A new number and revised livery will be carried by star rookie Jaxon Evans in his maiden full-time Supercars campaign in 2024.

Evans, 27, has replaced Jack Smith in Brad Jones Racing’s SCT Logistics-backed Chevrolet Camaro.

The New Zealander will race SCT’s familiar white and red colours, complete with racing stripes and new red skirts, in this year’s championship. However, BJR has also confirmed a notable change, with Evans to sport the #12.

The #12 was last used by Evans’ countryman Fabian Coulthard between 2016 and 2020 at DJR Team Penske, with the Kiwi taking the number to eight wins.

The #12 has previously been used by the likes of Chaz Mostert, Mark Skaife, Greg Murphy, Kevin Bartlett and Allan Grice. Most importantly, it returns to BJR, where it was used by John Bowe and Andrew Jones, who now heads up SCT's motorsport program.

Smith previously raced with the #4 between 2020 and 2023, with Matt Stone Racing requesting the number for 2024 to help celebrate its Stone Brothers Racing history.

Evans is one of three rookies on the 2024 grid alongside compatriot Ryan Wood (Walkinshaw Andretti United) and Aaron Love (Blanchard Racing Team), and one of five New Zealanders.

The former Porsche star raced with Smith in the 2022 and 2023 enduros, and debuts at Mount Panorama, the site of his last Supercars start last October.

BJR also completes its full suite of 2024 livery reveals, having taken the covers off Macauley Jones’ #96 Pizza Hut Camaro on Tuesday morning.

All four BJR Chevrolets will hit the track for pre-season testing at Winton Motor Raceway on Wednesday February 7.


“Really excited to be representing SCT Logistics, in the striking white and red Camaro for 2024,” Evans said.

“Getting itchy feet waiting to finally kick the year off at our pre-season test. Bathurst is a pretty wild place to have your solo debut — in saying that, it’s the last circuit I drove a Supercar.

“As a Supercars ‘rookie’ there’s a lot of unknowns at present — but, collectively we have clear intentions of what we want to achieve.

“I’m confident in the team and the driving force behind this opportunity.”

Andrew Jones, SCT Logistics Head of Motorsport Programs, believes Evans can take the SCT Motorsport program to new heights this season.

“Jaxon coming in as the primary driver of the SCT Logistics Camaro is a big change for us and affirms the key objectives that we have for this program,” Jones said.

“While Jaxon will carry the status of being a ‘rookie’, the experience that we all have working together as a team over the past two years across the endurance events will absolutely assist in ensuring that we hit our performance targets. 

"When you couple that with his extensive global success, we have no doubt 2024 will be strong for SCT Motorsport.

“Our long time partnership group of Liberty Fuels, Wash It Mobile Truck Washing, Huski Construction Equipment, Gemco Rail and Southern States Group all continue to be a part of our team’s journey and we look forward to building on those relationships."
