Holden will continue to race the ZB Commodore in Supercars through to at least the end of 2021 despite the brand announcing it will drop the iconic nameplate from its showroom line-up.
Commodores will continue to be sold until Holden’s existing stocks are depleted.
Holden has however affirmed that despite the news the ZB Commodore Supercar will continue to be raced in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship through to the end of 2021.
Part of that arrangement locked in the ZB Commodore for the next two seasons before reassessing its options for 2022, when the sport will introduce its new Gen3 regulations.
“Holden recently re-committed to racing in Supercars through until the end of 2021, and that will happen with the currently homologated ZB Commodore race car,” said Daniel Cotterill – General Manager – Communications GM Holden.
“Racing is a strong part of Holden’s brand identity and we will assess our options as Supercars continues to evolve its rules for the next generation of cars currently due to be introduced in 2022.”
Triple Eight Race Engineering operates two factory backed Commodores in the series in addition to a further 13 entries run by Erebus Motorsport, Walkinshaw Andretti United, Brad Jones Racing, Team 18, Matt Stone Racing and Tekno Autosports.
