Engineer Brendan Hogan has left Campbellfield-based outfit Tickford Racing and has joined Team CoolDrive as its Team Manager.
Hogan, who had been working as Will Davison’s and then James Courtney’s engineer in 2020, parted company with Tickford Racing at the end of November, Team Principal Tim Edwards confirmed
“After Bathurst, we sat down and tidied up a few things,” Edwards told Speedcafe.com.
“He’s been painting and hanging office doors since.
“He’s been flat out because obviously when he arrived there (at Team CoolDrive) three weeks ago it was an empty shell, so he’s been flat out helping the builders construct their workshop.”
Led by Tim Blanchard, the former Supercars full-timer has established a one-car team out of the CoolDrive Auto Parts base in Box Hill, Melbourne.
With Blanchard going solo and taking his Racing Entitlements Contract (REC) with him, Brad Jones Racing has bought the licence formerly owned by Munday to fill the void.
Blanchard has also established a relationship with Tickford Racing with engine leases for the forthcoming season.
The full make-up of Team CoolDrive has yet to be fully revealed yet.
As recently as last week, the team had been advertising for a mechanic.
Blanchard could not be reached for comment.
