Two-time Bathurst winner Will Davison and the 23Red Racing operation move to within the Tickford Racing umbrella in 2019.

Davison joined Phil Munday's new team last year, racing an ex-Tickford Falcon out of its own base in outer Melbourne.

He finished 15th in the championship, the top driver in a single-car operation, recording eight Top 10 finishes along the way.

That followed a two-year stint with Tekno Autosports that included Davison’s second Bathurst triumph, beating Shane van Gisbergen across the line by just 0.14 seconds in 2016.

He finished fourth in the championship that year, after two seasons and a single victory in the Erebus Motorsport Mercedes.

Davison’s previous two teams had been factory outfits on either side of the Supercars divide.

Two years with the Holden Racing Team that netted Davison’s maiden Bathurst victory and second in the points in 2009 was followed by three with Ford Performance Racing – now Tickford – from ’11.

Davison entered Supercars full-time with Dick Johnson Racing in 2006 and won his first races in ’08.

The Melbourne native took out the 2001 Australian Formula Ford Championship before moving to Europe for time in Formula Renault 2.0 and British Formula 3, and a stint as Australia’s driver in the one-make A1 Grand Prix Series across the summer of 2005/6.

He also boasts Formula 1 experience on his extensive resume having sampled a Minardi at Misano in Italy in 2004.
