Outgoing Tickford boss’ special send-off gift

OUTGOING Tickford Racing boss Tim Edwards has received a special surprise farewell gift today at the VAILO Adelaide 500.

Edwards was presented with a special dedicated helmet by the team that will be worn by Cam Waters for the weekend aboard the #43 Monster Energy Mustang.

It features a special blue and black design with various messages from a range of long-time Tickford staff, including Waters, Tickford Racing co-owner Rod Nash and Matty Roberts as well as Supercars CEO Shane Howard.

It also includes a range of team statistics and logos of the three banners the team has raced under – Ford Performance Racing, Prodrive Racing Australia and Tickford Racing.

V8 Sleuth’s coverage of the VAILO Adelaide 500 is proudly presented by Bad Boy Mowersexplore the world of Bad Boy Mowers with the new Spring/Summer catalogue of high-performance mowers here.

The helmet will find a permanent home with Edwards after Waters finishes wearing it this weekend; it will be just the second drivers helmet to be in his possession from a long career in motorsport in sportscars, Formula 1 and Supercars.

“I knew nothing about it, the whole team presented it to me before Practice 1 today,” Edwards told V8 Sleuth.

“The only other driver helmet I have got is a Mika Salo helmet from 1989.”

Edwards will move in the aftermath of this event to a role at Supercars as General Manager of Motorsport.
