THE covers are off the livery that Shane van Gisbergen and Triple Eight Race Engineering will use to defend their Repco Supercars Championship titles in 2022.

The reigning Drivers and Teams Championship victors have revealed a tweaked scheme for the new season, one in which van Gisbergen is joined by rookie Broc Feeney.

The reigning Dunlop Super2 Series champion graduates full-time to the ‘main game’ in place of seven-time Supercars champion Jamie Whincup, who moves into the team principal role at Triple Eight.

BURNING QUESTIONS: How Feeney will fare; will Whincup co-drive?

With their ongoing support from naming-rights partners Red Bull and Ampol, the team will continue to enjoy support from team partners ACDelco, Ampol Amplify, Daimler Trucks, HP, Harvey Norman, National Storage, Supercheap Auto, ToolPro and TW Steel, with the introduction of New Holland and Wurth to the team for the 2022 season.

The launch also confirmed that Feeney will adopt the same #88 used by his predecessor.

“I’m thrilled to finally see Broc’s name alongside #88 on this year’s car, and I’m excited to see him begin his journey with Red Bull Ampol Racing,” Whincup said.

“We’re not here to make up the numbers this year, that’s for sure.

We have two reigning champions in the seats of our cars, and we once again occupy the first two garages of pit lane, so it’s up to us to work hard as a team and ensure our drivers dig deep and achieve the best results possible in 2022.

“I also want to thank our entire partner community for their ongoing support, and especially want to welcome the teams at New Holland and Wurth for entrusting us to represent their brands to the best of our ability.”

The colours will hit the track for the first time in anger at a pre-season test day at Queensland Raceway on February 16, ahead of the opening round of the 2022 Repco Supercars Championship at Sydney Motorsport Park on March 4-6.
