Holden Design’s Peter Hughes said the team was looking for fresh identity after 2010’s 20th
“For 2011 we really wanted to move the goalposts, so we've made a big effort to keep the design uncluttered, simple and bold,” Mr Hughes said.“The highlight for us this year is the dynamic new Holden Racing Team logo, which helps give the car and team a fresh identity.“It's a perfect mixture of more traditional and easily identified shapes for the lion, mixed in with modern cues which flow through to the wild new race helmet.”
Holden Racing Team regular Garth Tander will be joined by last year’s championship winner James Courtney, who returns to the team after making the shift from Ford at the end of last season’s championship.
“I am super excited about the opportunity to drive for the Toll Holden Racing Team, especially as defending champion,” Courtney said.“My goal is to be the driver to deliver the team its next title.”
The new-look Toll HRT Commodores will hit the track for the first time at the V8 Supercars test event at Eastern Creek Raceway on Saturday January 29.
The 2011 V8 Supercar championship series kicks off with the Yas 400 at the Yas Marina Circuit on February 11-12.
