Whincup to shake down new Commodore at QR
Wednesday 10th February, 2021 - 9:25am
Jamie Whincup will shake down his brand new Holden ZB Commodore at Queensland Raceway today in preparation for his final full Supercars season.
Red Bull Ampol Racing has built one new car for the forthcoming Repco Supercars Championship, a year out from the introduction of Gen3.
Under the rules and regulations, teams are allowed to complete a 60km shakedown for newly built chassis.
Dick Johnson Racing will also shake down its new Ford Mustang pair, driven by Will Davison and Anton De Pasquale.
Matt Stone Racing is also present at Queensland Raceway today with Jake Kostecki and Zane Goddard conducting a rookie test, with Super2 and Super3 drivers Aaron Seton and Jason Gomersall also cutting laps.
Triple Eight Race Engineering has also brought out its Dunlop Super2 Series young guns Broc Feeney and Angelo Mouzouris to QR to continue pre-season testing.
Whincup announced last week he will retire from full-time driving at the end of this season to take over from Roland Dane as Triple Eight managing director and team principal.
