In just his first season with TEKNO, Will Davison achieved the incredible, finishing first at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 and holding out the team’s former driver Shane van Gisbergen by a mere 0.14 seconds in a dash to the finish.
Davison shifted to steer Triple Eight equipment with TEKNO after two tough seasons with Erebus Motorsport; though he did achieve a win and pole position in the unique Mercedes-Benz AMG E63 during his tenure.
2016’s Bathurst result took his tally at Mount Panorama to two after winning with Garth Tander in 2009 at the Holden Racing Team on his way to finishing second in the title fight that year.
Davison finished third in the championship a few years later with Ford Performance Racing (now Prodrive) in 2013 and after learning about TEKNO’s car and setup last year, is sure to feature on the podium this season.
The #19 racer also boasts Formula One experience on his extensive motor racing resume having previously tested for Minardi at Misano, Italy in 2004, following in the footsteps of his late grandfather Lex Davison, who was a four-time Australian Grand Prix winner.
