The young Kiwi will partner Chris Pither for the Sandown 500, Bathurst 1000, and Gold Coast 600, and will make his debut in the Prodrive-run SBR Ford at Winton this weekend in practice.

"I'm extremely excited to be joining Super Black Racing and grateful for the opportunity to get some mileage under my belt to be as best prepared as possible for the enduro races later in the year," Stanaway explained.

"Competing in V8 Supercars and especially the Bathurst 1000 has always been a childhood dream for me so I can't wait to get going. I'll be focused on putting my best foot forward to deliver the best possible results for the team."

According to team manager Greg Hahn, securing New Zealand's best talent is a big coup for the Kiwi team.

"We've been working on this for a while," said Hahn.

"He's one of the hottest New Zealand talents out there in global motorsport and there's absolutely no question about his outright pace and his abilities in an endurance race, so we see him joining the team for the enduros as a huge positive and can't wait to get him in the car for practice."
