Triple Eight added
another title with
new recruit Shane
van Gisbergen last
season; its customer
car won the Bathurst 1000; the
Red Bull-backed entries now
carry the Holden Racing Team
name with sole factory status;
and the team is charged with
developing the new-generation
Commodore for 2018 and
beyond. Other teams have
emerged from the pack to chal-

The team entering its third
season with Team Penske as its
owners has recruited renowned
car designer and engineer Ludo
Lacroix and Pirtek Endur-

Alexandre Prémat from Triple
Eight. But it's the arrival of Scott

the state of Supercars.
We profile new Brad Jones
Racing (BJR) teammates Tim

cars took it their bigger rivals.
