Mobil 1 Boost Mobile Racing will conduct its first in-season test of the year next month.
The Holden squad has not undertaken private running this year with any of its Supercars drivers, either in the form of a full test or a rookie day.
Its non-race meeting mileage is limited to Scott Pye's new chassis shakedown and the full-field Sydney test in February, then an evaluation day for British Touring Car Championship driver Ash Sutton in March.
That is largely due to design, as the squad waits for the development of bigger-picture development items with its international partners.
With those parts on schedule, Pye and James Courtney will test their ZBs at Winton on August 14, ahead of the maiden event at Tailem Bend.
A second test will follow in quick succession, a routine pre-PIRTEK Enduro Cup outing.
"It's just making sure we've got the bits and making sure it's valid," co-team principal Mathew Nilsson told Supercars.com.
"There's no doubt everyone has tested and we've still got things to do on that front.
"It's difficult to do things at a race meeting, but that's our plan, it has been for a while.
"There's bits to be made and set-up stuff that you don't get the opportunity to do properly with a back-to-back at the racetrack, and that kind of thing.
"It'll certainly be busy with those two days, but we're looking forward to it."
