Tim Blanchard returns as wild card for Perth night race

Tim Blanchard will return to the Supercars Championship for the Perth night race as a wild card with Brad Jones Racing.

“I am looking forward to stepping back into the Supercars series in Perth. The night race was heaps of fun last year, so I expect it to be just as big this year,” said Blanchard.

“Stepping down from full-time racing last year was a big decision for me, but I still enjoy racing at this level. So I was always keen to stay involved in a driving capacity, through the Pirtek Endurance Cup or any other opportunities that arose, like this.”

Blanchard finished 24th overall last year before deciding to focus on team ownership ahead of 2019 but is looking for a successful wild card return.

“Our expectations for the weekend are realistic; we have put a great crew together, which is a mix of new and old crew from the workshop, so I am confident we’ll have a successful weekend. It’ll be a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to getting back behind the wheel!” said Blanchard.
