Pretty sensible move from Holden all in all.

Does this mean the "Red Bull Holden Racing Team" will be able to claim they've won 11 of the last 15 Bathurst's now ?

Makes sense. There'll still be the next 'Commodore' to hot up even if it's not V8 powered.

I'm disappointed in this news.
Although struggling a little of late HRT have been one of the stronger teams for ages.

This just weakens the field a little more IMHO.

You can really only support a badge, a driver, or a team. Not all three at once.

Will they be "Red Bull, Holden Racing Team" or "Red Bull Holden, Racing Team" ?

I realise there won't be a comma. I only used it to highlight the different emphasis.

The question remains....

The real question is how they will fit a bull and a lion on the side of the Commodore....

Mr Dane and Mr Jamieson have sold off every square inch of those cars, its not like there is loads of room for new, extra branding...

Although it might get the Holden branding onto their windscreens..
