Did you know National Tradies Day is on the 21st of September? Well, now you do!

Lee Holdsworth of Irwin Racing is highlighting this auspicious occasion with new livery to honour the role of Tradies (Tradesmen) as part of the national celebration to honour the “Hands that Build Australia”.

“Like everyone else, I’ve seen some of the great work tradies do every day, in fact most of my closest mates are tradesmen,” says Holdsworth.

“Plus in the motor racing industry we like to surround ourselves with skilled tradespeople to ensure the best results.”

Tradesmiths are an often underappreciated group, and it is great to see their role being highlighted by the driver and team.  Without our tradies, nothing would ever get made! Irwin Tools car National Tradesmen 3 344x241 FIRST PICS: Holdsworths new look IRWIN Falcon

The team even redesigned their emblem, highlighting the ‘real’ working hands.

“IRWIN is committed to making National Tradesmen Day a major event and it’s great we can use the V8 Supercar as a “vehicle” to help publicise it,” said Laura Turnbull, Marketing Director – IRWIN Tools Asia Pacific.

“Everyone is looking forward to National Tradesmen Day and we will continue to drive the message both on and off the race track.”

You will be able to see the awesome new livery on the IRWIN Tools Stone Brothers Falcon at Sydney Motorsport Park on 25-26 August and at the Dick Smith Sandown 500 on 14-16 September.
