James Courtney will spearhead a new-look, two-car Tekno Autosports in 2020, based out of Sydney.
The squad will relocate from the Gold Coast to Sydney, initially in a temporary facility, before moving into a new building at Sydney Motorsport Park.
TEKNO entered V8 Supercars in 2010, with team owner Jono Webb scoring his first full-time drive in the category after winning the 2009 V8 Development Series. The team ran a car out of Dick Johnson Racing with Webb taking a memorable race victory in diabolical weather conditions at the Sydney 500.
In 2011, TEKNO became a standalone operation, before switching to Holdens in 2012, with Michael Patrizi joining Webb in an expanded two-car line-up.
The team updated to two brand-new VF Commodores in 2013, fully supported by the Championship-winning Triple Eight Race Engineering organisation.
The highly rated Shane van Gisbergen also joined the team that year, along with sponsorship from VIP Petfoods and Darrell Lea.
The wave of change was the catalyst for a successful V8 season, Van Gisbergen bookending the season with victories at the Clipsal 500 and Sydney 500.
Webb stepped back from driving duties in 2014, the team electing to focus on Van Gisbergen while still receiving full technical support from Triple Eight – and additional sponsorship from Lucas Oil.
Van Gisbergen’s departure at the end of 2015 opened the door for Davison to join the team and he immediately delivered results; along with the Bathurst win he was also victorious at Symmons Plains, and finished fifth in the title thanks to consistent performances throughout the year.
The team will field Dunlop Super2 Series graduate Jack Le Brocq, the rising star and one of five rookies on the grid for 2018.
