Garry Jacobson will make his Supercars return in Tickford Racing’s new-look enduro line-up.

Jacobson and Tyler Everingham join incumbents James Moffat and Zak Best at the Ford team for the Penrite Oil Sandown 500 and Repco Bathurst 1000.

It reunites Jacobson with Tickford, with the two combining to win the 2016 Super2 title.

Jacobson also raced in the 2017 enduros for the team alongside Jason Bright.

September's Sandown 500 will be Jacobson's first Supercars start since he departed PremiAir Racing midway through the 2022 season.

Everingham will make his Tickford debut, having raced for Team 18 alongside Scott Pye last year.

Jacobson, Everingham, Moffat and Best are set to test Declan Fraser's #56 TRADIE Mustang at Wednesday's Sydney Motorsport Park pre-season test.

Fraser has been ruled out of Wednesday's test due to illness.

“We’re very pleased to welcome Garry back to the family at Tickford,” Tickford CEO and Team Principal Tim Edwards said.

“We obviously worked together for a couple of years and had some great results, so it’s great to have him back in the team for this year’s enduros.

"For Garry to come in with so much recent experience at this level is a big plus, he’s shown before that he is a darn good driver and we think he’ll excel in the environment we have here.

"Of course we have some great memories together already: winning Super2 title a few years back, and he did a very good job as a rookie co-driver in 2017.


“We’re very excited to welcome him back to Tickford and are looking forward to creating more memories at Sandown and Bathurst later this year.”

Moffat and Best return for their sixth and third consecutive enduro seasons with Tickford.

The former finished on the podium with Cam Waters in the last two editions of the Repco Bathurst 1000.

Best made solo wildcard starts for Tickford last year, and debuted in the top flight alongside Jack Le Brocq in the 2021 Great Race.

Edwards added: "Continuing with Moff and Zak is obviously great news as well.

“Zak got unlucky at Bathurst last year but no one questions his ability, and Moff’s been fantastic, two Bathurst podiums and one or two ‘could have beens’ will tell you that.

"We're really pleased with the addition of Tyler and when you look at the driver group in its entirety I think we've got a great mix of experience there.

"We're very happy to have these four guys in our stable and we’re confident they’ll give us a great shot both at the Sandown 500 and Bathurst 1000.”

The team will confirm the combinations for Sandown and Bathurst in due course.

The 2023 Repco Supercars Championship will commence at the Thrifty Newcastle 500 on March 10-12.
