Supercars Team Triple Eight Signs Autobarn For Two Seasons
Supercars driver Craig Lowndes "will be racing in new colours" in '18, according to Will Dale of FOX SPORTS. The third Triple Eight Holden will feature title sponsorship from car accessories firm Autobarn for the next two Supercars seasons -- the "same length as Lowndes’ extended contract with the team." Currently running under the TeamVortex moniker, Lowndes’ entry "will be run under the Autobarn Lowndes Racing banner." The company has been a personal sponsor of Lowndes for many years, with Autobarn an "associate sponsor" of his No. 888 car as well as the team's other cars in recent seasons. Caltex, the naming rights sponsor of Lowndes' car for the past two seasons, "will remain on the No. 888 Holden" until at least the end of '19. Lowndes' new livery, set to be worn on Holden’s new ZB Commodore Supercar, will be revealed ahead of the '18 season (FOX SPORTS, 10/18).
