“We had no hesitation in becoming a member and have encouraged all of our partners and suppliers to do the same.

“Given the current environment that everyone is facing due to COVID-19, I think should be applauded for creating such a hub that’s not only free, but really links the industry together.

“It’s a no brainer, really.”

Triple Eight is based in the Brisbane suburb of Banyo and currently campaigns two Red Bull Holden ZB Commodores in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship for Jamie Whincup and Shane van Gisbergen.
