WILL Davison will once again have brother Alex Davison as a co-driver for the 2019 Pirtek Enduro Cup.

It marks the fourth season that the brothers will tackle the Supercars endurance races together, 23Red Racing reuniting Will and Alex last year after two prior tilts with Erebus in 2014-15.

“I am super excited to have the chance to work with Alex again,” Will Davison said. “It’s pretty special to have the chance to drive with your brother.

“He did an exceptional job last year, so continuity on this front will serve us well, especially as this year we go straight into the Bathurst 1000.

“As a team we are in great shape and this is 100-percent our best chance to achieve great things together.”

Will currently sits fourth in the drivers’ championship standings after a strong start to 2019, with top-10 finishes in all six races held across the Adelaide 500 and Melbourne 400.

The good results come off the back of 23Red Racing’s move under the Tickford Racing umbrella in the off-season, with its #23 Mustang now run out of the latter’s Campbellfield headquarters.

“They punched above their weight last year and obviously have made huge strides as a customer of Tickford Racing and are off to a great start this year,” Alex Davison said.

“I have no doubts they’ll continue to improve throughout the year and we’ll be right in the thick of it come the enduros.”

While Will is a two-time winner of the Bathurst 1000, the Davison brothers’ best Mount Panorama result as a combination is a fourth placing in the dramatic 2014 race. Last year their best result across the Enduro Cup was an 11th place finish at the Sandown 500.

Alex will turn his first laps in the 23Red Racing Mustang in the Additional Drivers Practice session at the Tyrepower Tasmania SuperSprint next month.
