Chris Pither will depart PremiAir Racing at the end of the current season.

While the New Zealander will race the car at the final two rounds of 2022 at the Gold Coast and Adelaide events, he will leave the team ahead of 2023. 

Pither was recruited alongside Garry Jacobson for PremiAir Racing’s maiden season, with the latter replaced by James Golding midway through 2022. 

Speculation has linked Tim Slade with a move to PremiAir Racing in 2023, with Todd Hazelwood already confirmed to take Slade’s place at Blanchard Racing Team. 

“It is no secret that things came together very quickly at the start of the 2022 season for us as a new team,” said PremiAir Racing team boss Peter Xiberras. 

“Chris’ input with his knowledge of the car as we created a whole new program while jumping straight into events was much appreciated.

“While we may not be working together following the conclusion of the current season, we wish Chris all the best and look forward to racing him in the future.”

Team principal Matt Cook added. “Supercar racing is a team effort and Chris came to PremiAir Racing with valuable knowledge.

“[He] has been an integral part of our development across the year, and his commitment to striving for results is commendable.

“We thank him for all of his efforts across the year as we have raced around the country, and we wish him all the best.”
