Team 18 has welcomed Australian workwear and lifestyle brand Tradie, alongside their alcohol brand Tradie Beer, as the major partner of the #20 Tradie Beer Racing Chevrolet Camaro to be driven by David Reynolds in the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship.

Reynolds, who switches from Grove Racing to Team 18 during the off-season on a multi-year deal, has eight Supercars race wins, including four podiums from the final four races of the 2023 season with victory on the streets of the Gold Coast.

The Tradie brand switches from Tickford Racing, where it was the naming-rights sponsor of Declan Fraser’s Ford Mustang in 2023.

“I’m really excited to partner up with Tradie Beer as my major partner with Team 18 and jump in a Camaro and hopefully win some races in 2024,” said Reynolds.

“I am really excited to partner up with Tradie Beer and have them on my Camaro. I like drinking beer, I like having fun, and they sort of go hand in hand, so it’s going to be an exciting year.

“I’m really looking forward to starting a new chapter. I’ve been with my last team for three years, so I’m starting something fresh. I’m in a Camaro now, so it’s going to be a little bit different for me, but I’m really looking forward to getting to know everyone at the team, understand how they work, see what knowledge I can bring and see how far we can get up the grid and win some races.

“I’m really looking forward to partnering with Frosty [Mark Winterbottom] again. I haven’t done that for a long time, but we stayed friends over that time, it’s going to be really fun.”

Team owner Charlie Schwerkolt added: “We’re thrilled to welcome Tradie Beer onboard as major backer for David Reynolds in 2024.

“Tradie are proudly Australian and aren’t afraid to do things differently and have a bit of fun, so it’s a perfect fit to pair up Tradie with Dave for what I’m sure will be an exciting year ahead on and off the track.

“We’re also proud to gear up with Tradie as the official workwear partner of Team 18, fitting our team in style in the workshop and all over the country during the 2024 championship.

“We can’t wait to show off the Tradie Beer Racing Camaro soon as we as we prepare to make a strong start in the upcoming season.”
