Supercars Championship outfit Team 18 has today announced that they are set to part ways with driver Scott Pye at the conclusion of the 2023 Repco Supercars Championship season.

Pye has been an integral member of Team 18 since he joined as the team’s expansion driver in 2020 and delivered the first three podiums for the team as a standalone outfit in the same year.

Pye sits 13th in the championship, with Team 18 seventh in the teams’ standings after the eighth round of the season at The Bend Motorsport Park.

“It has been an incredible journey with Team 18 over the last four years, and I’m grateful for the experiences we’ve shared as a group, said Pye.

“I want to thank the team, the crew on my #20 car, and my fans for their unwavering support.

“I’m excited for what the future will bring as I look ahead to new opportunities in the sport.”

Team 18 remains fully focussed on performance in the final four events of this year’s Supercars Championship, including the upcoming endurance races at Sandown and Bathurst.

“Scott Pye has been a valued driver for Team 18 over the last four years and has contributed immensely to the growth and success of the team,” said Team 18 Owner/Team Principal Charlie Schwerkolt.

“He has produced some amazing moments in his time, including when he delivered our first three podiums as a standalone outfit in 2020, as well as a host of standout performances that will be etched in our history.

“We thank him for his hard work, dedication and professionalism and wish him all the best in his future racing activities.

“We will continue to keep our foot firmly on the throttle as we aim to deliver our best possible performance in the endurance races and the remaining four rounds of the championship.”

Further announcements regarding the team’s 2024 driver line-up will be communicated in due course.
