Holden signs three-year deal to remain in Supercars

Anyone thinking the end of the Aussie-built Holden Commodore would see a withdrawal from Supercars was mistaken with Holden today confirming it would compete in the series for at least the next three seasons.

The Supercars website reports that Holden has signed a deal with Triple Eight Race Engineering to form the Red Bull Holden Racing Team from next season.

That deal will see Holden withdraw its long-standing support of Walkinshaw Racing.

And the next-generation fully imported Holden Commodore will take its place on the grid from 2018.

Holden boss Mark Bernhard saying the announcement is exciting.

“Motorsport has played a significant role in Holden’s heritage and we’re proud to be carrying on that tradition with the new Red Bull Holden Racing Team, while reshaping our brand and presence in the market and in motorsport.

“We’re taking our company forward.

“I’d also like to thank and pay homage to Walkinshaw Racing with whom we have shared a proud history over many years.”
