Team SYDNEY today reveal their Local Legends partnership and confirm driver Alex Davison is set to compete Car 19 for the Championship season.
Alex Davison has extensive Sportscar and Touring Car racing experience competing in Porsche Carrera Cup, Porsche Supercup, Le Mans Series, and Supercars both as a full-time racer and co-driver alongside some of the categories best (Whincup, Coulthard, Van Gisbergen, Davison).
Alex is the older brother of Will Davison, grandson of Lex Davison (four-time Australian Grand Prix Winner), cousin of James Davison.
Local Legends is an Australian owned company that have traditionally crafted premium quality beef jerky and meat snacks for almost 50 years. Outside of their products, Local Legends recognise the extraordinary acts of courage, commitment and actions that support others, taken by everyday people – the “Legends” in our local communities.
Jonathon Webb comments.
“We’re grateful for the opportunity to partner with Local Legends for the 2020 season, the product is great and the stories from the Local “Legends” in our communities are pretty inspiring.”
“Alex was in the forefront of our endurance cup drivers list, we’d been communicating prior to James’ departure from Team SYDNEY, so when the opportunity arose for Alex to take a full-time seat in a Team SYDNEY supercar, it was an easy decision to place him in Car 19 for the remainder of the season.”
“The Team is focused on the long haul; we know that the restructure our team has undertaken this season was not going to be easy. We are committed to the project and providing benefit to our Sydney base, our sponsor parties and followers.”
Alex Davison comments.
“I’m excited to be back in the Supercars championship full time with Team SYDNEY. I’ve missed racing Supercars a lot and am still as passionate and motivated as ever to go racing. I can’t wait to get on track Thursday and am looking forward to working and growing with Team SYDNEY throughout the year.”
