Supercars: Holden star James Courtney hails link with US legend Michael Andretti

Published

on

PEOPLE, money and power — that is what Holden star James Courtney declared his team’s partnership with US racing legend Michael Andretti would bring to Supercars this year.

As the countdown to the V8 season opener in Adelaide on Friday continues, Courtney revealed US-built and designed technology would be strapped into his Australian Commodore for this weekend’s season starter in South Australia.

Reborn as Walkinshaw Andretti United, the merger between Walkinshaw Racing and Andretti Autosport has given the team formerly known as the Holden Racing Team the resources to become a championship contender.

“They are very interested in what is going on and what they can help with,’’ Courtney said.

“There have been some programs going on back in the US with the Andretti side of things that will help set up the car. We also have some nice little updates coming from those guys.’’
