Reigning Dunlop Super2 champion Bryce Fullwood has been confirmed as the occupant of the second Walkinshaw Andretti United Commodore in the 2020 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
Widely tipped to take the seat in the latter part of last year’s championship, Fullwood’s confirmation sees him join Chaz Mostert at the team that has undergone a full overhaul of its driver line-up, having farewelled James Courtney and Scott Pye at the end of last year.
Born in Darwin, Fullwood becomes the first Territorian to drive in the championship full-time and will continue to be sponsored by Middy’s Data & Electrical – the partner who backed his championship-winning tilt with Matt White Motorsport last year.
His season started in perfect circumstances at the Superloop Adelaide 500 – claiming two of the three races contested at the circuit and finishing on the second step of the podium in the other.
Fullwood will join the Supercars paddock at the upcoming season launch and all-in test day at Tailem Bend before hitting the track for opening practice on Thursday night at the Superloop Adelaide 500.
“I’m really excited to be joining the Walkinshaw Andretti United family for 2020 and can’t wait to get my rookie year under way,” Fullwood said.
“It’s a dream come true to join the main series, and something I’ve been working towards for a long time.”
Mobil 1 will continue as a joint-title sponsor for Walkinshaw Andretti United along with Middy’s in 2020.
The Superloop Adelaide 500 takes place from February 20-23 and is the opening round of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
