Walkinshaw Andretti United locks in co-drivers

Fabian Coulthard and Lee Holdsworth return as endurance co-drivers for Walkinshaw Andretti United.

06 February 2024

Walkinshaw Andretti United has announced the team’s 2024 endurance line-up, with the return of 2022 Bathurst 1000 runner-up Fabian Coulthard alongside 2021 Bathurst winner Lee Holdsworth.

Coulthard will be lined up with Ryan Wood in the Mobil 1 Truck Assist Racing #2 Ford Mustang and Holdsworth will partner with Chaz Mostert in the Mobil 1 Optus Racing #25 Ford Mustang at the Sandown 500 and Bathurst 1000 in 2024.

Alongside his role as Walkinshaw Andretti United foundation academy driver development advisor Warren Luff will also remain as a contracted driver with Walkinshaw Andretti United, with his 2024 driving plans to be announced in due course.

Coulthard enters his third consecutive season with Walkinshaw Andretti United after joining the team at the beginning of 2022, securing a podium finish at the Bathurst 1000 in his first year with the team.

Holdsworth returns to Walkinshaw Andretti United for a third season alongside Mostert, with their last race together finishing just shy of a Bathurst 1000 podium, after winning in 2021.

“We are absolutely rapt to have both Fabian and Lee back on board with the team again in 2024,” says team principal Bruce Stewart.

“There is no doubt the calibre of these drivers puts us in a really strong position alongside Ryan and Chaz come endurance season.

“Both Lee and Fabian recognise the path we are on as a team and want to be a part of that, they fit in to our culture very well – so we are really lucky to have them.

“We’re working on what an on-track program for Luffy in 2024 looks like, he’s been instrumental in helping develop our Super2 and foundation academy drivers here at WAU and will continue to do so this season.

“We have a big season ahead of us, but it will be fantastic to have Fabian, Lee and Warren immersed in the team. While there’s still a lot to play out before endurance season, we are really excited to see what the year brings.”
