The official, limited-edition publication celebrating the 20th anniversary of Triple Eight Race Engineering and focused on the history of each of its Supercars has today been released onto the market.

The 416-page hardcover book produced by the award-winning V8 Sleuth team is expected to sell out quickly, with more than a third of the limited number of 2500 copies already snapped up via pre order customers and wholesalers.

Available here to order now from the V8 Sleuth SuperStore, the publication features never-before-published photographs and insights from team members and drivers about every Falcon, Commodore and Camaro Supercar produced by the Brisbane-based team.

Officially licenced by Triple Eight Race Engineering, the new book follows in the wheel tracks of smash-hit books that document the history of each of the cars built and raced by the Holden Racing Team, Dick Johnson Racing and Perkins Engineering.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Triple Eight in Supercars since it purchased the Briggs Motorsport team in 2003 and made its debut in that year’s Sandown 500 endurance race.


Since then, it has gone on to win nine Bathurst 1000s, 10 Drivers' Championships and 11 Teams' Championships.

V8 Sleuth's Aaron Noonan, Stefan Bartholomaeus and Will Dale have compiled the publication that includes all of the team’s Bathurst 1000 and championship-winning cars driven by Supercars legends Craig Lowndes, Jamie Whincup, Shane van Gisbergen and so many more.

Insight from key Triple Eight figures including Roland Dane, Mark Dutton, Jeromy Moore, long-time team engineer Ludo Lucroix and many, many more make this a must-have publication.

Long-time Team Principal Dane has penned the foreword for the new book, which also includes a section covering the customer cars built by Triple Eight for the likes of Dick Johnson Racing, TEKNO Autosports, Paul Morris Motorsports, Team 18 and Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport, as well as the team’s foray into GT racing with Mercedes-Benz AMG GT3 race cars.

The book also includes the complete racing results of each of the cars the team has raced from the first Briggs-built Betta Electrical Falcon BAs right through to the end of the last Gen2 era Red Bull Ampol Commodore ZBs, as well as comprehensive team and driver statistics.
