The Toll Holden Racing Team is currently without a team manager after the sudden departure of Rob Crawford.

A team spokesman confirmed to today that Crawford is no longer with the team, and that a replacement will be sorted within the next seven days.

The news follows an official announcement from the factory Holden squad last Friday that its managing director Craig Wilson has resigned due to family reasons.

Crawford has a long history in the Walkinshaw Racing empire, having worked for the Arrows Formula One team for six seasons before returning to Australia in the late 1990s.

Crawford has since spent time in the team manager’s role at the Holden Young Lions, K-Mart Racing, the HSV Dealer Team and the Holden Racing Team – leading his teams to three Bathurst 1000 (2003, 2004 and 2009) and two V8 Supercars Championship (2006 and 2007) victories.
