Super2 rookie’s deadline to ‘get noticed’

Dunlop Super2 Series rookie Zane Morse has flagged a two-year timeline to be picked up for higher honours.

Morse last month announced his step up to the second-tier grid from the Toyota 86 Racing Series, competing for privateer team Brema Group Racing.

The Wamboin-based operation, nearby the ACT, showed off the livery for the ex-Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport Holden during test days at Winton on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The 20-year-old is well aware of the challenges that come with a rookie season but hopes to learn enough throughout 2020 to truly make his mark next year.

“We’re a privateer team right now, it’s more just family-orientated so my way of thinking is this year is our definite learning year and then next year we want to be in the top five,” Morse told Supercars.com.

“That’s our goal, to remain in the top five and hopefully get noticed because to be honest, with our current funding and all the sponsors we have – they’re really helpful – it’s just I don’t think we’re going to manage a third year.

“That’s why we’re trying to do our absolute best.”

That ups the ante for Morse’s campaign ahead, given many eventual Supercars graduates have spent four or more years cutting their teeth in the development series.

Among the drivers on the 2020 main game grid to have done so are Cameron Waters, Bryce Fullwood, Macauley Jones, Todd Hazelwood, Jack Le Brocq and Garry Jacobson.

Morse, though, is determined to fast-track his progress and is looking forward to racing against the likes of Will Brown, Thomas Randle and Jack Perkins – each of whom have at least one Supercars podium to their name.

“It will be absolutely amazing,” Morse said.

“I haven’t raced Will Brown in a very long time. It will be very good to race against everyone and try to learn as much as I can from their experiences.

“I just have got to try to pick up as much as I can from them.”

The Dunlop Super2 Series will begin at the Superloop Adelaide 500 from February 20-23.
