“After starting off with a good round at Adelaide, I really wanted to press on but obviously we didn’t get that chance,” Kostecki told Supercars.com.
“It will be great to be back in the car at SMP, I just can’t wait to get back in the Eggleston Motorsport Commodore.”
Just 22 years of age, he has not been behind the wheel of his #38 VF Commodore since Adelaide but that’s not to say he hasn’t been able to keep his eye in.
“I actually had a chance to go back to home in Queensland and go do some laps in Norwell and go do a bit of coaching and all that sort of stuff,” said Kostecki.
“So I’ve been able to stay fit in that sort of direction but I also raced at SMP last weekend in a Hyundai Excel, so I’ve just been trying to get as many miles under my belt as I can during these tough times.”
With a $400,000 prize attached to the Super2 title, to be used towards securing a 2021 main game seat, Kostecki is throwing everything at his campaign.
“My only objective is to win, so that’s all I’m focusing on,” he said.
“I’ve got a championship to win so I just need to press on with what we did at Adelaide and just replicate it.”
Originally from Perth before moving to southeast Queensland and more recently down to Melbourne – not to mention an earlier stint in the US – Kostecki was part of the fleet to rush across the NSW border on Monday.
“I know I’ll be in Sydney for two weeks so I can add that to the list of towns that I live in. I’m a bit of a gypsy!” he laughed.
The combined Dunlop Super2 and Super3 fields will contest two 18-lap races at the Truck Assist Sydney SuperSprint on July 18-19.
