Lee Holdsworth is entering his tenth year in the V8 Supercars Championship, and is looking to return to the front of the pack after a few lean years.
His move to Charlie Schwerkolt’s operation has landed him in a plum drive at Walkinshaw Racing, piloting the #18 Commodore VF.
Holdworth's career began when he was seven, racing karts before progressing into a highly successful car racing career.
Holdsworth entered the V8 Supercar Development Series in 2004, catching the eye of V8 Supercars team owner, Garry Rogers, who signed Holdsworth for the endurance races in 2005.
A five-year career with GRM would follow. By mid-2006 Holdsworth had gained his first podium result, and in 2007 he qualified in the top-10 seven times, gaining 11 top-10 finishes. This was topped off with his first V8 Supercars race win at Oran Park.
In 2009 and 2010, Holdsworth was one of the fastest drivers in the field, scoring his second race win in 2010 on the streets of Homebush.
A further year with GRM in 2011 garnered three more podiums, before Lee was signed to join Stone Brother’s Racing for the 2012 season, who morphed into Erebus Motorsport V8 in 2013.
Holdsworth continued his strong career with the new team, achieving the team’s highest championship result, plus highest race finish and qualifying results through a tough development year.
In 2014, he became the first driver to win a V8 Supercars race for Erebus Motorsport and Mercedes-Benz AMG at Winton Raceway.
He joins Walkinshaw Racing for the 2015 season, and beyond.
