Jack Smith will step down from full-time Supercars racing at the end of 2023.
The Adelaide 500 will be Smith’s final event as a full-time Supercars driver having spent four years behind the wheel of a Brad Jones Racing Supercar.
Smith’s best championship result was 21st in 2021 alongside a Bathurst best of 17th place that year. His final race will be on the streets of Adelaide this weekend, with the now 24-year-old taking a bow on his time in Supercars.
“This isn’t a decision we’ve come to lightly, Supercars have been such a big part of my life,” said Smith.
“I came into it when I was quite young and have really grown up in the paddock. It’s just the right time for us now to take this step back.
“I can’t thank everyone from the SCT Logistics crew and the team at Brad Jones Racing enough for everything over the last seven years.
“We all set out on this ride together and it’s been quite a learning experience for us all and I’d like to thank all the fans who’ve supported me.
“I’ve been with BJR for basically my entire career, and they’ve been an amazing team to work with and guide me on my journey.”
Team owner Brad Jones Racing: “It’s hard to believe it’s been six years with Jack in the team. I remember when I met Jack when he was quite young – he was quiet, polite and always willing to listen, over the years that never changed.
“We have been fortunate enough to win a championship together which you don’t get to do every day.
“I hope we will still see plenty of Jack at the circuit and I would like to wish him well for the future road ahead.
“Jack and his family have been incredibly loyal to me and that’s a rare trait to see in this industry.”
Brad Jones Racing has not announced who will replace Smith in 2024.
