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

Repco Supercars Championship driver Jaxon Evans is set to undertake an exciting month of events starting at Darwin this weekend.

Following on from the fifth event on the Repco Supercars Championship calendar at Hidden Valley Raceway this weekend, the 27-year-old New Zealander heads to the historic Fuji International Speedway for a round of the Fanatec GT World Challenge Asia.

This is followed by a trip to the centenary 24 Hours of Spa before returning to Australia for the Townsville 500.

For the two international events Evans will re-join Porsche squad Phantom Global Racing, the team he scored fourth in the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour with earlier this year.

At Fuji, he will partner Sun Jingzu before heading to Spa to be joined by Joel Eriksson and Thomas Preining in all-Porsche factory attack.

“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.

“From there I go to Mount Fuji – a great track with a stunning backdrop. Then straight from Tokyo to Brussels for the 24 Hours of Spa, and it’s really cool to be competing there in the 100th running of that race. It’s one that any race driver around the world wants to win.

“I’ll finally finish the trip off with Townsville, but with all that’s ahead, it’s hard to even think about that one yet.

“One thing for sure is that I’ll have plenty of frequent flyer miles under my belt by the time I finish it all off!”

Evans has taken every opportunity to race both locally as well as overseas. Just a fortnight ago, Evans scored pole position and two podiums at The Bend contesting Fanatec GT Australia in a Ferrari 296 GT3 for Arise Racing GT.

The SCT Motorsport Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 to be raced by Evans this weekend will feature an indigenous livery as part of acknowledgement of aboriginal culture.
