Shell V-Power Racing Team unveil eye-catching indigenous livery

Shell V-Power Racing Team’s pair of Ford Mustangs will feature a striking indigenous livery at this weekend’s Darwin Triple Crown.

Designed by contemporary indigenous artist Zoe Raymond of Bunji Enterprises, the artwork highlights the success of the team and the unseen contributions made behind the scenes.

“Some of these symbols are at the forefront and stand out strong,” explained Raymond. 

“These are the achievements and milestones that everyone sees first and foremost. The symbols that are hiding in the background are representative of all the hard work that the Nation doesn’t see. 

“Like our First Nations people, the Shell V-Power Racing Team showcases tenacity, hard work and determination to keep moving forward. That is the time when the fire burns even brighter; the determination to win keeps the team going. 

“Just like the fire that keeps our people going.”

Raymond added the sides of both Ford Mustangs highlight the journey of a race and display the eagerness for victory.

“There is a second design that adorns the side panels,” Raymond continued. “The symbols represent the pitstops made throughout each race. The wavy lines symbolise the smoke that fills up the pit as the drivers speed off in determination with that burning desire to win. We will always be loud and proud, and so will the

Shell V-Power Racing Team.”

Raymond was thrilled to be invited back to design Shell V-Power Racing Team’s indigenous livery particularly as it aligns with NAIDOC week and will be carries into Townsville.

“I’m so excited to be back working with the Shell V-Power Racing Team,” she said. 

“It was such a privilege last year to build those relationships and to be able to continue working on something so great is really exciting for me and somehow, I think we’ve been able to do something even bigger and better this year. 

“As Australians there are a lot of things that bring us together and one of those is sport, particularly motorsport, so being able to bring Indigenous culture into these rounds, I think it gets conversations going, particularly during NAIDOC week and it helps us move forward together as a Nation. 

“So, it’s a privilege to be able to do that.”
