Brad Jones Racing reveal Tim Slade’s 2019 livery

Brad Jones Racing has revealed the livery of the Freightliner Racing / Alliance Truck Parts Holden that Tim Slade will race during the 2019 Supercars Championship season.

Slade will be going into his fourth season with the team aiming to try and break back into the top ten in the standings having fallen just short in 2018; where he finished eleventh in the title race.

The reveal of the livery saw the team head to a remote farm where the new-look car was discovered as a ‘barn find, with Slade then getting behind the wheel for the first time.

The first time the car will be seen in public is during testing at Phillip Island next week.

“We had fantastic feedback on our launch video last year and it definitely stood out from the rest,” team boss Brad Jones said. “We knew we needed to deliver something like this again for Freightliner/Alliance Truck Parts and our fans and we think this one might just be bigger and better. More of the Freightliner Coronado, more of the Supercar and a mountain of dirt! It’s very cool for our team to showcase our partners like this, the buzz it creates is pretty awesome.”

“When we unveiled a double Freightliner/Alliance Truck Parts livery in Darwin with team-mate Nick Percat, we featured more black on the front his car to make them stand apart. People enjoyed the tough look of the Supercar, so we’ve got more of the shiny PPG black at the front with the big, bright pops of yellow.

“Tim was quite close to standing on the podium a couple of times last year, and there’s no doubt we’d like to get him back up there again in 2019 We’ve learned a lot of lessons over the last year with the ZB Commodore and are looking to improve on the consistency and deliver some good results.”
