Supercars championship-winning team Tickford Racing has announced the establishment of Tickford Engineering, a new, engineering-focused venture for the Campbellfield-based company.

With a wide range of manufacturing and design resources, including a team of 60 specialists skilled in engineering, design, and manufacturing, Tickford Engineering will aim to use its agility and experience gained in motorsport to execute projects in various industries including automotive, aerospace, and defence.

By leveraging its wealth of industry expertise, Tickford Engineering intends to stand at the forefront of technological advancements while providing its clients with the best possible solutions.

"The introduction of Tickford Engineering represents a significant milestone in our journey,” said Rod Nash, co-owner and Managing Director.

“We are immensely proud of our team and eagerly anticipate offering clients a uniquely agile, flexible, and competent project partner."

The program will be overseen by race-winning Supercars engineer Dilan Talabani, who will assume the role of Business Development Manager of Tickford Engineering.

After a stint as a race engineer at Tickford Racing in the mid-2010s, Talabani returned to the squad last year to engineer Zak Best in the Dunlop Super2 Series.

Now engineering Tickford rookie Brad Vaughan in Super2, Talabani will retain that role to dovetail his involvement in Tickford Engineering.


"I am thrilled and honoured to offer the skills and capability that we have at Tickford Engineering,” Talabani said.

“We are currently engaging with Automotive OEM's and recognised industrial leaders amongst other exciting projects. We cater for designing minor upgrades to full engineering project control." 

Tickford Racing CEO and Team Principal Tim Edwards is confident that the new venture will allow the company to showcase the design and engineering capabilities of the business that has won over 80 Supercars races, including two Bathurst 1000s.

"The launch of Tickford Engineering is more than an extension of our brand,” Edwards said.

"It's a reiteration of our promise to deliver leading-edge solutions in an industry that is continuously evolving.

"Our team of specialists are not just innovators; they're pioneers paving the path for the future of engineering."

As Tickford Engineering takes its first steps, Tickford Racing prepares to step into the sixth round of the 2023 Supercars season this weekend.

The team will have six cars in action at the NTI Townsville 500, four in the Repco Supercars Championship and a further two in the Dunlop Super2 Series.
