Red Bull Ampol Racing has revealed its stunning 2024 Supercars Championship liveries that will feature on the team’s two Gen3 Chevrolet Camaros in front of a crowd of thousands at their ‘Livery Landing’ public season launch held at Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport.
The local crowd were treated to an array of partner activations, a ‘show and shine’ exhibition and an aerobatic display by Red Bull pilot Matt Hall before the team revealed their 2024 challengers in style with a number of burnout and pit stop demonstrations, entertaining the cheering crowd.
The team officially welcomed Toowoomba local Will Brown as a Red Bull Ampol Racing driver for the 2024 season and beyond, alongside Broc Feeney who enters his third year with the team in the main game. Both drivers were accompanied by co-drivers Scott Pye and Jamie Whincup, who were announced to partner with Brown and Feeney respectively for the Supercars Enduro Season.
With their ongoing support from naming-rights partners Red Bull and Ampol, the team will continue to enjoy support from major team partners; ACDelco, Ampol Amplify Premium Fuels, Chevrolet Racing, HP, Harvey Norman, JGI, National Storage, New Holland, Quad Lock, Supercheap Auto, ToolPro and Wurth.
In addition, the team is extremely excited to welcome on board for the 2024 season: Complete Parts & Equipment Solutions.
The team will also enter 2024 with an unchanged race engineering line up, with Andrew Edwards working alongside Brown in the #87 Camaro, and Martin Short continuing as Feeney’s race engineer in the #88 Camaro. Both engineers will continue to work under the guidance of the team’s Technical Director, Jeromy Moore, and Team Manager, Mark Dutton.
Red Bull Ampol Racing’s first pre-season test day is earmarked for February 5 at Queensland Raceway. Round 1 of the 2024 Supercars Championship begins at the Bathurst 500 on 23-25 February.
Will Brown, Driver #87 Chevrolet Camaro, Red Bull Ampol Racing
“The cars look amazing. To be joining the team and having those iconic Red Bull Ampol Racing colours on my car is fantastic.
“To reveal the car for the first time in Toowoomba and to show it off to all the locals is pretty exciting to have it in my hometown. My family have a small used car dealership in town, and we had a lot of people during the week come in asking about the launch and were really excited about it. It’s been the talk of the town and it’s awesome that we could bring this cool event to life.
“The next major event for us is the team’s pre-season test day on Monday which is going to be exciting to get a full day in the car. We’ve done the shakedown which was just a teaser, and now to get the full day is awesome.
“We’re going to run through the normal test plan and get myself more comfortable in the car because it’s brand new to me, so Andrew (Edwards, race engineer) and I will be working closely with each other. It’ll be a big day, but I’m really looking forward to it.”
Broc Feeney, Driver #88 Chevrolet Camaro, Red Bull Ampol Racing
“The cars look clean – simple but very effective. As long as it goes fast I’ll be happy, but it certainly looks the goods.
“It’s great for the team to return to these massive public launches. I feel like we’ve taken it a massive step up this year and put in a lot of effort to make sure it was a great event, and everyone got behind it; team partners, staff, members, fans – they were all super supportive of it.
“We had a really good shakedown during the week and we got to run through a couple of things before our test day on Monday. The cars are a little bit different with a different aero package, but it’s just getting back to work and seeing what’s in our toolbox and what we can improve on from last year. Hopefully we can use Monday’s test day to make some gains before the start of the season.”
Jamie Whincup, Team Principal, Red Bull Ampol Racing
“What an amazing event – Toowoomba has really turned it on for us today!
“It was unreal to shut down Wellcamp Airport for a family fun day of race cars and planes in front of literally thousands of people, a very proud moment for us.
“This season launch is the biggest we’ve ever seen from a Supercars team and I’m so proud of the guys and girls at Triple Eight, alongside our longstanding co-naming rights partners Red Bull and Ampol for the tireless effort they have put in to making this event a great success for the local community.
“Our ‘Livery Landing’ kicks off an exciting season with what I believe is the most exciting young driver line-up the series has seen in Broc and Will, and I can’t wait to get to The Mountain for round one.”
