Jonathon Webb's Tekno Autosport outfit will expand to a two-car Holden operation next year

The Tekno Autosport outfit will expand to a two-car operation in next year’s V8 Supercars championship, with team owner/driver Jonathon Webb confirming he will also switch to Holden power for the upcoming season.

The team is effectively performing a straight swap with Paul Morris Motorsport, acquiring its two Holden Commodores – along with one of its racing licenses – while PMM takes Webb’s Ford Falcon, which he is tipped to merge with Dick Johnson Racing to expand it to a four-car operation next year.

PMM will run Steve Owen in the VIP Petfoods colours once again, having parted company with Russell Ingall, who will replace Fabian Coulthard at Walkinshaw Performance Racing.

Webb meanwhile, will drive his Mother Energy Drink sponsored car alongside a yet-to-be-named team-mate, with the favourite candidate being the newly-crowned Fujitsu Development Series champion Andrew Thompson.
