- Red Bull Holden Racing Team
Roland Dane’s Triple Eight Race Engineering has set the standard in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship for more than a decade, taking Jamie Whincup to his seventh title in 2017.
With Fords and then Holdens, following a 2010 switch, the outfit has tasted success, Whincup’s haul of titles accompanied by one for Shane van Gisbergen in ’16, eight of the last 10 teams’ titles, six Bathurst wins and three PIRTEK Enduro Cups.
Whincup and van Gisbergen race as the factory Red Bull Holden Racing Team pair, while a third Commodore for Craig Lowndes competes at Autobarn Lowndes Racing.
Having faced a stern challenge from DJR Team Penske in 2017, which ended Triple Eight’s run of teams’ championship victories and narrowly lost the drivers’ fight, the outfit enters the new season with the ZB Commodore it has developed.
It is also leading the way with Holden’s V6, twin-turbo engine expected to make its race debut as a wildcard this year before a full introduction in 2019.
