A new team and a new car have turned their first laps at Queensland Raceway ahead of the 2020 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship season.

Team Sydney made a brief debut at the Ipswich venue in the form of a handover day in which the squad formally took delivery of a car from Triple Eight.

The Jonathon Webb-owned outfit purchased a spare Triple Eight ZB for its expansion to two cars this year, to run alongside the formerly Tekno Autosports-entered chassis.

Now in Coca-Cola colours, the car was used by the Red Bull Holden Racing Team for the VCAT aerodynamic homologation running over the off-season.

Brought to the circuit by Triple Eight, the car completed a handful of laps with star Team Sydney signing James Courtney at the wheel before it was packed into the Tekno transporter.

Shane van Gisbergen completed a shakedown in his new Red Bull Holden Racing Team chassis during the morning, while also helping with the handover process.

Matt Stone Racing is meanwhile running full rookie test days with its Zane Goddard/Jake Kostecki shared #34 entry and the #35 of Garry Jacobson.

Ex-Kelly Racing driver Jacobson has stepped into the Triple Eight-built car Todd Hazelwood campaigned at MSR last year, while the #34 was purchased from Kostecki Brothers Racing.
