Broc Feeney claims his first victory in Holdens last race

Today was a tale of the rookie and the champ, with Redbull Ampol Racing's Broc Feeney claiming his first-ever victory in Holdens Last Race

Today was a tale of the rookie and the champ, with Redbull Ampol Racing’s Broc Feeney claiming his first-ever victory in Holdens Last Race and teammate Shane van Gisbergen being awarded his third Championship.

The 20-year-old, in his rookie year, has had some lofty expectations placed on his shoulders, following in the footsteps of seven-time champion Jamie Whincup who is also his boss at the Banyo outfit.  

But if you had to give a grade to the rookie in his first year, it is an A+, with the Gold Coaster finishing sixth in the championship, securing multiple podiums and his first victory in the last race of the season.

Today’s victory meant a whole lot to the team, with many in tears, including ” retire ”  Team Principle Roland Dane, who commented it was eerily similar to the victory for Jamie Whincup on debut for the team back in 2006.

We are excited to see¬†Broc’s¬†progression in 2023 when the whole field moves to new equipment with the introduction of the Gen 3 car when all drivers are on the same vehicle experience level.
