Young gun Brenton Grove will join Triple Eight Race Engineering for the 2019 Dunlop Super2 Series.

A multiple Supercars championship winning team, Triple Eight are set re-launch their Super2 program in 2019 fielding a two-car effort for Grove and Kurt Kostecki.

Throughout the 2018 Super2 season, Grove ran in Craig Lowndes’ 2017 Triple Eight-built Holden VF Commodore with Grove Racing in a technical partnership alongside Eggleston Motorsport.

It was the 21-year-old's first venture out of Porsches after impressive outings in Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge and Porsche Carrera Cup Australia.

Grove ended the season 21st in the standings with a best race result of 10th at Bathurst where he partnered Earl Bamber.

Speaking on the Triple Eight announcement, Grove said he is looking forward to learning as much as he can from the opportunity.

“Triple Eight is obviously the benchmark in Australian motorsport, so to join them and utilise their resources will be awesome,” he said. 

“They do things properly, so I’m really excited for next year and seeing what we can achieve.

“I haven’t got any major goals, I think it’s always good to try and improve when you’re out there, so to get towards the top ten would be nice.

"That’s obviously the objective, but from there, anything can happen, so I’m just going to try to be consistent and keep learning.”

The 2019 Super2 Championship kicks off at the Adelaide 500, February 28 - March 3, and reaches its finale on the streets of Newcastle in November.
