Image Racing’s Jordan Boys has hit the track at Winton Motor Raceway for his first wildcard test alongside Erebus Motorsport’s Academy.
Today marked Boys’ return to a Supercar since his final Super2 race victory at the 2021 Bathurst 1000, it was also the first time the Erebus Commodore had been on track since an Academy evaluation day in October last year.
With Winton his home track, the 24-year-old is feeling confident about his maiden solo start after setting fast lap times and seeing positive developments across the day.
“We had a great day overall as a team, it feels awesome to be back in a Supercar, ” Boys said.
“In terms of my goals for this year, I don’t really have a number on where I want to be. I would just really like to have a strong showing and prove that I belong in the main game.
“Winton is a home track for me so I feel comfortable here but today was definitely the fastest I’ve ever been around here so I need to keep pushing past those limits that I was so used to in Super2.”
The Albury-racer was accompanied by Erebus drivers Will Brown and Brodie Kostecki who undertook their own test programs next door as part of their second test of the season.
Erebus CEO Barry Ryan was impressed with Boys’ performance and is looking forward to seeing him step up into the Supercars category next weekend.
“It’s been great to see Jordan take to the main game car as quickly as he has today,” Ryan said.
“We know he’ll be pushing to qualify high up the grid and we look forward to seeing him achieve some impressive results.”
Boys will return to Winton in the #49 Commodore for his debut wildcard appearance at the Winton SuperSprint, May 21-22.
