Two-time Bathurst winner Will Davison joins the new 23Red Racing for the 2018 Supercars season.

Davison will race the Tickford Racing-built FG X Falcon that won last year’s Sandown 500 for the single-car operation established following Phil Munday’s buy-in at Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport.

A two-year spell with Tekno Autosports included Davison’s second Bathurst triumph, beating the man he replaced at the team - 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 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, following in the footsteps of his late grandfather Lex Davison, who was a four-time Australian Grand Prix winner.
