Ampol Takes Co-Naming Rights Of Triple Eight Supercars Team

A
mpol (formerly Caltex Australia) has announced a new co-naming rights partnership with Triple Eight’s Supercars team, now to be named Red Bull Ampol Racing in 2021.

The team was formerly known as the Red Bull Holden Racing Team for four years, with new liveries to be unveiled early 2021 before the start of the Supercars season.

Triple Eight owner, Roland Dane, said the two-year partnership is an extension of Ampol longstanding partnership with the team.

“The entire team at Triple Eight are thrilled to welcome Ampol as co-title sponsor for the next two years, joining Red Bull to bring Red Bull Ampol Racing to the Supercars grid in 2021,” Dane said.

“Our relationship with Ampol began back in 2005, and they’ve been exceptional partners of our team, sharing eight Bathurst 1000 wins, eight Drivers’ Championship wins, and nine Teams’ Championship wins over this period.

“It’s not Ampol’s first time as a naming rights partner with us, having run TeamVortex in 2016 and 2017, and we’ve greatly enjoyed their passion for motorsport every step of the way.

“The relationship between Ampol and Red Bull is already well established and we’re very fortunate to have been able to play a part in their mutual success over the years, which will hopefully only go from strength to strength with Red Bull Ampol Racing.

“We’re looking forward to showing the fans the brand-new look early next year,” he said.

Ampol executive general manager for retail, brand and culture, Joanne Taylor, said she is excited for Ampol to step into an increased role with Triple Eight next season.

“The partnership with the Triple Eight team captures and celebrates our continued commitment to deliver the world’s best fuels technologies and high performance for all customers,” Taylor said.

“Our long-standing connection to motorsport and its fans is a testament to our brand’s values and overall commitment to Australian sport.

“We want to continue fostering the connection between our brand and fans, and we look forward to continuing our strong relationship with co-title partner Red Bull as we leverage the racing team partnership for joint promotions and consumer activations,” she said.

Red Bull Ampol Racing will be led in 2021 by seven-time Supercars champion, Jamie Whincup, and Bathurst 1000 winner, Shane van Gisbergen.
