All four Brad Jones Racing main game drivers will feature in the upcoming Cash Converters Eseries.

Nick Percat, Todd Hazelwood, Macauley Jones and Jack Smith will team up with Jake Burton, Madison Down and Jackson Souslin-Harlow for the 2021 Eseries.

The six-round Eseries will begin on Wednesday, with drivers fighting for two championships.

Percat, Hazelwood, Jones and Smith will be on a rotating schedule in the All Stars category.

Hazelwood and Jones will compete on Wednesday, with Burton Down and Souslin-Harlow to feature in the Pro Series.

Burton will return for a third campaign with BJR, having finished seventh in 2020.

"I'm stoked to be moving on to my 3rd year with the team and I can't thank Brad and the crew enough for their loyalty and continued commitment,” said Burton, who scored two podiums and six top 10 finishes in 2020.

"My goal for the season is to be consistently in the top five, it's something I should have achieved more regularly last year, but hopefully I can utilise the fantastic resources available to me at BJR, including the engineering team that I grew close to in 2020, to ensure that this goal becomes a reality this year."

Down returns for a second BJR campaign, having finished third last year.

"It’s a great feeling to be back with Brad Jones Racing again for 2021,” Down said.

"Brad and the whole team at BJR were incredible last year, In what was a fantastic year, achieving a solid third place result in the championship, we’ll be working as a team to build on those results for 2021.

"The engineering team last year, particularly Tony Woodward and Andrew Edwards were a huge help behind the scenes, ensuring that we always had the competitive advantage over our rivals.

"The continuity that we have in the team will be a massive help in our pursuit of podiums.

"My goal for this season is to be consistently fighting for race wins and podiums.

"We also need to ensure we recognise our strength and that has been the consistency, so it will be important to manage the risk versus reward as well in what will be a super competitive season. I can't wait to get to work."

Souslin-Harlow also returns for a second BJR campaign.

"I’m really looking forward to returning to the Eseries this year with BJR for my second year," he said.

"Last year was a big eye opener on how competitive everyone was. I’m super thankful to everyone at BJR for giving me another opportunity for a second year running.

"I will be giving it all I have this year to achieve some consistent results working together with Jake, Madison and the BJR Supercar drivers to push each other forward each race."
