Can Jordan Boys take the next step and nab a seat in the V8 Supercars championship in 2022 despite a sport-wide regulation change?

Jordan Boys has always been focused on becoming a driver for as long as he can remember, but can he take the next step in a full-time V8 Supercars Championship drive?

Boys, whose dad instilled a love of Motorsport into both him and his brother at a very young age, is now 23 and currently leads the 2021 Dunlop Super2 championship and is well poised to make his move into the big time of Supercars.

Now in his fourth full-time year, Boys impressed at Mount Panorama in round 1.

Boys has his eyes firmly set on the championship in 2021. He stresses that success will come if he is able to ‘keep these strong results and making sure I don’t land off the podium all year’.

Despite his superb form at Bathurst, Boys recognizes that his package may not work as well across the calendar after his strong showing at Bathurst.

“Winton and Sydney have been our weak points but through testing, we were even looking really confident there,” he said.

“We need to make sure we’re running in the top three at all times. I think with the amount of effort we were putting in we can achieve that.

“I’m 23 now so I need to start making that next step toward the Supercars Championship.

In 2020 Jordan took part in Australia’s most renowned motor race – the Bathurst 1000 racing alongside Todd Hazelwood for Brad Jones Racing.

Gen 3 Supercars

If Boys does get the call up to Supercars championship next year he will be entering at a very exciting time for the sport.

V8 Supercars will be changing and they will be known as ‘Gen3 Supercars’.

The cars will be bulkier, muscle cars with less aerodynamics and a focus on close racing.

Boys said this change could be incredibly beneficial for his first year in the series – if he were to make it.

“I think next year will be a great opportunity going into a new car puts everyone on an even playing field,” he said.

“It’s a necessary step for the sport.

“Less aero equals better racing”.
