Dunlop Super2 drivers Brodie Kostecki and Thomas Randle have been confirmed as wildcard entries for Wednesday night’s third round of the BP Supercars All Star Eseries.
A well-known sim racer, Kostecki made headlines as a Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 wildcard last year, when lap fumes forced him from the Commodore which both he and cousins Jake and Kurt built for the PIRTEK Enduro Cup.
Kostecki has also been acting as strategist for Penrite Racing’s Anton de Pasquale during the series while also having been delegated the role of setting up all the cars for every circuit the series heads to.
This week’s event will also feature a top-10 shootout around the famous Mount Panorama circuit.
“I can’t wait to get my first start in the BP All Stars Eseries,” Kostecki said.
“It should be a wild one at Bathurst. It’s a really different format to what the fans are used to and having the first Top Ten Shootout will make it exciting to watch. I can’t wait to see what chaos ensues and hopefully we can stay out of it.
“I have been doing a bit behind the scenes with Supercars and Penrite Racing since the series started. Supercars has done an amazing job broadcasting the racing. It’s been really fun to watch and see how much they’ve achieved in such a short amount of time, so kudos to them.”
Joining Kostecki will be fellow Super2 rival and 2018 Mike Kable Young Gun Award Winner Thomas Randle.
“I’m really excited to be making my Eseries debut on Wednesday,” said Randle.
“It’s great to be able to be mixing it with the main game guys again. I’ve been following the Eseries very closely and have been trying to do as many laps on the simulator as possible in preparation for Wednesday.
“In this unprecedented time it’s fantastic that myself and Brodie are able to showcase our sim driving skills against the Supercars drivers all live on Fox Sports and online.”
Round 3 of the All Star Eseries will be contested from Mount Panorama, Bathurst with live coverage on Sky Sport 5 from 8 pm.
