Watch the Debut of the Holden V-6 Twin Turbo Engine at Mount Panorama - The Drive

The V8 Supercars Championship is one of the greatest race series in the world. Usually pegged as NASCAR-downunder due to the sedan-like front V-8 engined rear-wheel-drive set ups, but like many race series the cylinder count has dropped due to regulations. The V8 Supercars Championship has recently become the Supercars Championship and the regulations opened up the use of turbocharged four- or six-cylinder engines. While V-8 engines are not explicitly banned, teams will more than likely jump to the turbocharged engines for their benefits.

The Red Bull Holden Racing Team recently headed to Mount Panorama before the 2017 Bathurst 1000 to debut the new Holden V6 Twin-turbo Supercars engine in the Triple Eight Project Sandman. Project Sandman is Red Bull Racing Austrailia's homage to cars of the 1970's. According to Brad Lord of Speedhunters, underneath Project Sandman is chassis...

READY FOR V8 RACING - Shepparton News

Shepparton racer Garry Jacobson is looking to back up his impressive Bathurst 1000 performance in the V8 Supercars at the Gold Coast 600 this weekend.

Jacobson, who is a co-driver to Prodrive’s Jason Bright, endured a break out performance last round and now, in his first time in a Supercar at the Gold Coast, the 25-year-old is hoping to continue his great form.

‘‘The whole Mega crew is just really hungry at the minute, Jason has been doing a brilliant job all year, we want to capitalise on being a strong partnership,’’ Jacobson told Fox Sports earlier this week.

‘‘At Bathurst we were able to make up a lot of positions whichever conditions there was, wet or dry, he was in the top 10 and did a good job — if we get a bit of rain we won’t be rattled.’’

However, during an exclusive co-drivers practice session yesterday afternoon, Jacobson finished second-last, 1.4 seconds behind...

Championship leader Fabian Coulthard slips up, Chaz Mostert charges at Gold Coast 600 - NEWS.com.au

FABIAN Coulthard declared “I’ll cop that on the chin’’ after a horror outing on the Gold Coast saw the DJR/Team Penske star’s championship lead cut to just 37 points.

As Chaz Mostert continued his unlikely title charge by claiming his first Gold Coast win, Coulthard was slapped down by a 15 second penalty in Team Penske’s latest championship blow.

In a wet and wild race won by Mostert in his flying Falcon, Coulthard narrowly held on to his championship lead after the penalty for making contact with Nick Percat saw him finish back in 19th.

“We tried our best,’’ Coulthard said.

“And it was just unfortunate. That incident with Nick, he had a wobble and went wide. I came to check up a little and I copped a shot from behind. I can’t do a thing now that I have the penalty.

“I’ll just have to cop it on the chin.’’

Leading the way in a five way fight for the V8 crown, Coulthard finished...

Supercars Race 22, Gold Coast 600: Scott McLaughlin scores stunning victory for Shell V-Power Racing - Fox Sports

JAMIE Whincup is closing in on his seventh Supercars Championship title following a dramatic day at the Gold Coast 600.

Scott McLaughlin pushed his DJR Team Penske Falcon back to pit lane after upstaging his Red Bull Holden Racing rivals in the fastest ever race on the streets of Surfers Paradise on Sunday.

McLaughlin came from 13th on the grid, the furthest back a Gold Coast 600 winner has ever started, to claim his seventh win of the season.

His incredible victory was orchestrated by the brains trust of Shell V-Power Racing, engineer Ludo Lacroix, who snuck ahead of Whincup and Shane van Gisbergen with a daring race strategy.

McLaughlin cut his fuel consumption so fine he ran dry after a celebration burnout and had to push the car back to victory lane with the help of track officials.

Kiwi V8 driver Scott McLaughlin's Supercar gamble pays off in Gold Coast - TVNZ

Ford driver Scott McLaughlin is certain his pit-stop gamble to win today's Supercars race on the Gold Coast won't be the last bold play before this year's champion is crowned.

The DJR Team Penske driver pitted while behind championship rivals Jamie Whincup and Shane Van Gisbergen just past the midway point of the 300km race.

His gamble paid off two laps later when he came out in front of Whincup and Van Gisbergen, going on to secure a win that had looked extremely unlikely after only qualifying 13th earlier in the day.

Whincup's second-place puts him on 2580 points, 17 points ahead of Ford's Fabian Coulthard in the championship standings with just four races remaining.
