Josh Fife will become the latest Dunlop Super2 Series driver to test himself against the sport’s biggest names in the BP Supercars All Stars Eseries.

Fife, who is coming through the Supercars pathway via main game team Brad Jones Racing, will line up for the Round 6 action at Circuit of the Americas on Wednesday night.

Last week’s Super2 wildcards made a strong impression at Spa, with Jayden Ojeda qualifying for the ARMOR ALL Top 10 Shootout and Broc Feeney winning the reverse grid race.

Before that, Brodie Kostecki had twice finished on the Bathurst podium while Thomas Randle and Angelo Mouzouris also spent time towards the pointy end of the field – as did Will Brown when filling in for Dave Reynolds in Round 2.

BJR promoted Fife on the back of winning the final Super3 round of 2019, and he’s now excited to make another step up, if only briefly via the iRacing platform.

“I’m really looking forward to being a part of the Eseries and getting the opportunity to verse the main game drivers,” Fife said.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun with some great battles, no doubt.

“I’ve had a Simworx Simulator for two years now and use it before each of my races to learn the track and prepare.

“But since we’ve been in iso [isolation] I have been getting on it a bit more to practice and give me something to do.

“My goal is to be middle of the pack so I’ll be stoked if I’m up around there. I’m competing against the best so I’m just grateful to be involved.

“Thanks to Capital Gas Works and BJR for supporting me for the Eseries. Hopefully I have a great night of racing.”

Given his Super2 race number #14 is already taken by BJR stablemate Todd Hazelwood, Fife is expected to switch to #140 for his Eseries cameo; his livery will be confirmed in the coming days.
