Triple Eight Race Engineering has locked in its engineering line-up for the 2022 Supercars Championship season.
Race Engineer for Shane van Gisbergen in the #97 Red Bull Ampol Racing Commodore will be Andrew Edwards. The race-winning Supercars veteran will also fill the role of Chief Designer and will move to Brisbane to join Triple Eight early in the New Year.
Consistency will be key for Red Bull Ampol Racing’s 2022 rookie, Broc Feeney, who will continue to be engineered by Martin Short. The pair has performed exceptionally well during this year’s Super2 Series and Short’s CV is strengthened by his additional duties as Race Engineer on Triple Eight’s GT programme since 2019. Working under the guidance of the team’s Technical Director, Jeromy Moore, and Team Manager, Mark Dutton, the duo will have the full support of Triple Eight’s engineering department.
“We’re really happy to be welcoming Andrew to the team,” said Jamie Whincup, current driver of the #88 Red Bull Ampol Racing car and future Triple Eight Managing Director. “He’s a very talented engineer and will bring a heap of experience and new knowledge. Shane (van Gisbergen) is looking forward to working with him and building a solid relationship, which is so important between a driver and engineer.
“We have every confidence in Marty (Martin Short). He and Broc have delivered the goods time and again this year, and he’s adapted so well to everything Triple Eight has thrown at him since he started with us in 2018.”
Triple Eight wishes to thank our current Race Engineers, David Cauchi and Wes McDougall, for their hard work and commitment, and remains fully focused on finishing the year as strongly as possible.
