Waters weighs in on Supercars future

THE intrigue around Cam Waters’ contract status continues to grow ahead of a silly season where most major players are locked in.

Some have suggested Waters is a free agent at the end of the season; his Tickford Racing team has strongly declared otherwise, citing that his top three 2022 championship finish automatically triggered a two-year extension (through ’25).

Speaking on this week’s Castrol Motorsport News Podcast, Waters calmly addressed the matter – albeit not giving any indication that he actually is under contract for 2024.

“Look, to be completely honest with you we haven’t really spoken about next season,” he said.

“We’re pretty early in the year still. I’m spending all my time and energy trying to make these (Gen3) things as quick as I can, and doing a bit of sprintcar stuff as well.

“I think we’ll start talking pretty soon, I would have thought.”

Waters joked he might make Tickford CEO Tim Edwards sweat a little during negotiations.

“I might play hard to get with Tim and not answer the odd call, might bring him a coffee occasionally or something,” he laughed.

“I don’t know, we haven’t had the discussion yet.”

Waters heroically flew the Ford flag at Symmons Plains and ended up with results of fourth, fourth and seventh in a weekend dominated by Erebus Motorsport and Triple Eight Chevrolets.

Erebus, Triple Eight and Dick Johnson Racing have all confirmed their 2024 line-ups already, while Chaz Mostert (Walkinshaw Andretti United), Matt Payne (Grove Racing), Mark Winterbottom (Team 18) and Andre Heimgartner (Brad Jones Racing) all others set to stay where they are.
