How to look back on the 2023 season for Red Bull Ampol Racing? Eventful and successful would be apt

As 2023 winds down, Supercars.com is looking over all 11 teams and their performances in this year's Repco Supercars Championship, continuing with Red Bull Ampol Racing.

How to look back on the 2023 season for Red Bull Ampol Racing? Eventful and successful would be apt, with the year highlighted by wins in the two longest races of the season.

However, the champions are champions no more — for now, at least — with Triple Eight dethroned by Erebus Motorsport in the first year of the Gen3 rules.

Triple Eight won 10 races — including the Sandown 500 and Bathurst 1000 — but were playing catch-up from the get-go after a double disqualification in Newcastle.

The reigning champs didn’t give up, with Shane van Gisbergen taking the title fight to the final round in Adelaide. If not for a mechanical problem in Bathurst, Broc Feeney would have been there too.

Season results and head-to-heads

Drivers' finish: Shane van Gisbergen 2nd, Broc Feeney 3rd

Teams' finish: 2nd

Best result: 1st (Shane van Gisbergen 5 wins, Broc Feeney 5 wins)


Qualifying head to head: Broc Feeney 15, Shane van Gisbergen 13

Race head to head: Shane van Gisbergen 16, Broc Feeney 12

What’s next in 2024?

Van Gisbergen is off to pastures new in NASCAR, with Will Brown taking his place. How Feeney and Brown work together will be key to Triple Eight’s hopes to winning back the titles it lost to Erebus.

The team also welcomes Scott Pye from Team 18, with Pye signing on as a co-driver. Jamie Whincup is expected to continue for a third season as co-driver, and he is still in top form, winning Sandown and leading Bathurst.

Triple Eight will enter 2024 without their star Kiwi for the first time since 2015, but now have two drivers aged under 25 to lead them into a new era.

Can Feeney and Brown lead Triple Eight back to glory in 2024?
