One of the worst kept secrets in Supercars was confirmed with Shell V Power racing announcing its 2021 lineup with Anton De Pasquale and Will Davison joining the team.
Managing Director and Co-owner of Shell V-Power Ryan Story says, Davison and De Pasquale are a great pairing and bring a mix of both youth and experience to the organisations lineup.
“They are an excellent combination. They are both fast, they both have runs on the board, and they will do very well for Dick Johnson Racing and the Shell V-Power Racing Team.
“Will is someone who is incredibly experienced and also well-known to the team. He really kick-started his full-time Supercars career here and drove for us from 2006 to 2008. So it’s somewhat of a homecoming, and we are please he’s joining the fold.
“In the case of Anton, he is one of the up and coming, next-generation drivers in the sport, and he’s shown his tremendous talent on the track and his professionalism off it. He’s a driver’s driver,” said Story.
Team Co-owner and Supercars Hall of Famer Dick Johnson said “Will and Anton are great new additions to our team, and I couldn’t be happier.
“I’ve known Will forever, and he showed again at Bathurst his exceptional speed and maturity. Anton is someone who caught my eye even before joining Erebus in 2018 with his exploits overseas. He’s a real talent and a future champion of the sport.”
With Davison having raced for Dick Johnson Racing in the early part of his career has said ““I’ve always maintained close relationships with Dick and Ryan over the years. I’m massively motivated to be back where my Supercars career started, and I’m looking forward to working closely with Anton,” said Davison.”
We’re excited to see the new chapter for the outfit after the departure of Penske racing and drivers Fabian Coulthard and Scott McLaughlin at the conclusion of 2020.
