TICKFORD RACING – MORE THAN A 1000 TRAILER
12 March, 2021
In a year where everything is different, the desire to win at Bathurst remains unchanged, and on March 20 Supercars fans will receive a never-before-seen look at one of the most memorable editions of The Great Race.
Following Tickford Racing through an unprecedented 2020 Supercars season, “More Than A 1000,” features the two-time Bathurst winning squad as it navigates the most challenging of seasons amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Working from the conference centre at Sea World Resort in southeast Queensland while away from its Melbourne home, Tickford Racing prepares four Ford Mustang Supercars for Australia’s Great Race. Despite the disadvantages of being on the road for over three months ahead of the ‘1000,’ the Ford powerhouse muscled its way into the spotlight throughout the Australian motorsport classic.

Tickford Racing CEO and Team Principal Tim Edwards commented on the documentary while also reflecting on the team’s 2020 season, which will be remembered in large part for the 106 consecutive days race crews from Victoria spent away from home as a result of the outbreak of COVID-19 in parts of the state.
“The 2020 season was exhausting for everyone in and associated with the team, but the resilience shown by the team through that period was incredible,” Edwards said. “Not just by those on the road, but the guys and girls back in Victoria, the partners and families of the team, our sponsors and members, everyone stepped up to keep the wheels turning, sometimes literally. But even with all the challenges we faced and hurdles we had to clear, we turned up every weekend with fast cars and gunning for wins, it was really a special time. And to go to Bathurst with most of us having spent the last three months living out of hotels, and truly believing we can win the thing, it’s a great testament to the team we have here, and the spirit of all the teams who kept the show on the road.”
“Bathurst is always unforgettable, but 2020 was certainly its own beast,” Edwards recalled. “To capture all that in the way we have is incredibly special, and is something we’ll all look back on and remember just how crazy it was and just how well everyone worked. The fans will love it and I think it will remind our team what a job they did to do what we did that year. Most importantly it will get us pumped for this year’s ‘1000,’ and having another crack at that top step.”
An Infocus Media and Tickford Racing production in association with Supercars Media, “More Than A 1000” takes an unparalleled look behind the scenes of one of Australia’s winningest race teams at the country’s most prestigious and demanding motor race.
“More Than A 1000” will premiere on Foxtel at 6:00 p.m. AEDT on Saturday March, 20, following live coverage of the Sandown SuperSprint.
