After the financial strains of the Covid-19 pandemic forced Will Davison onto the Supercars sidelines, it’s been confirmed that he will return to the series as co-driver to Cameron Waters at Tickford Racing for the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
“It’s been a crazy year for so many, and it’s been hard to be on the sidelines, but to know I have such a great partner and team for the big one at Bathurst is pretty huge for me,” said Davison.
“It’s something I’m counting down the days for now. I know Cam well, obviously, I know everyone here at Tickford incredibly well, so I couldn’t be more excited to do my part in helping Cam and the team get a big result at Bathurst.”
“I guess it’s one of those ‘one door closes, another opens’ situation, and for that door to open for Will to rejoin the team is fantastic,” added Tickford boss Tim Edwards.
“He gels really well with the team and the other drivers, and obviously he’s one of the best drivers in pit lane, so with the way things panned out it was a no-brainer to bring him on board.”
Waters’ co-driver from last year’s event, Michael Caruso, will now pair with Lee Holdsworth in Tickford’s Truck Assist entry — completing a reunion of sorts between the two close friends and former Garry Rogers Motorsport teammates.
James Moffat’s positioning with Jack Le Brocq and Bathurst debutante Broc Feeney’s recruitment alongside James Courtney completes Tickford Racing’s endurance line-up.
