It has been officially confirmed today that Will Davison will join Ford Performance Racing for season 2011 and beyond.
In a move widely speculated within the industry for several months, the former Holden factory driver has 'jumped the fence' to the Ford factory team, and was today revealed as the driver of the #6 Trading Post' FPR Falcon.
The announcement, made at the Tamworth Country Music Festival, will see Davison line up alongside Orrcon Steel driver Mark Winterbottom in the Ford Performance Racing team.
FPR is the fourth V8 team that Davison has driven for in the championship having started his V8 Supercar career with Team Dynamik, competing in just one race for the team.
He then moved to Dick Johnson Racing from 2006 to 2008, before linking with the Toll Holden Racing in 2009.
"Finally, I can talk about my future," said Davison.
"I am tremendously excited about my move to Ford and FPR they are the coming team' without doubt, I have thought for some months that they are on the verge of great success, and I am delighted that I am going to be a part of that.
"Making such a significant change is a tough call, and I didn't make it lightly, but FPR is very strong technically, they are extremely well resourced both technically and financially, and they very positive' way they go racing, which really appealed to me.
"In the end, I didn't have any doubts that FPR is the right place to be and I've already been made very welcome."
FPR Managing Director Tim Edwards was equally enthusiastic about his new signing.
"Will comes to us with tremendous experience he achieved a great deal on the international scene before coming back to Australia and no-one can question what he achieved at his previous team in 2009," said Edwards.
"Most importantly, he brings an outside' perspective to the team which we will all benefit from; he's the guy we targeted for this role and we're delighted to welcome him on board."
Will Davison's first drive of the #6 Trading Post FPR Falcon will be at the official season-opening V8 Supercar test Day, at Eastern Creek (Sydney) on Saturday 29 January.
