Wilson Security Racing GRM unveil 2018 Livery
As previously announced the Wilson Group will continue as the team’s official naming rights partner for a fourth consecutive season.
GRM will again field two cars in both the Virgin Australia Supercar championship and in the 2018 Dunlop Super2 series, with James “Bieber” Golding stepping up to join Garth Tander in the main series and Mason Barbera returns to the team for a second season in the Super2 Series and will be joined by Chris Pither. Richard Muscat continues with the team as an Endurance driver in 2018
After the many years that I have spent in Motorsport I certainly get a buzz when I see new cars roll out at the beginning of a new season. As I get a “little” older I tend to reminisce a little more and seeing our shiny new race cars makes me think back to the old days when the car cover is pulled off the race car, hopefully a few new stickers were added for sponsors and after a hose off and chamois away we went!” Team Owner Garry Rogers said
“I am very fortunate to have a very loyal and enthusiastic group of sponsors who are very energetic when it comes to the livery design on our race cars. Since 2014 we have incorporated blue in to our livery and as much as I had become quite fond of the blue, we all thought it was time for a change. For 2018 our #33 and #34 Virgin Australia Supercar Championship cars along with our #99 Super2 race car will be red, black and white and the Super2 #44 of Kiwi Chris Pither will keep a little blue in the team with his distinctive New Zealand themed and First Security sponsored car.”
“It is important that as a Team that we have pride in our presentation and I am sure that when we see our 2018 cars on track all of the girls and boys at GRM and all of the staff at Wilson, Valvoline, PAYCE and Paynter and Dixon will be thrilled with the way they are being represented. Looks are certainly one thing, but performance is what really matters, and I have enormous faith in all my staff. I can’t wait for the season to start!”
The new ZB Commodores will be on track at Winton on Wednesday for a shakedown prior to the Sydney Motorsport Park test on Friday.
