THE Red Bull Commodore that took Jamie Whincup to his record-equalling fifth and record-breaking sixth V8 Supercar Championship is on the market.
The car took Whincup to title victory in both 2013 and 2014 and he continued to drive it into the middle of the 2015 season. He and Paul Dumbrell used it to win the Sandown 500 in both 2013 and 2014 and Whincup took the car to pole position at Bathurst in 2013.
The Triple Eight-built Commodore VF New Generation chassis 888A-037 has also put itself into a special place in the record books with 22 race wins – only Whincup’s ‘Kate’ Commodore VE II (28 wins) and Marcos Ambrose’s Pirtek Stone Brothers Falcon (25 wins) have more in championship history.
This car has been raced in the Dunlop Super2 Series by Jake Kostecki and has just been listed on the V8 Sleuth website in our Classifieds Page Powered By Tickford.
Here’s Whincup grabbing pole in 2013 in this chassis, his first Bathurst pole position and the 50th of his Supercars Championship career.
