Lowndes revealed the 2019 Red Bull Holden Racing Team's livery in Dalby QLD
The Red Bull Holden Racing Team launched the brand new 2019 Commodore supercar livery on Sunday, 6th January 2019 in Dalby, Queensland.
Craig Lowndes unveiled the new livery to thousands of the core motorsports community in Queensland on the runway at Dalby Aerodrome. Fans enjoyed a spectacular show run and impressive display from the three-time Supercars Champion. Fans came from as far as Darwin to witness the big reveal and enjoy a day out in Dalby.
"It's really great to reveal the 2019 Red Bull Holden Racing Team car livery in Dalby. This year we've done something different by launching in Dalby and getting close to the community here. The people and the farmers came out and they all had a smile on their faces," Lowndes said.
Along with the new livery reveal, it was officially announced that Lowndes will be Jamie Whincup's co-driver in this year's three endurance events. Both Whincup and Lowndes are more than excited about the pairing and what is to come for 2019.
Lowndes expressed his excitement for the pairing and the new challenge this year: "Both Jamie and I have a great history! With a lot of people wanting the pairing to happen, I'm going to really enjoy driving with Jamie. As the year goes on I can't wait to see how Jamie and Shane perform this year with the new car and growing on the speed we had from last year. Getting back into the car for the enduros will be really special."
Whincup said, "In some way it feels like we're getting the band back together! Lowndesy and I obviously had a good run at the enduros a few years ago and he's coming off the back of a win in the Enduro Cup last year, so we'll be working hard to give ourselves and the team the best shot later this year. Our previous results are no indication of how we'll go this time around, but if there's anyone you'd want on your side at Bathurst, it's Craig Lowndes."
The Red Bull Holden Racing Team went back to the team's roots thanks to the support of the Western Downs Council. Western Downs Regional Council Mayor Paul McVeigh said hosting the launch was a great thrill for the people of the region.
"Motorsports is hugely popular on the Western Downs and people were so excited to see Craig Lowndes behind the wheel of the new Red Bull Holden Racing Team car.
"We were really excited that Red Bull chose Dalby to launch their new supercar. This is exactly the kind of event that makes the Western Downs such a great place to work and live."
The 2019 Red Bull Holden Racing Team livery is a new look and the team can't wait to hit the track at the Adelaide 500.
