Walkinshaw Andretti United acknowledges that James Courtney will not return to the Team in 2020.

James and the Team have shared nine seasons together, first joining the Walkinshaw family for the 2011 Supercars season and continuing into the Walkinshaw Andretti United era from 2018 onwards.

In that time, James has achieved seven wins and a further 26 podiums, including a win on debut in Abu Dhabi in 2011, as well as three consecutive Adelaide 500 race wins from 2014-2016.

Our focus on the remainder of the 2019 season remains unchanged, as we look forward to working with James to achieve the best possible results together.

We wish James all the best for his future endeavours, he will always remain a big part of our history and family.

Ryan Walkinshaw

“James has been a great member of this team for nine seasons, and we’ve shared some fantastic times together.

“I’m sure we will all miss his vibrant personality and smile around the garage, but we are looking forward to finishing our time together on a high for the remainder of the 2019 season.

“We all wish him the best for the future, he will always be a friend of the team and my family.

“We look forward to announcing a new WAU driver to our fans very soon.”
