Sunday 23rd February, 2020 - 6:00am
Triple Eight Race Engineering owner Roland Dane has confirmed he has met with General Motors regarding Holden’s future with the team.
With that came confirmation the iconic Australian brand Holden will leave the marketplace at the end of 2020.
Dane wouldn’t divulge what was said in the meeting, only that he would reveal it when the time was right.
“I have spoken to them,” Dane confirmed to Speedcafe.com.
“Everything between them and me is between them and me until there is something else to say.”
Confirmation that Holden will leave by the end of 2020 has cast concern over Supercars and General Motors’ involvement with the category.
Several opinion leaders have indicated they would like to see the Chevrolet Camaro take the place of the Holden Commodore.
Red Bull Holden Racing Team claimed victory in the opening Supercars race of the 2020 season, the first race since confirmation of Holden’s demise, a win dedicated to Holden by victor Jamie Whincup.
