Triple Eight’s expansion to three cars for 2016 proved successful, with TeamVortex earning two wins in its first season and pilot Craig Lowndes finishing fourth in the drivers’ championship.

Legendary Lowndes – who has six Bathurst 1000 wins to his name, and over 600 Supercars starts – steers the team’s Holden VF Commodore with Triple Eight veteran Andrew Simpson at the helm in the group’s second garage.

Lowndes has been a Caltex ambassador for almost 10 years, so the creation of TeamVortex was a natural step in the partnership as the Supercars icon hunts for his fourth drivers’ title.on.
