  • Bryce Fullwood, Middy's Electrical commit to BJR for 2024

  • Fullwood is ninth in the championship with one round to go in 2023

  • Darwin-born driver has signed a two-year contract extension

The 2024 Repco Supercars Championship continues to take shape, with Bryce Fullwood committing to a contract extension with Brad Jones Racing.

The 2019 Super2 champion joined BJR in 2022 after a two-year stint with Walkinshaw Andretti United.

Fullwood will remain with BJR for at least two more years, with the Darwin-born driver to stick with the Albury squad until the end of 2025.

Major backer Middy’s Electrical will also remain with BJR, with the company sponsoring Fullwood through the ranks and into the main game.

The contract extension is reward for Fullwood’s excellent form in 2023, which has seen the 25-year-old hold ninth in the drivers’ championship with one round remaining. Fullwood has scored 11 top 10 finishes, and scored another top 10 finish at Mount Panorama with Dean Fiore.

Fullwood and teammate Andre Heimgartner are set to deliver BJR’s first double top 10 in the drivers’ standings since 2013, with the team also third in the teams’ championship.

It officially locks in half of BJR’s four-car line-up, with Heimgartner set to continue for a third season. The Kiwi is sixth in the standings, and has been a regular of the podium this year.

Macauley Jones and Jack Smith the other two drivers in BJR’s line-up, and have yet to confirm their 2024 plans.

“It’s awesome to be back with BJR for next year. So far 2023 has been a great showing of what we are capable of,” Fullwood said.

"We have a really good, solid crew on our car and I have a lot of faith in what they’re able to achieve and we have a great base from this year to build from.

“It’s even better to continue to have Middy’s Electrical with us for 2024, they’ve been with me and my family for as long as I can remember, and I couldn’t be more excited to have them with us for next year. 


"I’m so grateful for the support from everyone at Middy’s — they really are just one big family and it’s great to be a part of it.

“I can’t thank Nicholas and Anton Middendorp and the Middendorp family enough for everything they’ve done for me and for the team.”

Team owner Jones said: “Bryce has performed exceptionally this year. Keeping him in the BJR fold was important to us, we all work so well together, and he’s shown throughout this year what is achievable.

“There have been a lot of new challenges thrown at Bryce this year and he’s handled them incredibly well. I’m proud to see the development and growth of Bryce as a driver and he’s a valuable asset for us. 

“Middy’s Electrical and BJR have many, many similarities in the way we run our businesses and our core values of family, loyalty and trust. It is an honour to be able to work beside them on-and-off track to achieve our goals.

“2023 has been a challenging year in many respects but it has also been incredibly rewarding — to see our entire team pull together four brand new cars and be where we are now in the championship has been very satisfying. It’s a testament to our team that Middy’s are continuing their support for another year.

“Nicholas and Anton have been excellent partners over the last two years, I cannot thank them enough for their support of our team and their faith in us.”

Middy’s Electrical Director Nicholas Middendorp added: “On behalf of Co-Director my cousin Anton Middendorp, and the entire Middy’s team, we are thrilled to continue our commitment to Bryce Fullwood and our partnership with Brad Jones Racing as the naming rights sponsor for the 2024 Supercar Championship.

"Having been a steadfast supporter of Bryce since his early racing days, we take immense pride in our enduring 12-year relationship. Middy’s is dedicated to maintaining this strong bond with Bryce.

"We are looking forward to collaborating once more with Brad Jones  and the team at Brad Jones Racing, an organisation that shares our core values as a family-owned and operated business. The 2024 Supercar series holds great promise, and we can't wait to be a part of it."

The 2023 season will conclude at the VAILO Adelaide 500 on November 23-26.
