Lee Holdsworth says the end of his full-time Supercars career after 15 years was a « shock » as his Tickford Racing roster slipped to three entries for 2021.

The 37-year-old, three-time Race winner, joined Tickford in 2019 to replace Mark Winterbottom.

His two-year stint earned three podiums and a provisional pole for the Bathurst 1000 last year, but missed a seat for the 2021 season after the team failed was to get a fourth contract for racing authorizations to replace the boss Phil Munday – whose entry has been operated by Tickford since 2019 – at Brad Jones Racing, which was sold by the former 23Red.

Tickford used to have four of its own RECs, gave supercars however, one back before the 2019 season so he could carry out Munday’s post, which was carried out by Will Davison until the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the withdrawal of title sponsor Milwaukee Tools.

Autosport goes there on the assumption that Tickford’s attempts to secure an additional REC met opposition from rivals who refused to expand the network to 25 cars.

That means there will only be three full-time Tickford cars this season who will be driven by Jack Le Brocq, Cam Waters and James Courtney.

« We are very grateful that we have worked with Lee for the past two seasons and we are equally sad that we will not race together in 2021 .  » said Tim Edwards, CEO of Tickford Racing.

« Aside from his ability behind the wheel, Lee was one of the most popular people in our garage and pit lane.

 » Our crew, sponsors and members have only good things about him and we will certainly miss him to have him in our garage and workshop in 2021.

« We wish Lee all the best for the coming year and look forward to seeing him as a friend on the track in the near future See. « 

Holdsworth hit social media on the news, calling the sudden end of his full-time career a » shock « . He also signaled his intention to get a top co-driver role for Bathurst 1000.

« It’s a shock and it feels premature, but that’s how it’s played.

 » I’ve been lucky enough to have been for so long to stay in the sport and I am extremely grateful to those who took part.

« I haven’t won the Bathurst 1000 yet, but you can bet I’ll be back with the best chance this year!

« Thank you to all of the hard working people at Tickford Racing. I’ve really enjoyed working together over the past few years.

Holdsworth made his full-time Supercars debut at Garry Rogers Motorsport in 2006 and took a maiden race win at Oran Park the following season.

He added another in 2010 Added victory for GRM at Homebush (above) before joining Stone Brothers Racing for the 2012 season.

However, that was only a year before the team was sold and Erebus Motorsport became, initially with its Mercedes hardware had to fight.

In Winton 2014 there was a victory in a difficult form before he teamed up with Charlie Schwerkolt in Team 18.

That too did not provide regular results for the front run. Tickford eventually threw a lifeline to Holdsworth when Winterbottom departed in late 2018.
