Lowndes and Whincup to partner up for Supercars enduros

Craig Lowndes and Jamie Whincup will join forces for this year's Supercars endurance races, Triple Eight has confirmed.

With Lowndes having been named as one of the team's enduro drivers during his retirement announcement last July, the team has now confirmed that the veteran will team up with Whincup for Bathurst, the Gold Coast, and Sandown.

That means the reprisal of a duo that won three Bathurst 1000 crowns on the trot between 2006 and 2008, as well as the 2007 Sandown 500.

It also means the end of a seven-year partnership between Whincup and Paul Dumbrell, which yielded a Bathurst 1000 win and three Sandown 500 victories.

Triple Eight is yet to confirm who will partner Shane van Gisbergen for the long distance races, with 2018 co-driver Earl Bamber unavailable this year due to his Porsche commitments.

The team is set to pull the covers off its 2019 Red Bull Holden later today.
