  • Cam Waters to shake down new Tickford Supercar

  • Waters and Thomas Randle have raced current chassis since 2023

  • New Tickford Supercar set to debut later in 2024

Tickford Racing will renew Cam Waters' 2024 championship attack with a brand new car, which is set for a shakedown ahead of its debut later this year.

Waters is set to get behind the wheel of a new Tickford Gen3 Mustang at Winton Motor Raceway for a shakedown on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old will shakedown the new Ford Mustang, chassis TR-30, ahead of the upcoming MSS Security Melbourne SuperSprint on March 21-24, which will be followed by the ITM Taupō Super400 in New Zealand on April 19-21.

"Yeah, shakedown tomorrow at Winton in the new car, so that'll be good," Waters told Supercars.com.

"The plan was always to either start making a new car, or build me one for the Grand Prix or New Zealand.

"It was more just when it’s fully ready and, after that, it’ll be good to go."

A number of teams came into 2024 with new chassis, with Erebus Motorsport and Triple Eight Race Engineering building new Chevrolet Camaros for their drivers.


Triple Eight put its new cars to work at the recent Thrifty Bathurst 500, with Broc Feeney and Will Brown sweeping the pole positions and wins.

Penrite Racing also built a new Mustang for Richie Stanaway, who impressed to fourth in Race 1, and fourth overall for the round.

It was a different story for Waters, who has raced chassis TR-28 since the beginning of 2023. Waters, who battled ill health in Bathurst, left the Mountain 20th in the points after a torrid weekend.

Waters won three races in TR-28 in 2023, including two of the last four races across the Gold Coast and Adelaide rounds.

Thomas Randle, meanwhile, has continued in chassis TR-26, and left Bathurst seventh in the points after racing to fourth in Race 2.

More cars will be on track this week, with Ryan Wood (Walkinshaw Andretti United) and Aaron Love (Blanchard Racing Team) set for rookie days, also on Tuesday at The Bend Motorsport Park.

Supercars will hit the track for the first time at the MSS Security Melbourne SuperSprint on March 21-24.
