Dunlop Super2 Series stalwart Adam Marjoram has announced his retirement from professional motorsport.

The 26-year-old from Western Australia was last month confirmed to have lost his seat at Image Racing, the Terry Wyhoon-led outfit opting to retain rising star Jordan Boys alongside recruit Will Brown.

Marjoram took to social media to announce he will hang up the helmet after four Super2 seasons.

He had previously competed in the old V8 Ute series, placing fourth overall in 2015.

Read his full statement below:

I have decided to hang up the helmet on my professional racing career. It has been a decision that I have slowly made over the past few months starting in December.

I was fortunate enough to be presented some excellent options to race in 2020 with exciting prospects and with some amazing sponsors, but I feel it was best for me to focus on my businesses at Auto One Morley along with my social media clients and start to pave another life as well.

Racing has been my whole life and I started karting when I was 6, so since 2002 I have raced ever year. It will be a bit of a change in lifestyle, and I may even re-open the door to something in 2021, but it will not be in a professional sense towards Supercars.

I am very fortunate to have met some amazing people through karting, Saloon Cars, Porsches, V8 Utes and Super2. I have made lifelong friends, and I have enjoyed sharing every moment of my career to date with you all.

I must take this time as well to thank everyone for your ongoing support in the good times and the bad. Sharing moments with everyone here has been a special part of the sport for me, and it wouldn't be the same if I was alone in the journey. I must also thank you all for supporting my sponsors who have supported this sport through myself. That support keeps the sport going!!

I must thank every single sponsor along the way through my career for their support, as I don't come from a family of unlimited wealth, I have relied upon the support of many of my sponsors who I believe over the years have tipped in north of $2.5m into my career. I can hand on heart say that I have worked my bum off to provide value and have loved working with some iconic companies!

I have some moments I will cherish for a lifetime from motorsport, and I am excited to start another chapter! I am very lucky to go out on my own terms, not relating to budget or lack of opportunity!

I will still be around here and there, and you never know what the future holds with regards to motorsport... am still looking very slightly at something else for next year, but no promises!

Oh, and I will still post up the Dad jokes. You are all stuck with that.
