Triple Eight unveils Indigenous livery for Darwin

Triple Eight Race Engineering has unveiled an Indigenous livery for this weekend’s Supercars Championship races at Darwin.

“I know I speak for everyone at Red Bull Ampol Racing when I say that we are honoured to help celebrate the 10-year partnership between Ampol and the Clontarf Foundation through an inspiring livery designed by talented local Indigenous students,” Whincup said.

“We are so proud to be racing a livery that is designed locally and hope the students are just as excited to see their design on-track as we are to be racing it.”

The livery has been designed by the students of the Clontarf Foundation’s Nightcliff Academy in Darwin and will be featured on both Jamie Whincup’s and Shane van Gisbergen’s cars this weekend.

The Clontarf Foundation is working on improving the education, life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men.
