Walkinshaw Andretti United has announced that Bryce Fullwood has signed a contract extension with the Team, to continue as driver of the No. 2 entry for the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship.
Fullwood, 22, joined Walkinshaw Andretti United for the 2020 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship in his rookie year, after winning the 2019 Dunlop Super2 Series.
After making his main-game debut at the 2020 Superloop Adelaide 500, Fullwood has recorded one podium finish, four top-10’s, and a best qualifying of seventh in his 26 race starts.
He currently sits in 18th in the 2020 Championship, ahead of not only every rookie driver in the field, but also every second-year driver, proving how impressive his debut season has been.
Fullwood will continue to drive the No. 2 Walkinshaw Andretti United entry alongside Chaz Mostert in the Team, with further announcements on partners of the entry to come.
Fullwood and co-driver Kurt Kostecki will take to the track at Mount Panorama tomorrow, Thursday October 15, for the opening day of practice at the 2020 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
“I’m super excited to be back with Walkinshaw Andretti United. I love it here, it really is a family, and it’s fantastic to be able to continue the journey we started.
“I’ve been really happy with how this year has gone so far, and I’m excited to continue to build during the off-season.
“Having that certainty about my future will allow me to prepare in the best possible way for 2021, so it’s great to get the news out there, focus on this weekend, and then get to work on next year immediately.
“I can’t thank the team and our partners enough for their continued support, and look forward to seeing what the future has in store for us.”
“Re-signing Bryce was an absolute no-brainer. He has done an outstanding job this year, exceeding expectations and continually performing to a level well above his experience. To get a podium in your rookie season is no mean feat, but that is just one of the many aspects we have been impressed with throughout the year.
“He has been a fantastic asset to our team, both on and off the track, and I can’t wait to see his progression continue within our family.
“It’s great to keep that relationship between Bryce and Chaz for next season, and continue the direction we have followed so far this year. Bring on the weekend and 2021!”
“It’s fantastic to have Bryce re-sign with Walkinshaw Andretti United. He has definitely surprised a few people so far in 2020, but we knew from a very early stage that he is a great talent and person, which made the decision an easy one. I can’t wait to see his career continue to grow within our team.
“I’m really excited to see how Bryce, and both cars go this weekend, before a big off-season as we continue to build into 2021.”
“I’m so excited to see Bryce continue on with Walkinshaw Andretti United. Not only has he been a fantastic addition to our team this year, punching above his weight in terms of results, but he is a quality person, and an ultimate professional.
“It’ll be fantastic to see that continue next year, but I’m equally excited to watch how both cars go this weekend.”
