Tickford confirms Randle for Supercars enduros

Tickford Racing has finally confirmed that Thomas Randle will partner Lee Holdsworth at this year's long-distance Supercars races.

Tickford confirms Randle for Supercars enduros

The team's Super2 star has long been linked to the seat alongside Holdsworth, Motorsport.com having first reported that he was set for the drive back in January.

However it's only now been formally confirmed, the team announcing the deal off the back of Randle's main series debut as a wildcard at The Bend.

“I’m extremely happy to join Tickford Racing and Lee for the enduros this year,” said Randle.

“Having been around the world trying to forge a racing career, I came back to Australia with the goal of being a Supercars driver. So I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to race with Lee and The Bottle-O Racing Team at some of the biggest races in Australia.”

Tickford boss Tim Edwards added: “Tom impressed us from the word go last year, so we’re very excited to have him joining our main game team for the Enduro Cup.

“Coming from a largely single-seater background, he had a very steep learning curve, but he’s handled it extremely well.

"He’s been competitive from day one, and he’s only gotten better since, which is indicative of his talent and work ethic.

"We’ve had a lot of success with our Super2 programme over the years, guys like Cam [Waters] and Chaz [Mostert] are evidence of that.

"This is the next step in Tom’s development and we’re looking forward to seeing him in The Bottle-O Mustang.”

Randle impressed across The Bend weekend, running consistently in the Top 10 during Friday practice before grabbing a pair of 17th place finishes in the two races.
