History

The team is currently branded as CoolDrive Racing.

Customer Team

Tim Blanchard Racing was formed at the end of the 2016 season when Tim Blanchard purchased a Racing Entitlements Contract (REC) from Super Black Racing with the aim of continuing in the Supercars Championship, after the Britek Motorsport REC that had underpinned Blanchard's entry was taken by owner Jason Bright to Prodrive Racing Australia.[1] Brad Jones Racing maintained the running of the entry.[2][3] In 2018, the team upgraded to the Holden ZB Commodore.

After Blanchard retired from full time driving at the end of 2018, Macauley Jones took over the driving.[4] For 2020, the team's race number was changed from No. 21 to No. 3.

Stand Alone Team

From 2021, After four seasons running as a satellite team of Brad Jones Racing, the team will be renamed to Blanchard Racing Team and switch to a ex-23Red Racing Tickford-built Ford Mustang. Macauley Jones was replaced by Tim Slade. [5]
