New Penrite Racing co-driver Brodie Kostecki will spearhead Eggleston Motorsport’s Dunlop Super2 Series campaign next year.
Kostecki effectively replaces Image Racing-bound Will Brown and is looking to capitalise on a positive 2019 by launching a challenge for the second-tier crown.
The 22-year-old hit the ground running this year with a Super2 win on the streets of Adelaide before soon focusing his attention on a PIRTEK Enduro Cup campaign with cousin Jake Kostecki.
There, Brodie produced a couple of fine displays including an eighth place finish in the wet primary driver sprint race at Sandown.
Eggleston team co-owner and manager Rachael Eggleston is delighted to secure Kostecki’s services.
"We have always held Brodie in very high regards as a driver ever since he debuted in the series in an older spec car and always punched well above his weight,” she said.
“When he beat Paul Dumbrell at Sandown in 2018, it certainly showed us that he was going to be one to watch in the future.
“Brodie's technical knowledge of the car is probably unrivalled in the Super2 paddock, so to have a driver who understands exactly what the car is doing mechanically and is so interested and involved in the set-up and running of the car is a huge plus in our books.
“He has also shown his skills and passion in mentoring younger and aspiring drivers so he will also be a big asset for his teammates who will no doubt learn a lot from him.”
Kostecki made clear of his excitement to join the squad, which runs Triple Eight-built Commodores.
