Castrol x Tickford Relationship
Thomas Randle, 25, raced the No. 55 Castrol Racing Ford Mustang as a wild card on three occasions in 2021, having previously enjoyed an association with Castrol that dates back to 2017.
“Obviously having Castrol’s backing of our wild card entry this year with Tickford Racing has been fantastic, and we’re thrilled to be able to take this partnership to the next level in 2022 and beyond,” said Thomas.
It’s surreal to see my name on the window of the green machine, and to join the list of Castrol Racing drivers is an amazing honour. Castrol been an instrumental part in so many historic moments in Australian motorsport, and we definitely want to create our own in the years to come.”
Thomas stays busy off the race track, studying for a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering at university, as well as running his own simulator driver training experience business in Melbourne.
Cameron Waters is now a Tickford Racing veteran and a star in the Supercars Championship.
Waters has proved he is a champion in the making after taking to the top step of the podium at the Sandown 500 in 2017, before announcing his intentions as he charged to second place in the 2020 and 2021 Bathurst 1000s.
During his debut season in the main game in 2016, Waters earnt himself the Mike Kable Young Gun Award for his standout performance which he scored after taking an empathic pole position in Perth, two fourth place finishes at the Adelaide 500 and then at the Bathurst 1000.
The Victorian was just 17 years-of-age when he debuted at Bathurst, becoming the youngest ever driver to start the Bathurst 1000. He made history as well that year when he became the youngest Australian Formula Ford champion.
Waters was able to skyrocket through the junior tiers, with a single season in Super2 before being called up as Jack Perkins’ co-driver at Tickford Racing during their endurance campaign in 2014.
The very next year, Waters then filled in for now team-mate Chaz Mostert, who was sidelined due to a horrific accident at Bathurst.
Waters is regarded as one of the best talents in Australian motorsport, and you'll never have to look too far down the lap charts to find his name..
James Courtney is a decorated driver, a Supercars champion and recognised internationally for his skills as a karter.
Over his career Courtney has had a taste of F1 machinery as a test driver and had his Supercars Championship debut in 2006 with the Stone Brothers Racing outfit.
The Western-Sydney raised driver won the 2010 Supercars Championship and has 15 race wins to his name and four Bathurst 1000 podiums.
Courtney joined the Tickford Racing team mid-2020 and found himself back in a Ford for the first time since his Championship success.
The 2022 Supercars season represents a huge opportunity for Jake Kostecki, who joins his first top-tier Supercars team.
Kostecki has joined Tickford Racing after spending two years with Matt Stone Racing, and it's an opportunity that will give him confidence and stability.
The Perth-born driver grew up around motorsport, competing and winning in karts before making an early jump into Supercars racing. He raced in the V8 TourinG car class (for older model Supercars at just the age of 15). He quickly progressed through the Super2 ranks before landing into the Supercars Championship where, despite racing for smaller teams, has always impressed with speed and ability.
Up until the start of 2022, Kostecki's best championship result was fifth place at Hidden Valley in 2020, but the likeable 22 year old will be keen to add his first set of trophies to his cabinet with his move to the proven Castrol-powered Tickford Racing squad
