The Holden Racing Team (sometimes known by its sponsored identity Toll Holden Racing Team) is a Melbourne based motor racing team. HRT is the most successful V8 Supercar racing team in the history of the category, having won the drivers championship six times, and the series signature race the Bathurst 1000 seven times (1990, 1996, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2009, 2011). HRT is the official competition representative of Australian car manufacturer GM Holden Ltd, and its performance vehicle partner Holden Special Vehicles. The team is based out of Clayton, a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria where it shares some of its facilities with sister-team, Walkinshaw Racing as a subsidiary of Walkinshaw Performance. Like its predecessor as the official Holden supported team, the Holden Dealer Team, the team has been based out of Melbourne its whole life, maintaining the close geographical link with the corporate headquarters of Holden.
The team's current full-time drivers are Garth Tander, and James Courtney.

Famous quotes containing the words team, holden and/or racing:
“Is my team ploughing,
That I was used to drive
And hear the harness jingle
When I was man alive?”
—A.E. (Alfred Edward)
“If we could have any security against moods! If the profoundest prophet could be holden to his words, and the hearer who is ready to sell all and join the crusade, could have any certificate that to-morrow his prophet shall not unsay his testimony!”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“Upscale people are fixated with food simply because they are now able to eat so much of it without getting fat, and the reason they dont get fat is that they maintain a profligate level of calorie expenditure. The very same people whose evenings begin with melted goats cheese ... get up at dawn to run, break for a mid-morning aerobics class, and watch the evening news while racing on a stationary bicycle.”
—Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)
