- Red Bull Holden Racing Team
Last year Red Bull Racing Australia broke the record for the most teams’ championships won in Supercars history with a whopping eight first place finishes.
That result – achieved before season’s end at the Gold Coast event in October – meant the Roland Dane-led squad surpassed Dick Johnson Racing in the record books.
It is the seventh consecutive year the team starts the Supercars season as the Teams’ Champions, taking positions one and two in the pit lane as reward.
Jamie Whincup pushed new teammate Shane van Gisbergen to the final round for the championship; but the Kiwi had no problem taking his maiden title after earning the prestigious Pirtek Enduro Cup with Alex Premat in the long-distance races, and the Jason Richards Memorial Trophy in November at home in New Zealand.
After the team’s high profile switch from Ford to Holden in 2010, Triple Eight this year takes on the challenge of developing the Gen2 Holden Commodore behind the scenes, to debut in 2018 when the next era of Supercars kicks off.
