Tickford Autosport names three-pronged Super2 squad

TICKFORD Autosport has confirmed it will run three Gen2 Mustangs in the 2024 Dunlop Super2 Series.

The development arm of Tickford Racing has retained Brad Vaughan, signed Lochie Dalton from Brad Jones Racing and promoted its own junior driver Rylan Gray from Super3, while 2023 incumbent Elly Morrow has retired.

Vaughan, the 2022 Super3 champion, is targeting progress after a “learning season” headlined by two pole positions and two second-place finishes.

“I’ve had the highs of achieving pole positions, but aim to be more consistent in 2024,” he said.

“I’ve worked super hard in the off-season to make this happen.”

Also in the broader Tickford Autosport fold will be Charlie Nash and Seth Burchartz, the respective sons of team co-owners Rod Nash and Sven Burchartz.

Nash Jr will compete this year in both the Toyota Gazoo Racing Australia GR Cup and in Excels, while 17-year-old Burchartz is moving into Formula Ford.

“With our program enabling rising talent to grow within Tickford Autosport, we’re thrilled to have our drivers working on honing their skills with a broad support network around them,” said Tickford managing director Rod Nash.

“We’ve had the ultimate success in the past and 2024 is shaping up as a very exciting year for our team.”

Tickford enters the 2024 season with a streamlined Repco Supercars Championship program (four cars to two) and a new CEO in the form of Simon Brookhouse.
