Wincup predicting wild supercar title battle – Motorsports

Talk during the launch of Triple Eight’s new liveryThe seven-time Series Champion has moved to ease the fear that this year could be the T8 Cakewalk, now that Penske has withdrawn and Scott McLaughlin has moved to IndyCar.

He said he was hoping for the opposite, Wincup predicts that the Powerhouse team will fill their hands with what could be a huge battle for the title.

“There are a lot of new things and a lot of fresh things [this season], There is still one thing in common. It’s about going out and defeating your peers to the finish line, “says Wincup.

“We expect this year’s tournament to be tough again. It will be a big fight in this year’s championship. Ten or fifteen men could win this year.

“Fingers are fighting across both Triple Eight Race Engineering cars.”

Whincup and T8 teammate Shane van Gisbergen head for the 2021 season as a co-favorite of the title. This is the competition most likely to come from things like Will Davison and Anton De Pasquale in the new Dick Johnson Racing pair, Cam Waters in Tickford, and Walkinshaw Andretti United. Chasmo start.

There are other proven race winners that could be a factor, such as Brad Jones Racing’s Nick Perca, Tickford’s James Courtney, Kelly Grove Racing’s David Reynolds, and Team 18 Pairs of Mark Winterbottom and Scott Pye.

I don’t think the Wincup will be easy, but I’m sure the T8 has done everything it can for the new season.

“The story is cheap. I’m not going to come out and say more than anyone else what we’ve done and what we’ve done,” he said.

“All I say is that I’m ready. I’m ready for Round 1.”

Wincup also hinted at the truck’s debut T8 Gen3 specification Camaro It may not be far.

“In the background are the Gen3 and the Camaro, which are very attractive,” he said. “Soon we need to get the Camaro on track, test, develop and prepare for 2022. This year will be an exciting year.”

Triple Eight will run the current Holden package for the first time this year in pre-season testing of the Queensland Raceway on February 12.

It’s not yet clear if Vangisbergen can participate, but Kiwi is still Stuck in home after an unexpected change in the Australian-New Zealand border agreement earlier this week..

Even if the test fails and needs to be quarantined, Vangisbergen should be able to return in time for the opening round at Mount Panorama on February 26-28.
