The act of traversing every corner of Australia (as well as visiting their goofy cousins, New Zealand) with a plethora of parts and technology, and a couple of Holden Commodore VF Supercars, is a complicated act indeed.
Unsurprisingly, it all anchors back to what is a pretty remarkable transporter (this one built by Queensland's Graham Lusty Trailers). Normally, these things are off limits — seen only by the race drivers, team members, and officials that are privileged enough to be part of a Supercars team. But luckily, the Red Bull Holden Racing Team have made a bit of an exception via their latest video. It showcases the ins and outs, rhyme and reason, of their complex and colourful Red Bull-branded transporter.
“A race team lives and breathes in a transporter. Everything has to go to the track,” says Team Manager Mark Dutton.
“It is critical that everything arrives in the condition it needs to be in, everything is bespoke. The transporter is also the race team’s home away from home and, even thought we don’t sleep in them, we live our lives in those trucks every race weekend.”
“One of the most important things for us was utilising all the space we had,” adds team boss Roland Dane.
“Like all trailers in the series, there’s plenty of space in the roof. We needed a raisable roof, so we could create a two-story structure at a race meeting. [...] We have hopefully achieved an objective I had all along, which was to make a trailer that has enabled us to set up at a race track faster and pack up at a race track faster.”
