- Preston Hire Racing
Team owner Charlie Schwerkolt enters his eighth season at the helm of his own Supercars team.
2016 will mark the first time that the #18 will appear on the grid as a single car team prepared from its new Dandenong workshop.
The shift follows two years for the #18 at Prodrive Racing (Australia), formerly known as Ford Performance Racing and one year with Walkinshaw Performance.
The #18 adorned the Championship winner in 2010 with James Courtney, and this year hopeful of a return to that level of form in 2016 with the combination of Triple Eight Race Engineering.
