Triple Eight Race Engineering re-signs partnership with Intercad
Intercad is pleased to announce the re-signing of a further three year Technology Partnership with Australia’s highly successful V8 Supercar Team, Triple Eight Race Engineering, the powerhouse behind Red Bull Racing Australia, fronted by Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes.
Intercad is Australia and New Zealand’s largest reseller of leading design software, SolidWorks, and provides services and solutions to engineers and designers to create, simulate, publish and manage their design needs and outputs. Knowledge of design and 3D CAD tools is backed by unrivalled experience, exceptional technical support, industry leading hardware, and a total commitment to customer service.
The bespoke V8 Supercar Championship-winning cars, driven by Whincup and Lowndes, are designed using SolidWorks 3D software with technical support from Intercad. Triple Eight, with Jamie Whincup at the helm, have won an astonishing six V8 Supercars Championships in the last seven seasons.
“We are pleased to continue our work with Triple Eight Race Engineering. This is a three year partnership. It is great to work with a client seeking the best design modelling technology – SolidWorks; and to work with engineers who use the full functionality of the software – simulations, visualisations, testing and data management”, John Atkinson, General Manager Intercad Australia and New Zealand.
The results speak for themselves – Triple Eight secured both the Teams and the Drivers V8 Supercars titles in 2014, having also reached this impressive feat on four previous occasions, during their currently dominant seven year period.
“The results our engineers have achieved in designing championship winning V8 Supercars using SolidWorks technology have been extremely satisfying during our previous six years in partnership, which we’re naturally looking forward to continuing. Intercad’s engineers assisted us in migrating to SolidWorks a number of years ago. There was risk and cost involved, and working with Intercad eliminated this. Now we quite simply wouldn’t be without the SolidWorks software and enjoy a great partnership with SolidWorks an Intercad and their highly skilled team of engineers. They have unrivalled expertise and product knowledge, assisting our Team in utilising the full functionality of the SolidWorks suite”, says Ludo Lacroix, Technical Director of Triple Eight Race Engineering.
