According to AUTO ACTION, Tim Edwards is expected to be confirmed as the ‘Supercars Director of Motorsport’ following the departure of Adrian Burgess. Burgess is anticipated to join Team 18 as the team manager, causing tension among other Supercars teams with threats of legal action. Although none of the parties involved have officially confirmed the moves, negotiations are reportedly progressing well, and the appointments are expected to be finalized before the season finale in Adelaide. Edwards, who has been a target for Supercars since announcing his departure from Tickford, brings extensive experience in team management and is highly regarded in the industry. Supercars hopes that his knowledge of Gen3 engineering and commercial challenges will help address outstanding issues and provide a positive direction for the future. The move has received support from several team principals.
