    Cool V8 giants Triple 8 confirm Red Bull deal

    Motor:V8 giants Triple 8 confirm Red Bull deal

    V8 Supercars giants Triple Eight Race Engineering have announced
    that Red Bull will replace Vodafone as the team's naming rights
    sponsor in a multi-year deal.

    Triple Eight's current deal with Vodafone finishes at the end of
    the year after a six-year association which included Bathurst 1000
    wins in 2007, 2008 and 2010 as well as JAMIE WHINCUP'S 2008, 2009
    and 2011 championships.

    Triple Eight managing director ROLAND DANE said he was delighted
    to have secured a new naming rights sponsor for 2013 and beyond.

    Well Vodafone are pulling sponsorships everywhere, would be nice to see them put it into reception Click here to enlarge

    Red Bull on board may pave the way for Casey Stoner to come into the sport, since they have a good partnership with Ducati already.

    Good to see they got a big name on board though Click here to enlarge

    I think he'd find a way to ditch that deal, as I think Red Bull would probably stump up the money to keep him on board. As in all forms of sport that Red Bull sponsor, they are probably more determined to keep their teams winning than most other companies.

    Vodafone probably pulled the pin when they figured out they couldn't outsource anything more to India, including sport sponsorships.

    The Monster deal was a year by year thing so will likely just drop off, unless they do something tricky (see below).

    Auto Action has the new cars on the cover, I picked one up at Goulburn on the weekend. It looked like Red Bull Mobile more than drinks, so that might not effect the Monster sponsorship.

    Either way it's great to see them in there!!

    Big news!

    I thought the Monster thing was Triple 8 based and not Whincup specific? If so they'd just give Monster the boot.
    Upcoming season will be very interesting, COTF, Texas and back to Pukekohe.

    Yeah, and whether the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide is on in 2013 is up in the air at the moment. Our government want to bring the event forward to February as it usually lands in the same time as the Fringe Festival. V8SC say that if it is brought forward, then they won't have the cars ready and they'll cancel the event. Politics has no place in the world of motorsport.

    Agreed, it's such a good event. Surely it's too important for the city to compromise.

    Agreed. The Clipsal is, IMO, one of the better races on the V8 calendar. Particularly Turn 8.
