Van Gisbergen shakes down new Tekno Holden
Shane van Gisbergen has completed a trouble free shakedown in Tekno Autosports’ new Holden at Queensland Raceway.
The Kiwi drove the maximum permissible 60kms in the car, which will make its race debut at Hidden Valley in just over a week’s time.
The new Tekno shell had originally been purchased from Triple Eight in mid-2013, sitting idle until this year.
Externally, the car’s Darrell Lea Stix livery now sports signage from K&N Filters, which will also take space on Tim Slade’s Supercheap Holden from Darwin.
Tekno’s Holden is one of two new cars headed to Darwin, with Brad Jones Racing also building up a fresh chassis for Fabian Coulthard.
Today’s shakedown also saw Van Gisbergen spend time behind wheel of the Drift Syndicate HSV that he campaigns in selected Australian Drift Grand Prix events throughout the year.
