Triple Eight Race Engineering is pleased to announce that leading automotive retailer Supercheap Auto, has signed with the team as a major partner for a multi-year agreement.
Australian owned Supercheap Auto will join the new-look Red Bull Ampol Racing outfit for the 2021 Supercars Championship season, further solidifying their commitment to the sport.
In addition, Trade quality ToolPro sold exclusivity through Supercheap Auto, will be the team’s official tool provider for the duration of the partnership.
The Supercheap Auto and ToolPro brands will feature on the team’s two Holden ZB Commodore Supercars, driven by seven-time Supercars Champion Jamie Whincup and 2020 Bathurst 1000 winner Shane van Gisbergen.
With more than 300 stores across Australia and New Zealand, the partnership will provide Supercheap Auto customers and Triple Eight fans with access to official Red Bull Ampol Racing team merchandise, giving fans an alternative destination to deck themselves out in the new team uniform and complete the collection with a host of team-branded automotive accessories.

The entire team at Triple Eight welcomes the exciting inclusion of Supercheap Auto, its team members and customers, and is committed to delivering the best possible results, both on and off the track, for the duration of the partnership.
Triple Eight Racing Engineering will officially launch Red Bull Ampol Racing on 29 January, which will include revealing the team’s 2021 livery.
