Triple Eight has teased the 2019 look of its Red Bull Holden Racing Team cars ahead of its season launch this weekend.

In a short video posted on the team’s social media accounts, a computer render partially reveals what appears to be a Red Bull-sponsored Supercar.

The front guard in the render is predominantly white, which would represent a switch from the other major colour on last year’s cars, a deep blue.

The video begins with a mobile phone missing a call from ‘J Dub’ for a seventh time before taking a message that seems to be a tacit reference to Craig Lowndes.

Lowndes, who won the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 for a seventh time in his final year as a full-time driver in 2018, will drive a Triple Eight ZB Commodore along a runway during the launch at Dalby Aerodrome in Queensland.

He will continue with Triple Eight as a Pirtek Enduro Cup co-driver, although whether he will partner Jamie Whincup or Shane van Gisbergen is yet to be confirmed.

In any event, all three will combine in a Mercedes-AMG GT3 as part of an alliance between Scott Taylor Motorsport and Triple Eight Race Engineering in the this year’s Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour, which commences in just four weeks’ time.

The Triple Eight Supercars launch begins on Sunday (January 6) at 11:30 with first run of the car at 13:30.
