Walkinshaw Andretti United has announced that Bryce Fullwood has joined the team to drive in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, beginning in 2020. Middy’s have been a supporter of Bryce since his early racing days and we are proud to continue this partnership as Bryce moves into the big show for 2020.
Fullwood, 21, hails from Darwin in the Northern Territory and joins the WAU Team after winning the 2019 Dunlop Super2 Series. He will become the first Territorian to race in the Supercars Championship full time, and the first Darwin native to race in-front of his hometown when the Championship heads to Hidden Valley for the BetEasy Darwin Triple Crown on July 17-19.
He will drive the Mobil 1 Middy’s Racing Car No. 2 Holden ZB Commodore in his rookie Supercars season, joining Chaz Mostert in the WAU stable. Middy’s have joined the Walkinshaw Andretti United family for 2020 as Co-Naming Rights Partner on the Fullwood entry and are excited at the opportunity this brings.
Fullwood joins Walkinshaw Andretti United family with an impressive motorsport resume. In 2019, he amassed six race wins and four pole positions on his way to the Dunlop Super2 crown with Matt White Motorsport, sealing the win six rounds in to the seven-round championship. Proving his speed and consistency, he finished first or second in all bar three races in the year.
He also partnered Andre Heimgartner in the PIRTEK Enduro Cup in 2019, following a year with Todd Hazelwood in 2018. The former Australian Karting Champion, who also has eight state and territory titles to his name, represented Australia at the Rotax Worlds in Spain in 2014.
The livery of the car will be launched in the coming weeks, stay tuned for striking Middy's design! Fullwood will have his first official drive of the Mobil 1 Middy’s Racing Commodore on February 18th at the 2020 Supercars pre-season test at The Bend Motorsport Park, before making his Supercars main-game debut that weekend at the Superloop Adelaide 500.
“I’m really excited to be joining the Walkinshaw Andretti United family for 2020, and can’t wait to get my rookie year under way. It’s a dream come true to join the main series, and something I’ve been working towards for a long time."
“From the moment I walked through the doors at WAU I felt at home, and everyone here has been more than welcoming. There’s no doubt there will be a lot to learn this year, but I’ve definitely got the right people around me, you can tell it’s a family here."
“It’s fantastic to be able to continue my relationship with Middy’s who have been an incredible supporter over my journey, and great to have the support of Mobil 1 who have such a loyal relationship with the Team."
“Now that the news is out there, I can’t wait to jump in the car at The Bend and kick it all off.”
