The Benalla-based steerer will continue with Tickford Racing in this year's Repco Supercars Championship enduros, as co-driver in an as yet unspecified entry, although it is notable that he has driven James Courtney's #5 Mustang in testing.
However, Best will line up in Michael Anderson's team in Super2 this year, piloting a former Fabian Coulthard DJR Team Penske Gen2 Mustang.
Fittingly, however, that look is evocative of the Shell V-Power livery which DJRTP05 originally raced in, with the branding of sponsors including Best Leisure Industries integrated into the design.
Furthermore, with Best's preferred #78 being used by Aaron Love at the Blanchard Racing Team, he will compete with the #17 plate which is synonymous with Dick Johnson himself.
The Anderson Super2 effort will be engineered by former Tickford Racing figure Brendan Hogan, who, coincidentally, was Team Manager at BRT until recently.
Practice 1 at the Newcastle East Street Circuit starts at 10:10 local time/AEDT.
