Team 18 has announced it will part ways with Scott Pye at the end of the 2023 Repco Supercars season.
David Reynolds is tipped to team with Mark Winterbottom at Team 18 in 2024, with the door opened by the departure of Pye.
Pye joined Team 18 when it expanded to two entries in 2020, scoring three podiums for the team that season but none since.
“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,” says 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 owner Charlie Schwerkolt added: “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.
“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.”
