Whincup opens up on van Gisbergen’s future

Triple Eight boss tells PARKED UP PLUS podcast how he’ll cope with star’s switch to NASCAR.

03 July 2023

Shane van Gisbergen’s first-up NASCAR win casts further doubt on his long-term Supercars future.

The triple Supercars champion won on his debut in the premier NASCAR Cup Series, charging to victory on the streets of Chicago.

SVG is now the talk of NASCAR, with offers of further guest appearances sure to follow.

After the big win, he admitted his future in Supercars beyond 2024 was limited, expressing a desire to race full-time in the NASCAR Cup Series from 2025.

This week’s PARKED UP PLUS podcast explains why van Gisbergen is, now more than ever, US-bound as his dissatisfaction with Gen3 grows. Listen here:

In a special episode, PARKED UP PLUS features a full-length interview with Supercars GOAT turned Triple Eight co-owner/team boss Jamie Whincup.

In a frank and open exchange, Whincup discusses his new life and comments on the raging Gen3 parity debate, plus SVG’s future in Supercars and much more.

It’s a must-listen interview that reveals Whincup’s unfettered thoughts on a range of issues, including his and superstar Craig Lowndes’ futures as endurance race co-drivers.

The seven-time Supercars champion opens up like never before, also revealing his plan to replace SVG in the increasingly likely event his star driver will defect to NASCAR in 2025.

As well, Whincup forthrightly addresses the Gen3 parity argument, asserting that Ford teams need to empirically prove their case that the Mustang needs a boost against the dominant Chevrolet Camaro.

Each week, PARKED UP PLUS breaks the big news from the big names in Supercars.
