Max Vidau will continue in the Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Championship in 2023 with the backing of Tyrepower at TekworkX Motorsport.
Vidau joined the Gold Coast based team as both a driver and full-time mechanic at the start of the 2022 season.
In his first full-time season in the category, Vidau won the opening round of the year at the Australian Grand Prix before going on to claim six podium finishes for the year and 10th in the standings.
Tyrepower began their support of Vidau through his Speedway racing in 2021, before making the jump to support him in Carrera Cup as primary sponsors in 2022.
The strong partnership between Vidau and Australia’s biggest independent tyre shop will again see primary sponsorship on the #72.
Bondi Carpets, Exedy, MDE, MV Automatics, Topline Civil and Ceilings by Design will also support Vidau through 2023.
With his first full-time season under his belt, Vidau is excited to continue building on the strength of both him and the TekworkX Motorsport team.
“We had strong pace at most of the tracks we went to last year, there’s a really good base for us to build from to start 2023,” said Vidau.
“At the high-speed tracks like the Grand Prix, we were probably the fastest cars in the field. It’s the slower tracks where we needed to work on it a little bit, but through the off-season we’ve been putting a lot of effort into it and I’m confident we’ve developed a car that can race for wins at every track on the calendar.
“I’m stoked to have Tyrepower back on board, it was awesome to have them on the doors last season and they’re back as the major sponsors for 2023. A massive thank you to Tyrepower for the support and giving me the opportunity to go racing.
“We started extremely fast out of the gate last season at the Grand Prix, so the aim is to come out and do it again this year and really set the tone for our season,” Vidau concluded.
Max Vidau joins Thomas Maxwell at TekworkX Motorsport to form the team’s Pro class entries in the 2023 Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Championship.
