AutoAction Australia’s #1 Motor Racing read since 1971 Motorsport news since 1971


Craig Lowndes has revealed the new look of his Team Vortex Holden Commodore as he looks to improve on his two wins and fourth placing in last year’s championship.
“Last year was all about getting the formula right,” said Lowndes.
This year we can apply all that we learned last year and focus on getting consistent results. I have got a very strong team behind me and I’m really excited to continue developing that relationship with Irish (John McGregor, Race Engineer). He obviously engineered me for the last few races in 2016 and did a fantastic job, so I’ve no doubt that we’ll only get better together with time.”

Lowndes will receive a new Triple Eight-built Commodore, which is expected to be completed by mid-February, ahead of the season-opening Clipsal 500.
“The guys and girls have been working hard as always,” Lowndes said.

“In true Triple Eight fashion we’ve decided to introduce three brand new chassis in the holiday ‘downtime’. There is never a quiet moment; we are always onto the next project!”
