When the Red Bull Holden Racing Team Commodores roll out at Bathurst this weekend, for the final round of the 2020 Supercars Championship, it will be a very special occasion.
Over 50 years of Holden factory support will come to an end, when Jamie Whincup, Craig Lowndes, Shane van Gisbergen and Garth Tander represent the icon brand one last time as full-time Holden factory race drivers.
As a tribute to the millions of Holden fans who’ll be watching the great race on television this year, Holden and Triple Eight Race Engineering today unveiled a unique livery update for the #888 and #97 ZB Commodore Supercars.
The striking THANKS HOLDEN FANS graphic is a respectful acknowledgement to the many wonderful supporters, drivers, engineers, dealers, commercial partners, marketers and everyone who helped make so many great memories.
The battle between the official works teams of Holden and Ford has lasted for over half a century, and divided race fans into two intense and loyal camps – Red versus Blue. Triple Eight will carry the Holden flag one last time this Sunday.
Standing at the famous Skyline at Bathurst, Craig Lowndes summed up the occasion “I’ll certainly miss the usual crowds at Bathurst this year. This tribute livery on the last factory race team Commodores is a tremendous message of thanks to the Holden fans. Jamie and I would be extremely proud to bring home a final victory for Holden.”
