Kostecki Brothers Racing are likely to expand to three cars with the Kostecki cousin Brodie is set to shift to the family-run team alongside the two brothers, Kurt and Jake.

Kostecki Brothers Racing started in the Dunlop Super2 Series in 2016, as the family brought two Commodores from Triple Eight – chassis 37 and 39.

The two Kostecki brothers, Kurt and Jake, have raced in the team Holden VF Commodores since the COTF-spec Supercars were allowed in the second-tier Supercars series.

While their cousin Brodie Kostecki, who’s been in America to try and make it in NASCAR, he changed tactics and made his debut in the Super2 Series last season.

Brodie Kostecki ran his rookie Super2 campaign at the championship winning Matt Stone Racing team, but he ran one of their older cars – a SBR-built FG Falcon that was before the COTF-era was introduced.

Those previous generation cars are no longer eligible to race in the Dunlop Super2 Series, with the COTF chassis are only permitted in the series from 2018 onwards.

Only STR Motorsport and Matt Stone Racing ran a single old-gen car each, an FG Falcon last season.

This was forwarded when the trio hinted on Snapchat that the family is expanding to three bays – meaning three cars.

With the car that Jake Kostecki been racing the past two seasons has been put on the market. It is understood that the family has brought the 2017-raced Van Gisbergen Commodore for Kurt Kostecki.

This means Kurt’s Holden will get passed down to brother Jake with Brodie in the remaining chassis 37.
