    Team Vortex & Craig Lowndes – Triple 8 Race Engineering


    At Autobarn, Australian Motor Racing is in our DNA. Through our sponsorship of the champion team at Triple 8 Race Engineering, Team Vortex and fan favourite Craig Lowndes, we’re partnering with the stand out V8 Supercars outfit of the last decade.


    Led on the track by the five time Barry Sheene medallist Craig Lowndes in the famous 888 Commodore, the Autobarn Brand is flying on tracks from Bathurst to Barbagallo. Craig’s stats are some of the best the sport has ever seen and speak for themselves;

  • 3 time Supercars champion (1996, 1998, 1999)
  • 6 time Bathurst 1000 winner (1996, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2015)
  • 5 time Barry Sheene medal winner (2005, 2006, 2011, 2013, 2015)
  • Holds the record for most wins in the history of Australian supercars
  • Over 600 race starts
  • Over 100 race wins
  • Medal of the Order of Australia (2012)


    The 2016 season delivered another championship from Triple 8 Race Engineering, winning their 6th consecutive Teams Championship. Team Vortex and Craig Lowndes had yet another strong season, finishing 4th overall in the championship.


    Craig and the team are regular attendees at our store Grand Openings and appear in store at team signing sessions at Autobarn stores around Australia prior to race weekends – keep an eye on our website for details!
