The Harvey Norman Supergirls Bathurst 1000 wildcard entry will sport a bold new colour scheme to go with the entry’s change of manufacturer ahead of next month’s ‘Great Race’.
Fresh from the announcement that the all-female Simona de Silvestro / Renee Gracie entry will drive a Nissan Motorsport-run entry at this year’s endurance classic, the team has unveiled a striking new white, black and yellow livery.
The colour change – a distinct departure from Harvey Norman’s red, white and blue hues – comes courtesy of a major sponsorship injection from camera manufacturer Nikon, which joins the electrical retail giant as the entry’s primary sponsor.
Other sponsorship comes from Caltex, Fujitsu, Dunlop, Wilson, Bathurst Regional Council and Bremtec.
After running a #200 entry last year to mark Bathurst bicentenary, this year’s entry will be run as #360 to plug Nikon’s 360-degree camera product.
The livery was unveiled ahead of a two-day test session at Winton Raceway for de Silvestro and Gracie, who finished 21st overall in last year’s Bathurst 1000 after Gracie crashed at Forrest Elbow early in the race.
