James Moffat stepped back to enduro duties with Tickford Racing in 2018, after seven full-time Supercars seasons. In 2023, he returns with Cam Waters as they chase Bathurst victory after two straight podiums.
The Ford squad swooped to sign Moffat when he left Garry Rogers Motorsport at the end of 2017. He spent the 2017, 2018 and 2019 seasons paired with Chaz Mostert, combining for a Gold Coast race win in '18.
Moffat finished second in Bathurst with Waters in 2021, and third in 2022.
The son of touring car legend Allan Moffat, James had a slightly unorthodox path to Supercars.
Campaigns in the Lotus Trophy and V8 Utes in 2004 and '05 were followed by a move into the Australian Formula Ford Championship in '07.
Porsches were next with a single season in Carrera Cup, Moffat then entering the Dunlop Super2 Series with Sonic in 2009.
He was a race winner on debut in Adelaide, finishing runner-up overall and winning the coveted Mike Kable Young Gun Award for Supercars' best new talent.
Third in Super2 in 2010 was paired with an enduro debut with Ford Performance Racing – now known as Tickford.
Dick Johnson Racing gave Moffat his main game chance in 2011; two seasons there were followed by three with Nissan Motorsport, and two with GRM through to '17.
Moffat was the first race winner in a Nissan Altima, at Winton in 2013, and took second place at Bathurst alongside Taz Douglas one year later.
