RED BULL RACING AUSTRALIA (HOLDEN)
Driver Pairings: #1 Jamie Whincup/Paul Dumbrell – #888 Craig Lowndes/Steven Richards
The dominant team of the last few years, Red Bull Racing are yet again favourites to win the great race and will be as hungry as ever after coming with inches of winning it in 2013.
The all-conquering Jamie Whincup will again pair with Paul Dumbrell and they come off the back of a win at the Sandown 500.
However, the second car of Craig Lowndes and Steven Richards is the most experienced in the field, with an incredible eight wins at Mount Panorama between them.
Red Bull are without doubt the favourites, but the unpredictability of the 1000km event means they cannot be considered shoo-ins.
