Boost Mobile Racing powered by Erebus’ Will Brown has hit the track in a brand-new livery ahead of next week’s Bathurst 1000.
The Melbourne-based squad revealed the new look at Winton Motor Raceway this morning after a mammoth effort to rebuild the #9.
Their latest scheme sees the team revert to their traditional black PPG base, with Boost detailing in the Metamark wrap and fluoro orange decals.
“It’s exciting to roll out a new livery for Bathurst, particularly after what’s been a massive team effort to get the car back together,” Brown said.
“They boys have worked so hard to get the chassis repaired and they’ve done an awesome job to get the car ready to test pre-Bathurst.
“I’m really impressed by what they have been able to achieve in such a short time, this team is incredible, and I can’t wait to get to Bathurst.”
Brown is joined today by Jack Perkins to shakedown his rebuilt Supercar, in what also serves as their pre-enduro test.
“Today is our regular pre-Bathurst test but it is also a shakedown of what is pretty much a new car,” Brown said.
“Today’s focus is about getting Jack laps, doing pit stop practices and driver changes, but also making sure we are happy with the new build and the car is ready to head to the Mountain.
“I feel good heading into Bathurst, we were fast last year and have been competitive every year we’ve rolled up so there’s no reason why we’re not in with a chance for a top spot come Sunday afternoon.”
Teammate Brodie Kostecki, who will also carry the same livery alongside David Russell, is eager to return to Bathurst after finishing on the podium last year.
“The car looks fantastic and I can’t wait to see it take on the Mountain,” Kostecki said.
“Dave and I are both really pumped going into Bathurst this year.
“We had a really good test day at The Bend last week so all signs are looking positive and we want to go two spots better this year.”
New Zealand duo Greg Murphy and Richie Stanaway are also at Winton today, taking part in their third and final test ahead of the Bathurst 1000, October 6 – 9.
