Walkinshaw Andretti United (WAU) has today announced a tweak to the structure of its operations in Australia.
Bruce Stewart (shown left above) will continue lead the Team, now as Chief Executive Officer, with Carl Faux moving from Technical Director to Team Principal.
In turn, current Head of Design, Terry Kerr, will step up into the role of Technical Director.
The changes, which won’t alter the-day-to-day operations significantly, have already been implemented.
WAU will take to the track this afternoon, Thursday November 23, for day one of the 2023 VAILO Adelaide 500.
BRUCE STEWART, CEO, WALKINSHAW ANDRETTI UNITED
“While it doesn’t change much day-to-day, this is another step in our growth as a business and team, which has increased rapidly over the last 12-months on track.
“We are now a team that runs five cars across three championships, as well as operating the Walkinshaw Racing side of the business which includes our production and engine areas, so we are always open to further opportunities. Evaluating how we operate most effectively is a common occurrence, and today reflects that.
“I’m delighted for Carl, he’s been fantastic for our team, and this is deserved recognition. As Team Principal, it allows him to be continual involved more behind the scenes of the sport in technical elements.”
CARL FAUX, TEAM PRINCIPAL, WALKINSHAW ANDRETTI UNITED
“It’s an honor to move into the Team Principal role here at Walkinshaw Andretti United, so a big thank you to Ryan, Michael, Zak, Bruce, and the entire team for their support.
“How Bruce, I and the rest of the team work together won’t change dramatically, however it’s an important step in our evolution going forward. We’ve got some exciting things happening, and some key objectives in the immediate future we are all focussed on.
“This weekend though, we are fully focussed on Adelaide, as we look to finish the year on a high in both the Supercars and Super2 Championships.”
