Holden Motorsport has confirmed that Triple Eight will campaign a third VF Commodore as a Wildcard entry in October's Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
News that the entry had been locked in for the race was broken by Speedcafe.com just minutes before an official announcement was sent to media.
Although Holden ambassador Casey Stoner and a number of international drivers have been linked to the seat, no details of the program have been confirmed.
”The entry will be supported by Holden and will run independently from Red Bull Racing Australia,” read the Holden Motorsport statement.
“It will be located at the opposite end of the Bathurst pit lane.
“Approval for the wild card entry has been granted by the V8 Supercars Commission and Board.
“Further details will be released in due course.”
The Wildcard will be seventh Triple Eight chassis in the Bathurst fielding, adding to the full-time two-car efforts from Red Bull Racing Australia, Tekno Autosports and Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport.
