Will Davison believes Tekno Autosports' acquisition of experienced engineer Campbell Little will prove to be a valuable asset for the team.
Little has joined the Queensland outfit having spent last season working for Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport.
His new role will see him engineer Davison in the #19 Tekno Commodore as a direct replacement for Dr Geoff Slater, who has departed the team during the off-season.
The 34-year-old will kick-start his engineering relationship with Little at this weekend's Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.
Little has been drafted in to help Tekno run two McLaren 650S GT3s as the operation looks to defend its Bathurst 12 Hour title.
“Any new relationship is always a process you don't ideally want have to go through as continuity is pretty important”, Davison, who is piloting the #59 Tekno McLaren at the Bathurst 12 Hour, told Speedcafe.com.
“However, a fresh set of eyes and experience can't hurt the team.
“I have known Campbell for years but we have never directly worked together.
“I have always had good chats with him and I think he will be a good asset.
“The cars at Bathurst this weekend are completely different but it is just good to get that simple engineer dialogue going.
“He is pretty keen to settle and find a bit of a home and make a difference. I think we are all looking forward to it.
“There is a big change with the tyre in Supercars this year and he will be looking forward to that challenge.
“The team is excited to have a bit of a fresh clean sheet and maybe a slightly different way of thinking about things.”
Davison and Little will kick-off their Supercars partnership at the official tyre test at Sydney Motorsport Park on February 21.
