Award winning VE Commodore ready for the 2007 V8 Supercar

The newest arrival into the V8 Supercar Championship Series, the Holden VE Commodore, will be even more eagerly anticipated following its winning of the prestigious Wheels Car of the Year overnight.

The VE and the new Ford BF Falcon will debut on the grid in front of more than 250,000 fans at round one of the 2007 V8 Supercar Championship Series, the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide, in just over a month's time.

V8 Supercars Australia Chairman Tony Cochrane said the fact that the VE had won the Wheels award for the best car in the country would only add to a highly anticipated Championship in 2007.

"What an outstanding achievement this is for Holden Australia," Mr Cochrane said.

"The VE Commodore is absolutely World class and shows that Australian manufacturing is best practice not just in Australia but internationally.

"Congratulations to Denny Mooney and all of the team at Holden on this wonderful award."

Both models -- the new look VE Commodore and the new look BF Falcon -- were approved to contest the V8 Supercar Championship Series late last year after several months of evaluation and rigorous testing to ensure they comply with the technical regulations of the sport.

The V8 Supercar Championship Series teams have been feverishly building new cars in preparation for the Adelaide event that begins the 14-round 2007 season from March 1-4.

The VE Commodore is an all-new car while the BF Falcon has had a major facelift from the current model. The VZ Commodore remains eligible for competition in the Championship while the current BA model will only be permitted in the secondary Fujitsu V8 Supercar Series.
