Nash Morris has completed his first laps aboard his upgraded Ford Falcon FG X.

The 2021 Super3 champion took to the Ford at Queensland Raceway on Wednesday.

It marked another key step in the second-generation racer's preparations for his first Dunlop Super2 Series campaign.

The Falcon was raced to two race wins in the 2017 Super2 season by Anton De Pasquale.

Morris, 18, was supported by De Pasquale and father Paul at the Ipswich venue.

The teenager was beaming after he recorded his first kilometres aboard the #67 Falcon.

"It’s been running pretty smoothly," Morris told Supercars.com.

"We haven’t had too many problems, just trying to tune the car and of course tune myself.

"But it’s been a good productive first day.

"It’s quite a different car to the Super3 car; it’s got the independent rear end.

"There’s a few different driving techniques that I’ve got to get used to, but it’s a good car."

Wednesday’s running comes after Morris recorded a clean sweep at the opening TA2 Muscle Car Series round last weekend.


Morris will also contest the Trans AM and TA2 categories in 2022.

He will be one of seven rookies to feature in the season-opening Sydney event on March 4-6.

Morris, Matt Payne, Elly Morrow, Thomas Maxwell, Cameron Crick, Jay Hanson and Cameron Hill have joined the Super2 grid.

The Super2 Series is Morris' next step in his mission to one day reach the Repco Supercars Championship.

"We don’t have any expectations for this year," Morris continued.

"Being a privately-run team, we are just going to go in there and do the best we can.

"We have seen guys like Broc Feeney, for example, do Super3 and win that, do Super2 and win that, and now he has moved on.

"So that’s the obvious stepping stone that you’ve got to use to reach the ultimate goal which is Supercars.

"I think with the competition this year, this is going to be one of the best years we have seen in a while it looks like a big grid.

"I’m just excited to get into to it, it’s a big step up but I’m ready."

The six-event 2022 Dunlop Series will commence in Sydney in March.
