It’s official. Almost six months to the day since partnering with Triple Eight Race Engineering, we are thrilled to announce that Red Bull Racing Australia has arrived and is ready to bring a new attitude to pit lane.
It’s an exciting day in our proud motorsports history to realise a long-held dream and pull the covers off what is anticipated to be one of our greatest ever partnerships.
The team worked furiously in the off-season to prepare the all-new Holden VF Commodores that were today unveiled for the first time in Sydney by reigning champion Jamie Whincup and three-time series champion Craig Lowndes.
The cars are also the first built to the 2013 V8 Supercars Car of the Future specifications.
Whincup and Lowndes will put the Red Bull Racing Australia VF Commodores through their paces at the first official test at Sydney Motorsport Park on Saturday.
“There’s been a lot of talk, over the past year especially, about the Car of the Future and what it means for the sport with the addition of the new manufacturers,” Lowndes said. “We’re pumped that we’re finally at the stage where the speculation is all but over and we can get out there and hopefully start winning races.
“Red Bull Racing Australia has already made a statement with the teaser clip we launched last month and I can’t remember being more excited for a season.”
