Special liveries for the Repco Bathurst 1000

Supercars teams Grove Racing, PremiAir Racing and SCT Motorsport have released special liveries ahead of this weekend’s Repco Bathurst 1000.

Grove Racing’s pair of Penrite-sponsored Ford Mustangs will feature a predominately ‘brushed copper livery’, which replicates those of previous years.

Veteran pair David Reynolds and Garth Tander will enter the race as one of the pre-event favourites, while rookie Matt Payne impressed alongside Frenchman Kevin Estre at Sandown to finish as the lead Ford.

“I am really excited for the livery, I think it looks awesome, the base colour is really different to recent Penrite Racing cars and brings a new look to the car,” said Payne.

“Being Bathurst, it is the biggest weekend of the year combined with a lot of unknowns with the Gen3 car and changes.

“It will be interesting for the fans, and I hope we have a speedy car come Sunday that allows us to fight for the win and I am looking forward to sharing the car with Kevin again.”

Although Tander and Reynolds’ race ended during the first stint when a wheel departed company approaching the fast back esses, confidence hasn’t been dented by the retirement.

“The Penrite Mustang will absolutely stand out from the crowd at Bathurst this weekend,” Tander said.

“Penrite Racing have done a great job again with the livery, so really excited about that.

“Obviously with Bathurst itself we are looking for another strong weekend off the back of Sandown with Matt and Kevin’s performance as the first Mustang home on Sunday.

“For Dave and I, we were looking really strong early. The team did a great job at Sandown but we all know what a challenge Bathurst is however we are really excited to meet that challenge.”

Also launching a new livery is PremiAir Racing in support of the Movember cause to champion men’s health.

The messages featuring on the side of the PremiAir Racing’s Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 will be ‘The Mo is calling’ and Raise Funds. Save Lives.”

Those wanting to aid can do the following:

Grow a mo: Because even the worst moustaches start the best conversations.

Move for mental health: Run or walk 60km for the 60 men we lose to suicide every minute, every hour of every day, across the globe.

Host a mo-ment: Throw an event to raise funds for men’s health and surrender to having a good time.

Mo your own way: Do dares. Climb mountains. Chase personal bests. Quit social media or choose your own challenge. Change the face of men’s health – on your terms.

Jack Smith and Jaxon Evans will drive the SCT Motorsport Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 featuring a ‘fan-powered’ livery this weekend.

The Camaro is adorned with a collage of photographs supplied by fans of their Great Race experiences, with the drivers also submitting an image each.

“Seeing some of the photos submitted and everyone sharing their moments at Bathurst was amazing,” said Smith.

“Knowing we get to carry them with us this weekend on the SCT Logistics car and representing all of these memories and special events for people is a great feeling.

“We had some learning to do after Sandown, there were a few positives that we were able to take from the race and we had pace early in the weekend.

“I can’t wait to get to Mount Panorama and see what we can do there.”
