Supercars appoints Tim Edwards to management role
Tim Edwards will join Supercars as the new General Manager of Motorsport from January 2024.
The outgoing Tickford Racing boss will step into the role vacated by Adrian Burgess and will oversee the Supercars motorsport division as he switches from his team role into a leading position with the championship.
Edwards had been part of the Tickford squad – in its various guises – for nearly 20 seasons.
“Joining Supercars is a fantastic opportunity which I am delighted and privileged to accept,” he said.
“Virtually my entire adult life has been spent in motorsport, I’ve had the fortune to work and compete with some of the best organisations and at the greatest events and championships there are, and to step into this role with Supercars is very exciting both for me and my family.
“After 35 years working in what we call ‘team land,’ I look forward to doing my part from the category side to help us put on the best championship we possibly can.”
Supercars CEO Shane Howard was quick to welcome Edwards into his new role.
“We are thrilled to have someone of Tim’s calibre join Supercars as our new General Manager of Motorsport from next year,” he said.
“In such a highly competitive and technical championship, Tim’s extensive experience, leadership qualities, and success both in Supercars and abroad make him an excellent fit for the role.
“We believe his strategic vision and passion for the sport will be of tremendous value as we continue to drive Supercars upward in the years to come.”
“We extend our sincere thanks to Adrian for his dedicated service over the past five years, and welcome Tim to lead our motorsport program into the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship season.”
