The outgoing Dunlop Super2 Series champion Garry Jacobson has announced that he will race for MW Motorsport for the new season after his previous team scales back this year.

Jacobson has been with a team following his departure from Tickford Racing, as they scale down to one Super2 FG/X Falcon for Thomas Randle for the upcoming season.

The 2016 champion has previously raced for Eggleston Motorsport before winning the championship with Prodrive Racing Australia (now Tickford Racing).

Now he takes the MEGA Fuels backing he got at the Ford team to the Nissan-run team.

“I’m very excited to be joining the MW Motorsport squad for this year and bringing MEGA Limited along for the journey,” said Jacobson.

“Matt White is well renowned for producing a very good racecar and it’s awesome that we can partner up with him this year.

“After driving another marque, the Nissan will be a great challenge – since entering the Dunlop Super2 Series with MW Motorsport, the team has produced some solid results, so we aim to build on that program in 2018.”

A championship-proven team, MW Motorsport, field three Nissan Altimas for Jack Le Brocq, Shae Davies, and Bryce Fulwood, will have wholesale driver changes this year with Jacobson joining Dean Fiore and Alex Rullo.

“To have Dean and Alex in the team – both drivers with a lot of experience – will be a great yardstick and I’m confident the three of us will work brilliantly together,” he added.

Jacobson was one of the standout co-drivers in the Pirtek Endurance Cup, is expected to join his Super2 teammates Dean Fiore and Alex Rullo as Nissan Motorsport co-drivers this year, while none of them have been confirmed by the team.

The season opener takes place at the Adelaide 500 on March 1-4.
