Brad Jones Racing is excited to announce that Andre Heimgartner will join the team for the 2022 season.
Heimgartner made his Supercars debut at Bathurst in 2014 as a wildcard and is already familiar with BJR after a sensational stint as co-driver in 2017 with Tim Slade at the Gold Coast and Bathurst.
26-year-old Heimgartner has notched up 171 Supercars Championship starts and scored his debut race win this year at Tailem Bend. Heimgartner’s Supercars career includes 5 podium finishes, 2 pole positions and 7 Bathurst 1000 starts.
The talented Kiwi is ready to build on his impressive results next year, “I’m extremely excited to announce my new long-term signing with BJR,” he said.
“BJR was a big part of my resurgence back onto the supercar scene, with a last minute call up to replace the injured Ash Walsh in 2017 that resulted in a podium in the Gold Coast 500 with Tim Slade.
“To be joining such a legendary team with such great people, is an amazing opportunity and challenge I am really looking forward to. I can’t wait for the years ahead and much more success to come.”
Team Owner Brad Jones adds, “Andre is a familiar face with the BJR team and I’m extremely excited to have him on board, full-time, for the 2022 season and beyond. I’ve watched him develop over the last few years and see a lot of potential in him. I think he’ll fit right in with our team and partners. I feel like we’ll be in a good position to fight for wins and podiums moving forward.”
It is a very exciting time for Brad Jones Racing and the team look forward to having Heimgartner as part of the family for 2022.
