The Red Bull Holden Racing Team has pulled the covers off its 2020 challenger, revealing what it’s described as a “modern geometric take” on the team’s colours.
Its 'double-blue' combination smooths the lines of the Commodore’s nose, while the side panels bring jagged geometry to the fore.
The Red Bull Holden Racing Team was second to its chief rivals Shell V-Power Racing again in 2020, and will lead the charge of the rest of the field in trying to knock the current champions off their mantle.
Former series champions Jamie Whincup and Shane Van Gisbergen will again suit up for the Red Bull HRT in 2020.
The veteran Whincup appears likely to decide on his future in the sport in the coming weeks – at 36 he is now an elder statesman in the game with a career spanning almost two decades in the sport.
“It’s great to see the car for the first time today, we were lucky enough to see a sneak peek of the livery late last year but to see it in full on the Commodore, it looks fantastic!” Whincup said.
“We set the bar really high with our Bathurst livery last year so for the teams at Red Bull, Holden and the commercial crew here at Triple Eight to come up with something different, new and fresh they have done a remarkable job and something the fans will be keen to cheer on at the track.”
Red Bull is now the longest-running sponsor for the Triple Eight operation, which stands as the most successful touring car team in the modern Supercars era, and second only – by one drivers’ title – to DJR Team Penske in the history of Australian touring cars, after Scott McLaughlin edged his Ford squad ahead in the championship haul by winning last year’s title.
It sets up a tantalising battle between the two chief protagonists of Australian motorsport, with the two best driver and team combinations in the sport pitched against one another at the season-opening Superloop Adelaide 500 in February.
Tickets are on sale, with four days of Supercars action supported by return of Boost Mobile Stadium Super Trucks, as well as Dunlop Super 2, TA2 Muscle Cars, Touring Car Masters and Porsche Carrera Cup Australia.
The Superloop Adelaide 500 takes place from February 20-23 and is the opening round of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
