The 2020 season saw Jones finish 19th overall, with his highlight an eighth place finish at Sydney Motorsport Park.
Jones' career-best performance came with the young gun using two sets of soft tyress. It could have been even better, with Jones overtaken on the last lap by Fabian Coulthard.
The final race before the Blanchards went it alone, the 2020 season-ending Bathurst 1000, saw Jones and Blanchard finish 13th, having started 17th.
