It has been confirmed that Zane Morse, driver in the Toyota 86 Racing Series will take to the grid for the Kumho Super3 Series in 2020. Having now competed in the Toyota 86 Series for two consecutive seasons, the 20-year-old is looking to step up and take on the next challenge.
Originally established in 2008, the Kumho Super3 Series (formerly known as the Kumho V8 Touring Car Series), has continued to grow and is now officially the third-tier of Supercar competition.
Initially the Series was designed to provide a competition for cars no longer able to compete in the Super2 Series (Development Series) – but since then it has become so much more than that, attracting many ex-Supercar drivers as well as young up and coming racers.
Morse will be driving the 2008 Holden Commodore which was driven by Russell Ingall in 2008 as well as Tim Slade for majority of 2009. Ingall managed to score podium finishes in this particular chassis at Ipswich and Bahrain, whilst it finished seventh at Bathurst in 2009 with Slade and Paul Morris.
Adding to its history, this particular VE also competed in various Super2 rounds in 2010 with Jack Perkins as well as 2011 to 2013 with Marcus Zukanovic.
“I am so excited to be jumping into the next category of racing,” admits Morse.
“I feel like I am ready to take on the next challenge and am really looking forward to learning more and also tackling the force of a Supercar.
“This category is such a great stepping stone for people like me who are looking to take the next step, so I’m really excited to see what next year brings!”
Long-time sponsor, Brema Group will continue their sponsorship with the 20-year old. The ACT demolition, earthworks and recycling company have backed the racer throughout his Toyota 86 campaign and will continue their support into the 2020 season.
“I’m very grateful to have Brema Group continue to back me,” said the Canberra native.
“I have formed a really great relationship with Mark Siracusa and I can’t thank Brema Group enough for their continued support.”
The Kumho Super3 calendar is yet to be released for the 2020 season, however it is expected it will follow a similar five round program as the 2019 campaign.
