It’s time the engineers and fabricators at Red Bull Racing Australia came clean. For nine months they’ve been working on a secret project at their Brisbane HQ.
Aim: To drift enable a Red Bull Racing Australia Supercar.
Inspiration: The driver’s post race, cool down lap celebrations.
Equipment: Jamie Whincup’s chassis, which won the opening race of the season in Adelaide and race 14 in Townsville, before being replaced by a new car in August.
Procedure: Retain existing running gear but convert steering, front suspension and install Drift spec handbrake. Fabricate new flared guards and fit appropriate wheels and tyres.
