Coulthard rules himself out of full-time WAU drive

by admin

Coulthard has decided to take himself out of the running for a full-time WAU drive, a position that seemed to be his for the taking after the recent Sydney SuperNight, where there was even talk of a single-year deal. Despite the rumors, Coulthard has chosen not to pursue the full-time return next year, opting instead to continue with his Carrera Cup programme and only drive for WAU at the Supercars enduros.

This decision leaves Ryan Wood as the clear choice to join WAU alongside star driver Chaz Mostert in the upcoming season. Although the team’s boss, Bruce Stewart, was noncommittal when questioned about the 2024 line-up before The Bend SuperSprint, he did express a desire for clarity by the time the Sandown 500 arrives next month.

In other news concerning driver shifts for 2024, Richie Stanaway is making a surprising return to full-time Supercars, joining Grove Racing as a replacement for David Reynolds. Reynolds, on the other hand, is reportedly moving to Team 18 with Mark Winterbottom next year. Additionally, Triple Eight has signed Will Brown to replace Shane van Gisbergen, and Jack Le Brocq is set to replace Brown at Erebus.
