Triple Eight Race Engineering has completed its 2022 Super2 Series driver line-up with the signing of young gun, Declan Fraser. Already a well-known competitor in the Supercars Championship development series, Fraser will be accompanied by Cameron Hill, who was confirmed to join the team’s Super2 program last month.
After a successful go-kart tenure which started from a young age, Declan transitioned to cars in 2017 by competing in the Toyota 86 Series as the youngest ever competitor in the series. The Mackay local is currently enrolled in the ‘Paul Morris Racing Academy’ after accepting a scholarship into the program and will enter his second season of the Super2 Series in 2022.
“I could not be more excited about this opportunity to drive for triple eight for season 2022, the chance to race with and for the team that are the benchmark in our sport in terms of professionalism and performance is one that I intend to grab onto with both hands and will be doing everything I can to deliver further success to triple eight, my sponsors and supporters.
I had a fantastic rookie year with some strong results and now I am looking forward to next year and picking up where Broc left off.
I’m going to throw everything I can at winning the championship and I know that being with Triple Eight, I’m going to be in a winning environment and will also have all the resources to do so both on and off the track. I cannot thank Jamie and the team enough for the support and belief they have shown in me and for welcoming me to the team. I am really looking forward to testing and the season getting underway.”
Triple Eight’s incoming Managing Director, Jamie Whincup, welcomed Declan to Triple Eight’s Super2 program and is looking forward to seeing what he can offer heading into the 2022 season.
“Now we’ve secured our Super2 driving line-up for next year, we can fully focus on our objectives for the 2022 season and give both Declan and Cameron the resources they need on and off the track to ensure they both give it a red-hot crack.
“Triple Eight’s Super2 program is a breeding ground for young drivers, engineers and mechanics who have their sights on working in the top-tier of Australian motorsport, which is Supercars.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Declan to the Banyo stables. He’s a ripping young kid, and I truly believe he’ll be one to keep an eye on heading into the 2022 season.”
The 2022 Super2 Series kicks off at the Newcastle 500 on March 4-6.
