Red Bull reveals 2014 V8 Supercar livery
Red Bull Racing Australia is the latest team to show-off its new-look V8 Supercar livery ahead of this weekend’s pre-season test.
The team took the covers off its Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes driven entries in Sydney this evening.
This year marks the second for Triple Eight with primary backing from energy drink giant Red Bull.
The tweaked livery design features increased branding from petrol retailer Caltex, which includes signage on the front-bars, roofs and rear quarter panels.
Pirtek Enduro Cup co-drivers Steven Richards and Paul Dumbrell were also present at the launch.
Richards joins the team this year following a seven-year stint at Ford Performance Racing.
Dumbrell has been contracted for a third season and has added a Dunlop Series campaign with customer outfit Eggleston Motorsport to his schedule.
Last year saw Whincup lead the team to a one-two championship finish for the third time in succession.
The five-time champion is again expecting Lowndes to be his biggest threat.
“Craig’s strong every year and he’s just come off of his big win at the Bathurst 12 Hour,” he said.
“He’s solid as a rock and no doubt he’ll be a big threat this year for the championship.
“I’m hoping and predicting that he’ll be my main man to beat.”
