Declan Fraser joins Tickford Racing in the Tradie Mustang for the 2023 season, his first full-time effort in the Supercars Championship. Fraser comes to Tickford on the back of a 2022 season in which he led a steady campaign to win the Dunlop Super2 Series title, in addition to placing eighth in his Bathurst 1000 debut alongside Craig Lowndes. Born in Castlemaine and raised in Mackay, 22-year old Fraser first stepped into cars in the 2017 Toyota 86 Series and made his Super3 debut in 2020 before progressing to Super2 in 2021, ahead of his championship-winning season in 2022. He is one of three past Super2 champions in the Tickford stable, joining Cam Waters (2015) and Thomas Randle (2020).
