Shepparton racer Garry Jacobson will move to racing a Nissan during this year’s Dunlop Super2 Series.
Last year Jacobson competed in a Ford Falcon, but has switched due to a new partnership with Matthew White Motorsport, where he will race in a Nissan Altima.
He claimed the title in 2016 driving a Ford FG X Falcon while in the Prodrive Racing Australia squad.
But rounding out the MW Motorsports team alongside Dean Fiore and Alex Rullo, Jacobson said he was ready for the season to start.
‘‘I’m very excited to be joining the MW Motorsport squad for this year,’’ he said.
‘‘Matt White is well renowned for producing a very good race car and it’s awesome that we can partner up with him this year.’’
Having driven a Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore during his most recent years of driving, Jacobson was looking forward to getting behind the wheel of a new make of car.
‘‘After driving another marque, the Nissan will be a great challenge,’’ he said.
‘‘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.
‘‘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.’’
Jacobson will continue to be backed by Mega Limited and its livery will brandish the Nissan.
Jacobson begins his seventh Dunlop Super2 Series at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide from March 1 to 4, having spent yesterday and Monday testing at Winton.
The Sandown 500 in September and Bathurst 1000 in October will also be highlights of the season.
