MW Motorsport is pleased to confirm the signing of Thomas Randle for its 2020 Dunlop Super2 Series campaign.
The 23-year-old will drive the 2019 series-winning Nissan Altima that Bryce Fullwood took to his series success this year.
Randle enjoyed a stand-out year in 2019, finishing third in the Super2 Series, driving for Tickford Racing. His season included two race wins and two pole positions, as well as a co-driving role with Lee Holdsworth in the team’s Bottle-O Racing Mustang entry. His strong co-driving performances were highlighted by a ninth place finish at the Bathurst 1000 and a third place at the Sandown 500.
His successful endurance campaign netted him third overall in the Pirtek Enduro Cup having made just four ‘main game’ starts.
The Victorian also took victory in the new S5000 class at the category’s most recent event at The Bend Motorsport Park last month.
MW Motorsport enjoyed its most successful Super2 campaign in 2019, with Fullwood claiming a dominant four round victories, including six race wins and three pole positions.
Fullwood’s strong results were backed up by encouraging performances from Supercars graduate Zane Goodard, who finished fourth overall. The team’s third car for young gun Tyler Everingham saw him continue him rapid improvement, taking sixth overall including his maiden race win at Sandown last month.
MW Motorsport is aiming to continue as a three-car Super2 Series team. The other two drivers will be confirmed in the coming months.

“I’m really excited to be joining Matthew White Motorsport for the 2020 Dunlop Super2 Series,” said Thomas Randle.
“Matt has plenty of history in the sport, after forming his team in 2000 to further his own career, so it’s great to be driving for someone who is an ex-racer and has a huge amount of knowledge.
“Matt’s had a lot of success in Supercars and I believe it is the right place for me to be in 2020 to win the Dunlop Super2 Series.
“The MWM team have had some great drivers in their stable in the past, and hopefully I can add to that list. To be driving the 2019 championship winning car will be a privilege and I’m just really looking forward to getting stuck into things for the first time at the beginning of the new year.
“I’d like to thank everyone from Tickford Racing for the past two years. It has been a pleasure to drive for them and I’ve certainly learnt a lot during my time there, which I’m sure will be very beneficial to my 2020 campaign.”

“We’re super excited to work with Thomas in the 2020 Dunlop Super2 Series,” said Matthew White.
“He has showed during this year that he is more than capable of getting the results that we both want. He led a fair few races and we had some good battles with him. It’s great that he will be on our side of the garage next year.
“Thomas also showed that that he acquitted himself really well in the endurance races too, which is going to be a big confidence booster for him going into the new year.
“We have established our team as one of Super2’s benchmarks, and we feel that Thomas is ready to help is continue to achieve at that level. And at just 23, he also keeps with our youth development program in order, giving young guns the opportunities to further their careers.”
