The 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship field is set, with Garry Jacobson confirmed in the fourth seat at Kelly Racing.
Jacobson, 26, is the 2016 Dunlop Super2 champion, and has an established association with the team having driven for the outfit in the 2016 enduros with new boss Rick Kelly.
Driving the #3 Altima with RABBLE.club backing, Jacobson joins continuing team drivers Kelly, Simona De Silvestro and Andre Heimgartner.
"It has been great to have been involved closely with the team for the past couple of years, through the Super2 program and the endurance races,” Jacobson said of the announcement.
"This [experience] is going to put me in with a great chance to hit the ground running.
"It’s a very exciting time, but I know that the real business starts at the test, so I’m putting every focus into making the most of my opportunity."
