Seven-time Supercars champion and team principal of Triple Eight Race Engineering Jamie Whincup will once again team up with Broc Feeney in the #88 Chevrolet Camaro for the 2023 Supercars endurance events.

In their debut year as a pairing at the 2022 Repco Bathurst 1000, Feeney and Whincup recovered to finish the race in fifth place after a lap one incident.

Whincup has a record 124 wins, 92 pole positions and 237 podiums from his 555 race starts. He won the Supercars championship in 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2017, before retiring from full-time driving at the end of 2021.

The 2023 Supercars enduro season comprises two events: Sandown 500 on 15-17 September and Bathurst 1000 on 5-8 October.

“I’m stoked the team has decided that I am the best person to co-drive the #88 car alongside Broc for this year’s endurance races,” said Whincup.

“There’s no doubt that Broc is becoming a more confident and competitive driver in the series – you just have to look at his results after the first three rounds to prove that, and I couldn’t ask for a more compatible co-driver. He has good morals and a good attitude who knows the definition of hard work, and we’ve enjoyed watching him grow as a driver with the support of a formidable team around him.

“I’m thrilled that Sandown has returned to the enduro calendar this year, allowing us co-drivers to have more time in these Gen3 cars. Having a longer enduro campaign will allow Broc and I, along with Shane (van Gisbergen) and Richie (Stanaway) to work closely together to ensure we’re competitive at both events.”
