Here’s Shane van Gisbergen’s 2017 Supercars title defender

Shane van Gisbergen’s V8 Supercars title defence has been given a spruce up with a new team name and new matte livery on his car.

Triple Eight Race Engineering will now be known as the Red Bull Holden Racing Team.

The team is a combination of Triple Eight, Holden and Red Bull.

van Gisbergen and six-time Supercars champion Jamie Whincup will drive for the team in 2017.

Red Bull and Holden branding features prominently on newly designed car which has been finished off with a matte finish rather than the typical gloss.

van Gisbergen said the changes were exciting.

“This year’s livery is great, and I think it’s a fresh feel for the team, I can’t wait to see how it looks on track,” he told

The V8 Supercars season gets underway at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide on March 2-5.
