Triple Eight Race Engineering has commonly set the standard in the Repco Supercars Championship for more than a decade.

The Roland Dane-led outfit has tasted success with Fords and Holdens, following a 2010 switch of brands, since entering the championship in late-'03.

Jamie Whincup's haul of seven drivers' titles since 2008 is accompanied by another for Shane van Gisbergen in '16 and nine of the last 13 teams' crowns.

It boasts an equally enviable endurance record, with eight Bathurst wins and five PIRTEK Enduro Cups.

After Whincup clinched the 2017 title in dramatic circumstances, Triple Eight introduced the ZB Commodore it developed in '18.

It won both races on debut in Adelaide and while van Gisbergen fell just short of a second championship Triple Eight reclaimed the teams' title it relinquished to DJR Team Penske in 2017.

It had to settle for second in both the drivers’ and teams’ championships in 2019, though a dominant end to the season fuelled the fire for a big 2020.

Last year, van Gisbergen broke through for his maiden Bathurst win to clinch third in the standings, one place ahead of Whincup.
