Jordan Boys will make his solo Supercars debut in a wildcard entry with Image Racing and the Erebus Academy at Winton followed by another outing The Bend Motorsport Park.
The Dunlop Super2 Series race winner made his Supercars debut for Brad Jones Racing in 2020 and will drive a Holden ZB Commodore for the solo drives in 2022.
“My goal has always been to race in the main game,” he said.
“I am backing myself at the highest level to prove that I am capable.
“I don’t feel I have been able to deliver what I believe I can and I need to do this to take that next step towards a full-time main game drive.
“It’s a brutal sport and every driver wants a seat, but with the right team and car I believe we will be competitive at Winton and I can prove that I can mix it with the best.
“It’s really exciting to do the wildcard alongside Image and Erebus given that I have been associated with them for so long.
“Image Racing is like family to me so it’s great to make this step with Terry, it’s something we’ve spoken about for a long time.
“We’re really excited to have a crack at it and we’re both pretty confident that we can do a good job.”
Boys raced for the Terry Wyhoon-run Image team between 2017 and 2021.
“Image Racing, alongside the Erebus Academy, is designed to provide the best possible opportunity for young drivers with talent to break into the super-competitive Supercars series,” Wyhoon said.
“Jordan has campaigned very successfully over the past few years at Super2 levels and has had some success as a co-driver.
“Following some serious discussion with Jordan and Barry Ryan we all agreed that his talent has not really been put on show in a format that represents his exceptional driving ability.
“Hence a decision was made earlier this season that he would focus all his energy on a two-round wildcard campaign and show what he is truly capable of and I think he will surprise quite a few.”
