Lee Holdsworth announces shock retirement

Lee Holdsworth announces shock retirement

A little over a week after celebrating his 500th race start Lee Holdsworth  has dropped a huge announcement this morning that he will be retiring from full-time driving at the end of the 2022 season.

This comes after Lee was dumped out of the field in 2020, left without a seat for the next season and went on to return and secure Bathurst Victory with Chaz Mostert in 2021 and a return to full-time driving in 2022 with Grove Racing.

The supercars veteran took to Instagram to make the announcement this morning ” After considerable thought, I have now made the difficult decision to call it a day on my career as a full-time Supercars driver.
I’ve lived and breathed this sport since I was six years old and had the privilege of being a Supercars driver for over 17 years.  It’s required huge sacrifices, hard work and commitment, but above all else, it’s required enormous support from my family.  For that, I am extremely grateful.

Signing off, Lee said What a ride! Thanks to everyone who has been a part of it”
