Veteran driver Greg Murphy will run a striking new livery on his Pepsi Max Holden Commodore entry for this weekend’s Trading Post Perth Challenge, the fourth round of the 2011 V8 Supercars Championship season.
Designed by Sydney tattoo artist Jeremy Hession, the car’s new paint scheme was unveiled yesterday ahead of this weekend’s three-race event.
“It definitely has a different feel to the original livery with more dark and urban colours at play,” the New Zealander is quoted as saying.
Murphy will be hoping that the new colour scheme can help continue the upswing in performance he showed from the last round on his home turf at Hamilton, where he took a season’s best eighth place in the first race and qualified inside the top ten for both races.
“I’m looking forward to getting behind the wheel this weekend as we’ve started to pick up some good form over the last few races,” he added.
“Barbagallo’s track surface is very different to what we have been racing on at the last few race meetings, so it’s a whole new ball game. I’m hoping we can take what we have already done and continue to improve over there and continue to get some great results for the team as a whole.”
