The elder of the Davison brothers returns to the V8 Supercars Championship as a co-driver with brother Will at Erebus Motorsport this season.
Having driver the Charlie Schwerkolt’s #18 entry run out of the Ford Performance Racing workshop last season – with a season best result of third at Phillip Island – Davison missed out on a full-time drive this time around.
Similarly, in 2012, he also missed out on a seat in the Championship, but contested the Porsche Carrera Cup and finished third in the all-Porsche series.
He competed in the endurance events for Dick Johnson Racing after three years at Stone Brothers Racing came to an end at the completion of 2011.
A highly experienced and successful Porsche driver in Carrera Cup and GT racing around the world, Davison still has unfinished business in the V8 Supercars Championship.
After racing overseas and then winning the local Porsche Carrera Cup title in 2004, Davison moved into V8 Supercars at the end of that season. A top 10 result in an older model car at Bathurst for the Castrol Perkins team showed promise but 2005 proved to be a nightmare year in an Autobarn-backed Commodore and he and Perkins parted ways before the end of the season.
After the split with Perkins, Davison became a very handy endurance signing. In 2006 and 2007 he drove the second Dick Johnson Racing Falcon with top 10 results at Bathurst in both years with rookie co-drivers.
In 2008 his international racing calendar only permitted him to race at Bathurst, where he joined Fabian Coulthard to rack up yet another top 10 finish in the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. Second place in the GT2 class of the Le Mans Series and an appearance at the world famous Le Mans 24 Hour that same year remain career highlights.
In 2009 he scored his first V8 Supercar podium finish at Hidden Valley in Darwin and continued his great form at the circuit with a pole position the following season.
