The new 23Red Racing team has revealed the livery it will run on the Ford Falcon FGX that marquee signing Will Davison will pilot for its maiden Supercars Championship campaign next year.

The single-car outfit, formerly the struggling LD Motorsport squad, has secured a three-year major sponsorship deal with Milwaukee Tools. The deal will see the team known as Milwaukee Racing in deference to its sponsor.

“With our driver locked in and corporate partnership sealed for the next three years, I’m really looking forward to starting the race year in 2018,” said 23Red Racing co-owner Phil Munday, who rescued LD Motorsport with a partial buyout of the team.

In its former LD Motorsport guise, the outfit has been a major behind-the-scenes player in determining the make-up of next year’s grid. It sold one of its two Racing Entitlements Contracts to Prodrive Racing in exchange for an ex-PRA Ford Falcon FGX which it would use in place of the ageing Holdens it has been running to-date.

While Prodrive was able to use its newly-acquired REC to give star driver Richie Stanaway his full-time Supercars debut in 2018, 23Red Racing managed to bag the services of Will Davison.
