TICKFORD RACING

Since the team's inception, Castrol has always worked hand in hand to maximise team performance on-track. The list of achievements during the 15 year Castrol/Tickford Racing partnership includes several memorable Bathurst and Drivers’ Championship performances.

 

In 2019 Tickford Racing and Castrol embark on a new challenge to extract the true engine performance of the Ford Mustang.

“As a driver there are enough things to think about on race day without having to think about whether your engine oil is up to the task. In talking with our own engineers and the Technical Team at Castrol, I can say with confidence that using Castrol means we’re giving ourselves every advantage on race day.”

Cam Waters, Tickford Racing



 

CAM WATERS

Cameron Waters is a young rising star in the Supercars Championship and in his fourth year with Tickford Racing.

 

Waters, who is 24 years old, has proved he is a champion in the making after taking to the top step of the podium at the Sandown 500 in 2017.

 

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 teammate Chaz Mostert, who was sidelined due to a horrific accident at Bathurst.

 

Tickford Racing then signed Waters as a full-time driver for the 2016 season.

 

Waters will pilot the #6 Castrol EDGE-oiled Tickford Racing Ford Mustang in 2019.

LEE HOLDSWORTH

Holdsworth is a hardened racer with over 14 years of Supercars experience under his belt and is the latest signing for Tickford Racing.

 

The 36-year-old made his Super2 debut in 2004 with Robert Smith Racing, which aided in an endurance race campaign and a drive in the season finale at Eastern Creek.

 

Holdsworth continued with Robert Smith Racing in 2006 in the development series while contesting the Supercars endurance campaign with Holden's Garry Rogers Motorsport (GRM). The team then recruited him full time in the Supercars main game in the following year.

 

During his time at GRM, Holdsworth racked up 14 podiums including a win in Oran Park in 2007 and at Sydney Motorsport Park in 2010.

 

Holdsworth then made the switch to Ford, signing with Stone Brothers Racing where he finished the season points in eighth position.

 

The following year, Stone Brothers evolved into Erebus Motorsport and Holdsworth found himself behind the wheel of the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. Debuting that new car, Holdsworth managed to steer the German marque into a win at Winton Raceway the next year.

 

Holdsworth’s journey to Tickford Racing took a pit stop by Holden's Charlie Schwerkholt Racing in 2015.

 

 

Holdsworth will steer the #5 Tickford Racing Castrol EDGE oiled Ford Mustang in 2019.

JACK LE BROCQ

Though he is a newcomer to the team’s main game line up in 2020, Jack Le Brocq is no stranger to Tickford Racing. 


The 27-year old who will pilot the No. 55 Castrol EDGE-backed Supercheap Auto Ford Mustang this season, last drove for the team in 2016 Super2 Series, where he finished second to team mate Garry Jacobson.


Le Brocq stepped up to the main game as a full time driver in 2018 with  Tekno Autosports, posting a best finish of fifth at Symmons Plains. 


He remained at Tekno in 2019 before leaving the team end of the season to join Tickford Racing.

 

Stepping into the seat vacated by Chaz Mostert, Le Brocq heads into 2020 with the tools the team believes fit his ability, and armed with three team  mates (including the Boost Mobile Racing entry of James Courtney).
