Scott Pye confirmed at Triple Eight

Triple Eight Race Engineering has recruited Scott Pye as a co-driver for the Repco Supercars Championship endurance events in 2024.

Pye has signed a two-year deal with the squad he previously contested the Dunlop Super2 Series with more than a decade ago as Triple Eight replaces NASCAR-bound Shane van Gisbergen and Richie Stanaway after the Kiwi signed on at Grove Racing as a full-time driver.

Although van Gisbergen hasn’t outrightly ruled out racing in the endurance events next season, it is unlikely due to clashes with the NASCAR calendar. Having already recruited Will Brown to its full-time roster for 2024, it left an endurance spot free.

Pye will finish his tenure at Team 18 after Adelaide and holds more than a decade of experience as a full-time Supercars racer, enjoying a race victory when at Walkinshaw Andretti United alongside multiple podium finishes at Bathurst.

It’s likely Pye is to join Brown for the endurance events, albeit this has not been confirmed by the team.

“I’m really excited to welcome Scotty back to the Triple Eight family since his last stint with the team over a decade ago,” said fellow endurance co-driver and Team Principal Jamie Whincup.

“Scotty’s experience is evident and his addition to the team as a co-driver for Red Bull Ampol Racing next year will be invaluable.

“He still has plenty to prove in the category and with the support of an incredible team around him, I think he will flourish.

“There will no doubt be a bit of chatter regarding who Scotty will team up with in 2024, but those are conversations we’ll have once we kick off the 2024 season.

“Nonetheless, he will complement either of our full-time drivers massively.”

Pye is thrilled by the opportunity to re-join Triple Eight as success continues to come for the team following van Gisbergen and Stanaway’s Great Race success.

“I am really excited by the opportunity to return to the Triple Eight family from next season as a co-driver,” said Pye.

“It certainly feels like a bit of a homecoming for me having started my Supercars journey in Super2 with the team.

“I am looking forward to working with the unbelievable group of people in their team and am excited for the opportunity to go to the biggest races of the year with a real chance at success.

“You’re only as good as your team and I am as driven as ever to help Triple Eight continue their winning tradition.”
