Tickford Racing confirm line-up

Cameron Waters and Thomas Randle have been confirmed as spearheading Tickford Racing line-up for 2024.

After announcing it was downsizing its operations to two entries for next year’s Repco Supercars Championship, but although speculation placed Waters and Randle as the two drivers it was unofficial until now.

The delays surrounding the formal announcement are believed to be linked to rookie Declan Fraser after inking a two-year deal at the start of this season. Ending one year early, this has now been resolved as veteran James Courtney has found a new home at Blanchard Racing Team partnering rookie Aaron Love as the squad expands to two entries for 2024.

“2024 is going to be a complete freshen up of the team as we reduce to [two Teams Racing Charters],” said team co-owner Rod Nash.

“With Cam and Thomas leading our charge, we are laser-focused on elevating to the full potential of what our race team has been working on over the last couple of years.

“Cam is a consistent front-runner and Thomas has been advancing well towards his full potential, so with this change to the team and driver combination, we believe we can mix it with the best within our great category of Supercars.”

Waters has emerged as Ford’s leading title contender in the last period and will continue to enjoy Monster-backing into the future.

“I’m super excited about where the team is heading,” said Waters. “Rod, [co-owner] Sven [Burchartz], and [outgoing CEO] Tim [Edwards] have put a massive amount of work behind the scenes to allow us to make the next step forward.

“The two-car model excites me, and I can’t think of a better person to be teaming up with than Thomas. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into next year.”

Randle has been one of the biggest improvers this season and will welcome back Castrol as his major partner next season.

“I’m thrilled to be announcing today that I have re-signed with Tickford Racing to continue piloting the Castrol Racing Mustang full-time in 2024 and beyond,” he said.

“Castrol has been a long supporter of mine, so to continue this partnership into the future is fantastic.

“It’s been a great first two years in the championship, especially this year, grabbing my first pole position and podiums. Being more streamlined with two cars, and hopefully with all the parity stuff sorted, I feel like this is the team’s best chance of having a crack at winning the drivers’ title and teams’ championship. Bring it on!”

Tickford Racing’s confirmation just leaves the SCT Motorsport Camaro as the sole remaining seat for next year’s Repco Supercars Championship after Jack Smith stepped down after Adelaide.
