Jack Perkins will make a Dunlop Super2 Series return for Eggleston Motorsport at this weekend’s WD-40 Townsville SuperSprint.

Perkins was a popular member of last weekend’s broadcast team, and will return to the Eggleston entry he was due to steer at Winton in May.

A main game race winner and Bathurst 1000 podium finisher, Perkins won races for Eggleston in 2013, and claimed a Sandown podium in 2019.

He also raced the #54 entry at the Adelaide and Sydney events last year, and will co-drive alongside Will Brown at Erebus Motorsport for October’s Repco Bathurst 1000.

Last weekend, Tim Blanchard drove the third Eggleston entry to second overall behind winner Broc Feeney.

It was the first of two rounds in the development series for Blanchard in preparation for a co-drive with Tim Slade.

Perkins will now step in the Triple Eight Race Engineering-built Commodore which Blanchard drive.

Perkins joins Matt McLean and Jack Sipp in the Eggleston line-up, McLean again taking home Lets Go Motorhomes Rookie of the Round honours.

The Super2 and Super3 fields will roll out for Practice 1 at 8:50am AEST on Saturday morning in Townsville.
