Lee Holdsworth has officially been signed by Tickford Racing to drive the No.5 Mustang in 2019, with The Bottle-O renewing its relationship with Team Tickford.
With 417 race starts to his name, it's a positive move for Tickford Racing signing Holdsworth as one of Supercars most experienced drivers.
While he had a lack-lustre 2018 season, the 35-year old still posted his season best results in the final round this year in Newcastle and is looking forward to the 2019 season.
"I'm pumped to be teaming up with Tickford Racing and The Bottle-O", Holdsworth said.
"Even though they feel they had a tough year, I believe Tickford Racing is still one of the best teams in the paddock. I'm feeling fit and driving as well as ever, so I'm reay to show what I've got."
Holdsworth's move away from Team 18 will see a spot to potentially be filled by Mark Winterbottom, who announced his departure from Tickford Racing in early November.
Lee Holdsworth will debut with Tickford Racing at the Superloop Adelaide 500, as one of the first drivers to drive the Ford Mustang in the Supercars Championship.
