It was a strong weekend for Australians on the world stage, with Joey Mawson reaching the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup podium for the first time at Monza as Oscar Piastri firmed to claim the Formula Renault Eurocup title.

Driving for Team Australia, Mawson finished third in a race that saw 2018 Porsche Carrera Cup Australia champion Jaxon Evans start from pole.

Evans led the field into the first chicane but was hit by Ayhancan Guven. The New Zealander dropped to fourth and eventually finished sixth.

Supercars 2020: Holden retirement announcement, what does it mean for Supercars

Published

on

Holden hasn’t ruled out an early end to its Supercars programme in the wake of General Motors axing the iconic brand at the end of 2020.

Monday’s announcement comes as a major shock to Australian motoring – and the Supercars world – in the week leading to the season-opening Superloop Adelaide 500, with the field to congregate at The Bend Motorsport Park in South Australia for an official pre-season test on Tuesday.

Midway through 2019, Holden announced it would continue on with its factory programme, run by Triple Eight Race Engineering, through to the end 2021. Within seven months, Holden had announced it would retire the Commodore nameplate before announcing the brand would be retired altogether.

Holden is about as intrinsically Aussie as any brand has ever been.

Monday’s announcement that General Motors would ‘retire’ the Holden brand name at the end of this year was met with near-universal sadness.

Holden is truly a household name in Australia, right there with Vegemite and Dunlop.

TV host Leigh Sales summed up the nostalgic heartbreak perfectly as she shared an old photo from 1978 as a young girl, standing on her front lawn in front of her family’s Holden.

“So many Australians would have a photo like this – approx 1978, in the background, Dad’s Holden Belmont, that schlepped us around for my entire childhood.”
