BJR returns to Super3 with Elly Morrow

Brad Jones Racing is set to return to Super3 with rising young star Elly Morrow ready to steer the BJR #8 Commodore this weekend at the final round at Sydney MotorSport Park in the Dunlop Super3 Series. Morrow has been part of the BJR-TWM Junior Development Program, under the guidance of Tom Williamson Motorsport, for a number of years and has been hand picked by Brad and Macauley Jones to take the next step in her racing career. “Elly has been working tremendously hard throughout the year at her BJR test days and has shown improvement each session,” Brad Jones said. “Her work ethic and determination is what I look for in young drivers and Elly has not shied away from hard work. I’m looking forward to seeing how she goes this weekend. She fits in well with the team and takes on board the directions given to her. It’ll be great having a BJR car back in the Super3 competition as well.” Elly has been putting in the work with the BJR crew and is ready for her first race with the team, “I’ve had some test days now with the team and we have been making progress throughout these days working on different tyres, car balance and getting me up to speed with everything,” Morrow said. “I’ve completed some test days at Winton and here at Sydney MotorSport Park so it’s a track I’m now very familiar with and that gives me more confidence leading into this weekend. I was also a part of the Sport Sedans category here a few weekends ago so it was great to get some extra practice in ahead of this weekend.“Paul Scalzo is my Engineer from BJR and I feel like from my first test day we’ve had a good relationship and work together well. He’s very patient going through everything with me so we’ll continue to build on this. There’s a lot to take in so I’m just trying to learn as much as I can at the moment. I’ve also had a huge amount of help and guidance from Macauley (Jones) and Tom (Williamson). Both have been at all of my test days and working very closely with me so I feel very fortunate to have a strong team around me. Tom has been my mentor all through my karting, so to be the first BJR-TWM team member to be chosen to step up into the Super3 program is a huge honour. “I’m looking forward to the weekend, of course feeling nervous but I’m very excited. I think it’s important not to put too much pressure on myself as the weekend will be about learning as much as I can and not about results. If I can finish all my races and come away with learning something new from every session then it’ll be a positive weekend.” The Steeline Racing livery is a sleek black, blue and green, brought to life by BJR partners 3M Films and PPG. Stay up to date with Morrow in the Steeline Racing Commodore on the BJR social pages across the weekend.
