Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, Holden's official factory racing team has become one of the greatest success stories in Australian sport.

Formed in 1990, the team was initially run by British sports car driver Win Percy on behalf of Tom Walkinshaw Racing.

After winning on debut at Bathurst, HRT hit its straps from the mid-1990s with the emergence of Craig Lowndes and the late Peter Brock, before drivers such as Greg Murphy, Mark Skaife, Jason Bright and Todd Kelly helped push the team to the mantle as the most successful touring car team in V8 Supercar history.

In 2008, reigning V8 Supercars champion Garth Tander joined Skaife in the hot seat. Will Davison replaced the retiring Skaife in 2009, and the team's successes continued, Davison and Tander clean-sweeping the Phillip Island and Bathurst endurance races and delivering HRT the V8 Supercars Teams' Championship.

Reigning V8 Supercar champion James Courtney replaced Davison in 2011, Courtney making his return to the team with which he made his V8 debut in the annual V8 endurance races six years before.

Courtney scored his first win for the Holden outfit in Abu Dhabi, while Tander backed up a win in the Clipsal 500 with victory in Townsville.

Tander joined with Bathurst rookie Nick Percat to win Australia's Great Race, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 in October, HRT's seventh Bathurst crown, and its 200th all-time race win - an Australian record.

2012 was a rebuilding year for HRT, leading into a very rewarding 2013 season with the new VF Commodore. Tander led home teammate Courtney for a dominant one-two finish at Townsville, before Courtney broke through at Winton and Tander scored his second win for the season at Phillip Island.

Courtney began 2014 in the best way possible by winning the season-opening Clipsal 500 in Adelaide - and also took victory at Ipswich. Tander replicated the team's famous one-two result in Townsville, leading home Courtney.

HRT enters the 2015 season with an unchanged driver line-up, and plenty to celebrate on its silver anniversary.
