Andre Heimgartner completes 2020 Kelly Racing line-up

Andre Heimgartner has been confirmed alongside Rick Kelly for their 2020 Supercars Championship campaign.

“It is great to have Andre locked away for the future and ensures that we have a strong line-up across our two Mustangs for 2020. It is important that we future-proof the team and, at only 24, Andre has many years of driving ahead of him,” said Todd Kelly, director of Kelly Racing.

“In the last two years, it has been terrific to witness first-hand Andre’s development as a driver and with the opportunities ahead next year there’s no doubt that he’ll be highly competitive in a Mustang.”

The 24-year-old has signed a “multi-year” contract with the team that he joined for the 2018 Supercars season.

“Kelly Racing backed me to return to Supercars, and it’s fantastic to lock down the future and continue this journey together. It was always my preference to stick by the team that has supported me and the opportunities for next year are really the icing on the cake,” said Heimgartner.

“The change to the Ford Mustang for next year, and working with Ford Performance, has everyone in the team excited, and I can’t wait to get behind the wheel.

“That said, I have an important job to finish off this season on a high after a challenging couple of events, and with our recent pace, feel we can be in a strong position at both Sandown and Newcastle.”

Heimgartner is currently placed 17th overall with a podium finish at Phillip Island as his so far best result this season.
