Coulthard chassis retired after Winton

Fabian Coulthard will have a brand new Brad Jones Racing Commodore for the next round of the V8 Supercars Championship Series in Darwin, with his current chassis parked after the Winton round.

The Kiwi finished second at Winton on Sunday, his second podium finish in as many rounds, and currently sits third in the championship behind Mark Winterbottom and Craig Lowndes.

He is now set to go into the next round of the series at Hidden Valley with a brand new set of wheels, with his current Commodore, ’Tallulah’, entering retirement post-Winton.

“After two-and-a-half years of racing, seven pole positions, eight race win, 24 podiums, two lap records (Bathurst being the highlight), today we pulled Tallulah out of the truck and resting her for now,” Coulthard wrote on his Instagram account.

“She will sit there as the most successful Brad Jones Racing V8 Supercar.

“So a sad day, but also exciting… watch this space.”

The new Commodore is set to be shaken down early June.
