Tickford Racing has revealed its fourth and final 2023 livery, with TRADIE backing Declan Fraser’s rookie campaign.

Fraser will drive the #56 TRADIE Mustang in the 2023 Repco Supercars Championship.

Underwear and workwear brand TRADIE, a long-time backer of Tickford, took naming rights of the #56 last season.

The car has a new look for 2023, with digital financial service company MoneyMe also sponsoring the car.

TRADIE takes primary position on the sides of the car, with MoneyMe featuring on the bonnet.

The #56 is predominately black with yellow features, including a yellow grille.

Fraser will have to wait until after this Wednesday’s all-in Sydney Motorsport Park test to drive the car in its new livery.

The Queenslander will miss the test day due to illness, with Fraser hospitalised following last week’s Winton shakedown.

Regardless, Fraser — the 2022 Super2 champion — is excited to get his full-time debut season underway.

“I kind of can’t believe it, it’s all starting to feel real now,” Fraser said.

”It’s been a crazy time these last couple of months, coming off the back of winning the Super2 championship, to signing with Tickford Racing, and looking ahead to my first full-time season in the main game, it’s a really exciting time.


"It’s going to be a massive learning curve for myself as a driver but the car looks awesome and the team’s done an amazing job building the cars over the last few months.

I can’t wait to get out on track and represent the TRADIE brand and the Tickford team, and hopefully we can put together a really successful year.”

Tickford will again run four cars, with Fraser joining Cam Waters, James Courtney and Thomas Randle.

Fraser will also share the grid with former Super2 rivals Matt Payne and Cameron Hill, who will race for Penrite Racing and Matt Stone Racing respectively.

“The new cars are going to create such a great atmosphere for the fans,” Fraser added.

“Being one of three rookies this season, it will be awesome to race against my former Super 2 competitors at the top level, and racing in the brand-new generation cars is going to be awesome.

"I’ve done just as many races in these cars as every other driver, so this year is the perfect opportunity for me to make my debut and hopefully mix it up at the front.

"I have been prepping so hard to get ready for the season and the wait’s finally over. I can’t wait to get out there and have a great year with the TRADIE Racing crew."

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

Tickets are on sale on Supercars.com and Ticketek.com.
