Triple Eight Race Engineering is excited to announce that co-naming rights partner, Ampol, has committed to the Supercars Championship by securing a further two years with the team. Alongside Red Bull as co-naming rights partner of Red Bull Ampol Racing, the renewal will see the partnership celebrate 18 years in 2023.
Ampol has been Triple Eight’s longest-standing team partner, first signing with the team in 2005 and have since played a significant supporting role in every single championship success. They were naming-rights partners of the team’s third Supercar in 2016 and 2017 piloted by Craig Lowndes, before returning as naming-right’s partners at the beginning of 2021.
“Our relationship with Ampol began back in 2005, and they’ve been exceptional partners of our team, sharing nine Bathurst 1000 wins, nine Drivers’ Championships and ten Teams’ Championships over this period,” said Triple Eight Race Engineering’s Managing Director, Jamie Whincup.
“We share a mutual passion for motorsport and fuelling the next generation, but the team have particularly enjoyed the last two years representing their relaunch of the iconic Ampol brand.
“The entire Triple Eight team are pumped to have Ampol continue their co-naming rights partnership, alongside Red Bull, and we look forward to sharing an exciting future for both the team, and the sport overall.”
Brent Merrick, Ampol Australia, Executive General Manager of International and New Business said:
“We are pleased to extend Ampol’s co-naming rights partnership with Triple Eight as the official fuel partner of Red Bull Ampol Racing and are excited by the team’s incredible on-track successes of late.
“Peak performance underpins what Amplify Premium Fuels stands for. Our ongoing dedication to developing and maintaining the best fuel technologies and outcomes for our valued customers across Australia is testament to this.
“Motorsport has been an enduring part of Ampol’s fabric for over six decades. Our partnership with Red Bull Ampol Racing is a living example of the esteem Ampol holds Australian sport in and the important role it plays in engaging the wider community.”
