Brad Jones Racing is the latest team to show off a new livery scheme for the 2017 Australian Supercars Championship, with Tim Slade’s Freightliner-sponsored Holden VF Commodore getting a lighter paint job ahead of the new season.
The Victorian outfit has run its #14 entry in a red and black scheme since the trucking company secured naming rights sponsorship in 2015, but has opted to tone down the decal in the third year of its partnership.
“The Freightliner Racing Commodore looks awesome,” said Slade.
“It’s so different to what the car has been over the past few years, we’ve had the design locked down for a while now and I’m excited to finally show it off to our Freightliner Racing fans.”
Starting his second year with the squad, Slade will be looking to build on a successful 2016 campaign that was highlighted by a clean sweep of wins at Winton Raceway which propelled him to eighth overall in the Drivers’ Championship standings.
“We didn’t put too much pressure on ourselves last year, we always wanted to do well and aim for the Top 10,” he added.
“We achieved some great results, and this year we’ll be looking to build on that and be more consistent with our speed and good results.”
Following the departure of Jason Bright, Slade will be joined by Nick Percat in the BJR stable for 2017. A third car, owned and driven by Tim Blanchard, will also be operated out of the Albury squad’s stable.
