27 May 2024

Team 18 has announced its line-up for the 2024 Supercars endurance races with the return of Michael Caruso and Warren Luff to the squad for the Sandown 500 and Bathurst 1000.

Caruso will partner up with Mark Winterbottom in the #18 DEWALT Racing Chevrolet Camaro for the fourth consecutive year, while Luff will join David Reynolds for the first time in the #20 Tradie Beer Racing Chevrolet Camaro.

Luff has again been released by Walkinshaw Andretti United to join Team 18 for the enduros after last year pairing with Scott Pye. This will mark Luff’s first time co-driving with Reynolds, with the pair entering their 23rd and 17th Great Race start this year respectively.

Caruso and Winterbottom will be among the most experienced lineups on the grid this year, with 39 combined starts to their name, teaming up over the last four seasons.

Caruso and Luff will attend the team’s next test day at Winton Motor Raceway on Thursday 30 May alongside Winterbottom and Reynolds.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to welcome Michael and Warren back as our co-drivers for the 2024 enduros,” said team owner Charlie Schwerkolt.

“Their wealth of experience speaks volumes, and alongside Frosty and Dave, we boast an incredibly formidable lineup for the endurance races.

“Michael’s a familiar face to us now and we’re excited to bring his energy back into the garage. We couldn’t be happier to have Luffy back and thankful for Walkinshaw Andretti United for releasing him to join us for the enduros.

‘Their combined knowledge and expertise will undoubtedly bolster our team’s efforts as we gear up for the endurance battles ahead.

“With the enduros still on the horizon, there’s plenty of preparation ahead. We’ll be getting Michael and Warren behind the wheel at our test day this Thursday to ensure they’re fully integrated with the team as a lot has changed since they were last with us.

“We’re committed to putting our best foot forward come September and having them onboard is a significant step in that direction.”
