Ford teams up, Erebus down in Live Pit Lane shuffle

22 May
The pit lane will look markedly different at the next round in Darwin
  • Triple Eight retains first two garages

  • Reigning champs Erebus drop from third to eighth

  • WAU, Tickford jump to second and third

Walkinshaw Andretti United and Tickford Racing were the biggest winners, and Erebus Motorsport the biggest losers, in a big Live Pit Lane shuffle in Perth.

WAU and Tickford returned to victory lane over the weekend, with Chaz Mostert winning on Saturday before Cam Waters took home the Sunday win, courtesy of a penalty to Mostert.

The pit lane will have a different look when Supercars returns to Darwin next month, with the Ford teams moving up, and Erebus down after a nightmare weekend.

The season began at Mount Panorama with the pit lane order allocated off the 2023 championship standings, with reigning champions Erebus Motorsport at the front of the field.

From Round 2 onwards, the pit lane order will be allocated by Supercars based on the final classification of the team points report of the previous event.

Teams' championship leaders Red Bull Ampol Racing will remain at the front in Darwin, but Penrite Racing has ceded second position to WAU, with Tickford moving up.

Dick Johnson Racing dropped from fourth to fifth, while Matt Stone Racing and Team 18 traded places. The margin between WAU and Tickford is just 80 points, with Penrite Racing just 10 points back.


The Shell V-Power squad is only 45 points behind the Grove team, meaning the four Ford outfits are covered by just 135 points.

There could be more movement after Darwin, where drivers will be awarded 150 points for race victories, along with five additional fastest lap bonus points.

The new-look pit lane order will be locked in ahead of the upcoming betr Darwin Triple Crown on June 14-16. Tickets for the event are on sale now.
