As V8 Supercars team TEKNO reveal their revolutionary new look for the 2015 season, XFORCE Performance Exhaust is proud to announce our support for the No. 97 Darrell Lea VF Commodore of Shane van Gisbergen for the 2015 V8 Supercar Championship Series.
“XFORCE is becoming one of Australia’s most recognised brands in the industry, built on a strong philosophy of providing the pinnacle of quality in the performance exhaust market. Our involvement with motorsport has grown dramatically in the last decade in all facets of motorsport from grassroots racing such as drag racing and drifting to the V8 UTE series and now the V8 Supercars. We have distribution networks throughout the country and see our partnership with TEKNO a great asset in the growth of the company and making our brand accessible to a wider audience. The combination of the race team exposure and the fact we can combine the research and development resources of both companies puts us in a very strong position to achieve Xforce’s mission of providing excellent value for money, a premium product backed by strong after sales support. This along with innovation, service and what we call “a great Xforce experience” is what we are about and are the cornerstones of our business. We are very excited to be involved with Tekno and would like to wish the team all the very best for the season ahead.” Said Tom Wallace, Sales and Marketing Manager at XFORCE
The Queensland-based Holden team heads into the new season with plenty of momentum, having achieved its best results in the sport in 2014.
New Zealander van Gisbergen finished the season championship runner-up, with eight race wins – and was the only driver to get close to six-time champion Jamie Whincup’s 14 victories.
Naturally, the aim for 2015 is to build on the strength and consistency required for a V8 Supercars title campaign – something that team owner Jonathon Webb says the team is well set-up for.
“We can’t wait to get started with season 2015, which blasts off at next month’s Clipsal 500 in Adelaide,” Webb said.
“Over the break, we’ve been working hard to make improvements right across the board – and running just one Commodore allows us to focus our energies on getting that right for the new season.
TEKNO’s Shane Van Gisbergen will be keen to build on the momentum that saw him finish last season as championship runner-up, starting with next week’s V8 SuperTest in Sydney.
“We had a really strong end to the season last year, so we want to build on that and start the season in Adelaide on the front foot.
“The first few rounds are important as they set up your year, and give you the momentum and the points on the board to be able to fight for the title.” Van Gisbergen said.
