Triple Eight Race Engineering
Following success in the British Touring Car Championship, Triple Eight Race Engineering switched its focus to the Australian Supercars Championship with the takeover of Brisbane-based Briggs Motor Sport in September 2003. Triple Eight claimed their first drivers’ and teams’ championship in 2008, rising to eight drivers’ and eight teams’ by the end of 2017. The 2017 season was also significant in that Triple Eight became the sole factory team in the Supercars Championship, with two of Australia’s most iconic brands, Holden and Red Bull, joining forces with Triple Eight to create the Red Bull Holden Racing Team. Along with being the factory team, Triple Eight worked on the design and build of the all-new 2018 Holden Commodore Supercar, supported by Wirth Research on aerodynamic development.
