Published

on

HOLDEN has put the brakes on the project to replace its V8 engine in Supercars.

Holden Motorsport, Triple Eight Race Engineering and Supercars put out a joint statement on Friday morning confirming that “it will put a hold on the development of the V6 twin-turbo Supercars engine,” with the priority to instead focus on the current V8-powered ZB Commodore.

The move comes a day after a source at Triple Eight confirmed to FOX SPORTS that the team was targeting the Sydney SuperNight 300 in August as the debut race for the new engine.
