Rising star Tyler Everingham will share the same management as David Reynolds and Andre Heimgartner with confirmation he has been signed to Melbourne based management company Push Talent Management.
Everingham is set to tackle the Dunlop Super2 Series this year with Anderson Motorsport. Although the Series has been on hold due to the COVID-19 crisis, Everingham admits with the season set to return soon that this is a perfect time to be joining forces with Push.
“I’m really excited to be joining the Push team. Obviously, there is a lot more to racing than just jumping in the car and racing around a track,” admits Everingham.
“Having Push Talent on-board will enable me to learn more about sponsorship, public relations, interviews, maintaining relationships with sponsors, as well as keeping up with my physical fitness – which in turn will better develop myself as a driver.
“We understand that especially in this climate, we need all the help we can get.”
The young Super2 driver who resides in Dubbo, NSW has had an impressive start into the motorsport world where he has raced in multiple categories including the Bathurst 12-hour, Australian Production Cars, Formula Vee as well as Formula 4.
The young rookie made his mark in 2018 when he took out the Kumho Tyre Australia V8 Touring Car National Championship. His success caught the eye of many, and it was in 2019 that he took the next step into the Dunlop Super2 Series, where he finished 6th outright. To top off Everingham’s 2019 season, he was also awarded with the Mike Kable Young Gun award.
Managing Director, John Ruggiero admits that he is looking forward to having Tyler sign as the newest recruit to the Push Talent Management squad.
“We’ve had the privilege of working with some amazing talent. The early years for parents and the driver are challenging.” said Ruggiero.
“As a management company it’s essential to guide drivers through the pathways of motorsport. Sponsorship and public relations are critical, but so too is the driver’s capacity to deal with the future of being a professional – things like dealing with sponsors, fitness and conditioning, talking and presenting to camera and working with different brands and people. Aside from that it’s sometimes the parents that value the communication with us, and the administrative assistance we can provide with media, public relations and even contracts and legalities.
“Tyler has had an impressive start and shows so much potential. I’m looking forward to watching him continue to grow and develop himself as a professional athlete.”
Plans were underway to restart the Dunlop Super2 Series, which were set to return alongside the Virgin Australia Supercars 18-19 July at the Truck Assist Winton round; however, since the latest border restrictions Supercars are now assessing its options. More to be revealed over the coming days.
