- Supercheap Auto Racing
Established in December 2002 after UK giant Prodrive bought Glenn Seton Racing, this four-Ford squad becomes known as Tickford Racing in 2018.
The team won back-to-back Bathurst 1000s under the Ford Performance Racing banner and then its maiden drivers’ title with Mark Winterbottom in 2015 under new ownership as Prodrive Racing Australia.
Using a Racing Entitlement Contract owned by Rod Nash, 2014 Bathurst winner Chaz Mostert paired up with Steve Owen to win the team’s first PIRTEK Enduro Cup last year.
Mostert won three races and was the team’s top finisher in the 2017 championship in fifth place.
Kiwi Richie Stanaway enters Supercars as a rookie this year following an impressive career in Europe, and strong impact as a co-driver including winning Sandown in 2017 with Cameron Waters.
Tickford Racing’s other two Falcons will be driven by Winterbottom and Waters in 2018.
