Supercars team Brad Jones Racing has announced a Junior Development program with top karting team Tom Williamson Motorsport.
The BJR-TWM Junior Development Team is a driver development program to identify potential future racing drivers and help guide the next generation of motorsport stars.
Ten young karters will be selected by Williamson from around Australia. By becoming part of the TWM/BJR family, they will have the opportunity to attend VASC rounds to see all aspects of the team in operation.
They’ll also have the opportunity to work with Macauley Jones and Tom at specific events as mentors, and have the chance to become the BJR Junior Ambassador at the end of the year.
According to the announcement, this could lead to a test drive in one of the BJR Commodores.
“I have known Tom for over ten years and always been impressed with his gift of being able to maximise young drivers talent” BJR co-owner Brad Jones said.
“We have talked about teaming up over the last few years so I am very proud to announce this initiative with TWM.”
Williamson believes this junior development team is essential to the advancement of our rising young stars.
“I’m happy to be finally getting this program off the ground” he said.
“I consider this to be so important to our next gen of drivers. It takes considerable hard work and determination to be one of the best and with Brad and I’s knowledge, I’m confident we can produce some great talent”.
