The elder of the Davison brothers returns to the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship as a co-driver with Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport this season, partnering with Alex Rullo.

Davison missed out on a co-drive in the enduros in 2016, but was thrown straight back into sprint duties with LDM at Ipswich and Sydney this year in its #3 Commodore.

A highly experienced and successful Porsche driver in Carrera Cup and GT racing around the world, Davison still has unfinished business in Supercars.

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.

His tenure with SBR ended at the completion of 2011, spending a single year without a full-time drive before returning with Charlie Schwerkolt Racing in 2013.

After that, he co-drove with Will Davison at Erebus in 2014 and 2015 before his brother's move to Tekno Autosports ended the pairing.
