Darwin kicks off four-straight weeks of racing for Jaxon Evans

Jaxon Evans is set to embark on a remarkable month-long racing program, kicking off at the Darwin Triple Crown this weekend.

The 27-year-old New Zealander is a man in demand around the world, with his ride in the SCT-backed Chevrolet Supercar at Darwin followed by races at Mount Fuji in Japan, the 24 Hours of Spa in Belgium and a return to Australia for the Townsville 500.

His twin international drivers will both be with Porsche squad Phantom Global Racing – a continuation of his role as a factory Porsche driver.

At Mt Fuji for the Fanatec GT Asia series, he will race alongside Sun Jingzu, before contesting the 100th running of the 24 Hours of Spa in an all-Pro driving line-up, featuring Joel Eriksson and Thomas Preining.

Evans’ month of motorsport adds to an already busy season of racing, including his drive in Fanatec GT Australia with Arise Racing where less than two weeks ago he scored a pole position and two podium race results.

First stop is Darwin, and although Evans raced a Supercar at the Hidden Valley circuit, he has enjoyed success there in Porsche Carrera Cup Australia. Evans secured his maiden race and round win at the venue in 2017, while he also added another victory in his title winning season a year later.

Fast forward to this season, Evans and the SCT Motorsport crew will be targeting an improved performance in qualifying at Hidden Valley. In debriefing the Perth round, Evans highlighted this as an area to improve and formed part of the testing program the team undertook at Queensland Raceway recently.

“It’s certainly going to be a really big month for me,” said Evans.

“I’ve been doing lots of racing already in all different types of cars, so this is a pretty cool continuation of the busy schedule I’ve already had.

“I’ve had success at Darwin before in Porsche Carrera Cup, and I love the track and the event. It will be great to race a Supercar there. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.

“To get that Rookie Test under my belt was a big commitment from not only the SCT Motorsport side of things, but Brad Jones Racing as well.”

Evans will take part in the first Track to Town at the Darwin event on Thursday, June 13 before a rapid run of sessions starting on Friday, June 14 to kick off the latest round of the Repco Supercars Championship in Darwin.
