Disc Brakes Australia (DBA) and Tickford Racing will extend their partnership into the 2022 Supercars season, with the leading brake developer continuing its role as the official brake partner of Tickford Racing.
The extended partnership with Tickford Racing will see the DBA brand present on the headlights of all four of the team’s Ford Mustang Supercars and on the driver suits and crew shirts, as well as a continued relationship with vehicle enhancement business Tickford, which debuted a DBA brake package on Tickford-enhanced Ford Rangers and Mustangs in 2021.
DBA General Manager of Sales ANZ Shane Jeffreys commented on the continued partnership, which comes as Tickford Racing prepares to enter four Ford Mustangs in the 2022 season.
“As we continue to expand our involvement in motorsport, we are very happy to continue our relationship with Tickford Racing into 2022,” Jeffreys said. “Our partnership with Tickford Racing aligns well with DBA’s heritage in motorsport and our focus on dedication and innovation, which has made for a very enjoyable partnership over the last year. We jointly got off to a running start in 2021 with Tickford’s on-track success and continued across the year with different activations and innovations across Tickford’s race and road going operations, and we’re looking forward to celebrating more successes and milestones in 2022.”
Tickford Racing CEO and Team Principal Tim Edwards expressed his enthusiasm for the expanded relationship with DBA and the 13-round season ahead.
“There’s a lot of excitement around Supercars and our team at the moment and extending our partnership with DBA just adds to that,” Edwards said. “As a team and business that strive to be the top of our industry, having partners with similar goals and histories is a real plus, and we certainly have that with DBA. We have a big year ahead and are looking forward to continuing to develop our relationship with DBA and sharing more successes on and off the track.”
Tickford Racing kicks off its 2022 season at the Sydney SuperNight, March 4-6 at Sydney Motorsport Park.
