Two more Holden outfits have shown off the livery schemes they will run for the upcoming V8 Supercars Championship season. SuperCheap Auto Racing and Lockwood Racing (Brad Jones Racing) both took the covers off the cars that will be driven by Russell Ingall and Fabian Coulthard respectively.
Ingall’s car was unveiled in a rather unique launch ceremony at SuperCheap Auto’s Melbourne-based distribution warehouse, where staff received an ‘order’ for a complete race team, which culminated in Ingall’s new Holden Commodore VF being driven into the warehouse, resplendent in its updated livery scheme:
The new colours come courtesy of the same Holden Design team that created the livery being used by his Walkinshaw Racing stablemates, James Courtney and Garth Tander, who race under the TOLL Holden Racing Team banner.
The new livery features more black than the cars of previous seasons, which have tended to feature SuperCheap’s other corporate colours – red, white and yellow – more prominently.
Ingall confirmed late last year that the 2013 season would be his last in the V8 Supercars Championship.
Meanwhile, over in Mildura, Brad Jones Racing took the covers off the second of its three cars’ colour schemes, having unveiled Jason Bright’s BOC-sponsored entry earlier in the week.
It will be the second season that Coulthard drives for BJR, although this year he will enjoy a much bolder colour scheme after Lockwood re-signed as a naming rights sponsor for a further 12 months.
The three-car outfit retains the same driver line-up from 2012, with its third driver David Wall expected to unveil his Wilson Security-sponsored car in the next two days.
