Meet The Team
Prodrive Racing Australia was established in December 2002 after Prodrive, the world’s largest independent automotive engineering company, bought Glenn Seton Racing. The team won its second V8 Supercar round when PRA’s crew made a crucial weather call, keeping Craig Lowndes out at Phillip Island whilst others made early tyre stops. The rain PRA had anticipated came 17 laps from the finish bringing everyone in for wets. Lowndes, having not already pitted, emerged in front.
Prodrive Racing Australia is backed by a broad group of partners headlined by The Bottle-o and Monster Energy. The team’s partners are all leaders in their respective sectors and provide the team with a strong support base along with leading-edge technologies to help PRA stay at the forefront of motorsport technology.
