18 December 2023

Jaxon Evans will drive the Brad Jones Racing-run SCT Motorsport Chevrolet Camaro in the 2024 Supercars Championship, replacing Jack Smith.

Evans was co-driver to Smith in the SCT Logistics Supercar in the endurance events over the last two years, making the step up to full-time driving in 2024.

In 2018 the 27-year-old claimed his first championship in Porsche Carrera Cup Australia with six victories. From there Evans moved to Europe, racing with Porsche across multiple series including the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, where he claimed victories, also going on to win the Porsche Carrera Cup German and French titles.

The Kiwi driver will be based in Australia as he focuses on the 2024 Supercars campaign amid other racing commitments.

“Very excited for the opportunity to join the Supercars grid full time,” said Evans.

“Having started my racing career here – returning to Australia at some stage has always been an aspiration.

“Supercars produces some of the closest and most exciting racing – a massive attraction for any driver here or overseas.

“Of course a big change in scenery, but an exciting one – I think the challenge of something new is a situation I thrive in, so I can’t wait to get going.

“This opportunity gives me the chance to expand my profile as a complete driver and still engage with the GT and endurance racing I have been doing for the past 4 years in Europe and the USA.

“I have to extend a massive thank you to SCT logistics, the Smith family and Andrew Jones for placing their trust in my ability to perform both on and off the track.

“There are many moving parts in the background, so a big thank you as well to my support network here in Australia.”

Team owner Brad Jones added: “We’re excited to welcome Jaxon full-time to the team in 2024. We all know each other quite well and Jaxon has always been a pleasure to work with.

“He has shown potential as a co-driver and has a lot of speed at hand, he’ll be one to watch next year that’s for sure.

“What Jaxon achieved overseas is the envy of most drivers and he’s an amazing asset with his breadth of experience across so many professional categories. He’s a natural fit for us.”
