CRAIG LANDS NEW DEAL WITH TRIPLE EIGHT
Five-time Bathurst 1000 winner and driver of the No.888 Holden Commodore, Craig Lowndes, has agreed a new two-year contract with Triple Eight Race Engineering, continuing a highly successful relationship that has seen him finish second in the championship no less than five times over 10 years (’05, ’06, ’11, ’12, ’13).
Joining the Red Bull Racing Australia line-up in 2016 alongside Craig and six-time series champion Jamie Whincup will be last year’s championship runner-up, Shane Van Gisbergen.
“Given the growing trend of larger teams and the intense competition that this brings, we felt that this is the ideal time to add another entry to our championship campaign to enhance the competitive depth of the team” said Triple Eight Managing Director Roland Dane.
“With Jamie, Craig and now Shane at the wheels of the Triple Eight Holdens, we will be fielding the strongest line-up in one of the world’s most closely fought categories, but for now we are focussing on the 2015 championship.”
