Ampol makes its co-naming-rights debut on Triple Eight Racing Engineering’s #88 and #97 Supercars, as it embarks on its first year as co-title sponsor of the squad.
The team’s cars will carry a new look into the 2021 season, which will feature an ‘eye-catching blue’ camouflage design, as well as the addition of the Ampol and Amplify Premium Fuel logos.
Alongside it’s co-title partner Red Bull, the team will continue to enjoy support from team partners; ACDelco, Ampol Amplify Premium Fuels, HP, Spirit Super, National Storage and TW Steel, with the introduction of Daimler Trucks, Harvey Norman, Supercheap Auto and ToolPro to the team for the 2021 season.
“It’s great to have Ampol deepen their commitment to the team to become co-naming rights partner for season 2021 and beyond,” says Red Bull Ampol Racing driver and seven-time Supercars Champion, Jamie Whincup.
“They’re an iconic Australian fuel and convenience company that are driven by high-performance, which aligns to our team values. We’re proud to partner with them as they revitalise the Ampol brand.
“I think the car looks fantastic too. It’s pretty out there and there’s quite a bit going on, but we’re not trying to be the quiet achievers and I think the car suits our style.”
2016 Supercars Champion and 2020 Bathurst 1000 winner, Shane van Gisbergen says, “We obviously finished the 2020 season on a high with a Bathurst 1000 win, so I’m looking forward to the 2021 season kicking off and having Ampol along for the ride.”
Ampol’s Executive General Manager – Retail, Brand and Culture, Joanne Taylor says, “We look forward to further building our partnership with the team and see Jamie and Shane take to the track under the new Red Bull Ampol Racing banner in 2021.”
The new Red Bull Ampol Racing livery will make its racing debut next month as Supercars descend on Mount Panorama for the opening race of the 2021 Supercars Championship, 26-28 February.
