Red Bull Ampol Racing

One of the biggest question marks looming over the Supercars paddock this year is who will occupy the vacant seat left by Jamie Whincup’s pending retirement.

Luckily, the Red Bull Ampol Racing team cleared up the uncertainty on April 1, announcing Roland Dane will join the championship fight alongside Shane van Gisbergen in 2022.

Tickford Racing

James Courtney has revealed Tickford Racing’s Gen3 Supercar will be complete with solar panels on the roof and a six-cylinder engine.

Promising to be more powerful than a V8 but up to 25 per cent less work for the engineers, Tickford seems very excited about its innovation.

Erebus Motorsport

Watch out Uber Elevate: Erebus Air is coming to a Supercars event near you.

The affordable airline service, using Erebus rookie recruit Will Brown’s plane, promises to take fans to new heights both to and from the track.
