Gold Coast teenager and all-around nice guy Broc Feeney has this morning been confirmed to replace the greatest driver in Supercars history Jamie Whincup at the start of the 2022 season.

It's possibly the worst kept secret in Aussie motorsport; however, this morning on the Gold Coast, we received confirmation, the youngster who's been clocking up some hours with the operation is now set to be the youngest Triple Eight driver in history.

Broc Feeney the current Dunlop Super2 Series points leader will turn 19 in October and share a Supercheap Auto-backed Triple Eight wildcard with Russell Ingall at the Repco Bathurst 1000.

Feeney has won four of the 2021 Super2 season's six races and is the comfortable points leader heading to the next event.

Whincup confirmed in February that he will end his full-time driving career in 2021 and will take up the Managing Director and Team Principal roles at the team.
