Bathurst winners bring back supercars | Gloucester attorney

Bathurst Champion Lee Holdsworth has another reason to celebrate after securing his return to full-time racing in the Supercars Championship next year.

Holdsworth, who was Chaz Mostert’s co-driver in his commanding win at Mount Panorama two weeks ago, has signed a one-year deal with Grove Racing for the 2022 championship.

He’ll team up with David Reynolds in a two-car Ford outfit.

The 38-year-old has been a regular in the Supercars field for the past two decades, but spent 2021 without a full-time seat and was happy to be back in the main game.

“I am overwhelmed by this opportunity and can’t wait to get back into the Supercars Championship full-time,” he said.

“My full-time campaign was canceled at the end of 2020 and it certainly wasn’t how I imagined leaving the sport.

“I now have a great opportunity at Grove Racing to end my full-time career in supercars while playing an important role in developing the team for the future.”

The Bathurst win with Walkinshaw Andretti United was Holdsworth’s first win on his 18th

Holdsworth has competed in over 470 races in his Supercars career, claiming four wins and 19 podiums with the best seventh place of his career in the 2010 championship.

The 2022 Supercars Championship starts March 4-6 in Newcastle.
