"The entire team at Red Bull have been phenomenal partners of ours for the past 11 years,” Triple Eight Managing Director and Team Principal Jamie Whincup said.


"I’m grateful that they’ve continued to place their faith in Triple Eight to represent their brand at a high level, continuing the successful joint-naming rights partnership alongside Ampol.

"We’ve always been proud to say that we’re one of the leading Red Bull teams in the world, and hopefully our success both on and off the track will continue to go from strength to strength."

“I want to thank Miles [Wilson, Red Bull Managing Director], Blake [Evans, Red Bull Head of Motorsport] and the wider Red Bull family for their continued support. I’m excited to see what this partnership will bring over the next three years.”

The team will be represented by Broc Feeney and Will Brown next season, with reigning champion Shane van Gisbergen recently inking a NASCAR deal for 2024.

The new partnership comes ahead of next weekend’s Repco Bathurst 1000, with van Gisbergen and Feeney second and third in the points respectively.“

The partnership between Red Bull and Triple Eight Race Engineering has delivered four Bathurst 1000 wins, six drivers’ championships, seven teams’ championships, and over 150 race wins over the course of 11 years,” Wilson added.

“This success coupled with the way we work together made it a natural choice to lock in the partnership for another three years. We are looking forward to more successes together both on and off the track.”
