HP branding for Triple Eight cars at Townsville
All three Triple Eight ZB Commodores will carry branding from HP Australia following confirmation the firm will become the operation’s official technology partner.
The multiple Supercars championship winning squad will kick off its new collaboration with the global IT giant featuring on its Red Bull Holden Racing Team and Autobarn Lowndes Racing entries at this weekend’s Watpac Townsville 400 and the following Coates Hire Ipswich SuperSprint.
HP Australia will become the official supplier of Triple Eight’s PC hardware, monitors and trackside data transfer capabilities across each of their three Supercars Championship entries, as well as revolutionising the team’s 3D printing capabilities.
“This collaboration is a huge boost for Triple Eight and the two teams on track,” said Triple Eight Race Engineering Managing Director Roland Dane.
“As an engineering company, we rely heavily on the information technology systems we utilise to deliver championship results on track.
“We analyse absolutely everything and require the very latest technology to do so. Having HP Australia on board will help us take our capabilities to the next level.
“HP Australia’s 3D printing services will further enhance our current capabilities to print components engineered in-house.
“3D printing is transforming our business and how we perform, so to have HP Australia on board is a huge win. It’s a technology that’s moving forward so rapidly, HP will help us to keep up to date and at the top of our game.”
The Watpac Townsville 400 will begin on Friday.
