Erebus Motorsport has revealed the livery its Supercars squad Penrite Racing will run in this year’s Championship.
The new-look team launched its campaign with drivers David Reynolds and Anton De Pasquale in an event at Federation Square in Melbourne today.
“It’s great to reveal the 2019 Penrite Racing car livery in one of Melbourne’s most iconic spots,” Reynolds said.
“It’s something a bit different and gives us an opportunity to bring the cars to the fans.”
A tweaked livery sees the team’s familiar satin finish switch to PPG’s gloss paint, with the addition of Metamark’s bold red and chrome lines.
Two matching Holden’s also mark the first year Erebus has run consistent liveries across both cars.
“The cars look fast, it’s a credit to the entire team to represent Penrite Oil across both cars this season and race under their flag” De Pasquale said.
“It’s nice to see some of last year’s features also carry into the new year, like the extra red and chrome trim, but this time with a twist.”
Penrite Oil has continued to showcase their heritage, as the Australian made and owned company celebrate 93 years on home soil.
“Penrite is one of the most recognised brands in motoring, so it’s very exciting to have their continued support,” De Pasquale said.
“It’s also a massive boost for me personally, for what is sure to be a big season.”
Existing partners CRC Industries, Ryco Filters, Supa Centa Moore Park, PPG Industries, Malouf Holden, Snap-on Tools, SupaShock, King Springs, Metamark, Natiive, CM Security, BAMS Commercial Fitouts and official charity Feel the Magic also adorn the car’s livery, as well as newcomers Revolution Racegear and Coca-Cola.
The team also welcome back Supagas, Gencom, Workwear Discounts, Motorsport Distributors Group, Corp IT, Hawk Karts, Air Allied, Westar Trucks, Noiseguard and Coopers for another season.
Both Penrite Racing Commodores will hit the track for the first time at Phillip Island this Thursday.
