Charlie Schwerkolt Racing has revealed a bold new livery scheme for its 2017 Australian Supercars Championship campaign and confirmed that Karl Reindler will remain as Pirtek Enduro Cup co-driver to Lee Holdsworth.

Forklift magnate Schwerkolt will again have his Preston Hire company as the main backer and naming rights sponsor of Holdsworth’s #18 Holden VF Commodore, which features an updated black-and-yellow colour scheme.

The single-car team has spent the off-season relocating to new premises and is hopeful it can rebound after a frustrating 2016 campaign that was seriously impacted in the mid-season by a leg-breaking accident for Holdsworth at Hidden Valley Raceway.

“The car looks amazing and I think it is the sharpest looking car for 2017,” team owner Schwerkolt said.

“It’s been a massive six-week turnaround from an empty factory to a new state of the art facility right at my head office in Mount Waverley [in Melbourne], so really proud of the whole team at Preston Hire Racing and Waverley Forklifts.

“We are so excited to go racing at Clipsal and I think we are in for a really good year.”
