The career of Scott Pye will come full circle in 2024 when he joins Triple Eight Race Engineering as a co-driver.
Pye will be steering one of the Red Bull Ampol Racing Camaros with either Broc Feeney or Will Brown in the enduros in the next two years having signed a multi-year deal.
The 33-year-old has lost a full-time seat for the first time in his career having been replaced by David Reynolds at Team 18, but with his future now secured will be hopeful of chasing maiden Sandown 500 and Bathurst 1000 crowns as a co-driver.

With Shane van Gisbergen likely to be busy racing NASCAR in America and his Bathurst winning partner Richie Stanaway off to Grove Racing, a coveted Triple Eight co-drive was open.
It is likely Pye will race alongside Brown if Triple Eight opt to continue the Feeney and Jamie Whincup partnership, but that is yet to be confirmed.
In that same year he made his Supercars debut for Lucas Dumbrell Racing at Sandown and Bathurst alongside Taz Douglas.
A year later Pye was driving for the same team on the big stage and has remained on the Supercars grid across the next decade driving for Dick Johnson Racing, Walkinshaw Andretti United and Team 18 with the highlight his solitary win in the dark at the 2018 Australian Grand Prix.
ironically when Pye last raced for Triple Eight it was in a Monster backed VE Commodore, while 12 years later he will be raced a Red Bull backed Camaro.

He is delighted to be driving for the most successful team in Bathurst history next year.
“It certainly feels like a bit of a homecoming for me having started my Supercars journey in Super2 with the team.
“I am looking forward to working with the unbelievable group of people in their team and am excited for the opportunity to go to the biggest races of the year with a real chance at success.
Jamie Whincup was on his way to winning his fourth Supercars crown when Pye was around.
Now the team principal, he is looking forward to bringing Pye back to Banyo, but did not confirm whether or not he will race with Broc Feeney or Will Brown.
“Scotty’s experience is evident and his addition to the team as a co-driver for Red Bull Ampol Racing next year will be invaluable. He still has plenty to prove in the category and with the support of an incredible team around him, I think he will flourish.
“There will no doubt be a bit of chatter regarding who Scotty will team up with in 2024, but those are conversations we’ll have once we kick off the 2024 season. Nonetheless, he will compliment either of our full-time drivers massively.”
