Walkinshaw Andretti United reveals finale livery
Walkinshaw Andretti United has joined Triple Eight in revealing a special livery for Holden’s final event in the Supercars Championship this weekend on the streets of Adelaide.
The cars of Chaz Mostert and Nick Percat will both run tribute liveries that pay homage to the team’s previous role as the Holden Racing Team, with the cars running the famous HRT lion.
Both drivers will also wear special race suits, whilst a thank you message to Holden fans will be on the roof of the two cars.
“We wanted to do something special for the last ever Holden race, and it just wouldn’t be right if we didn’t have the lion and the helmet on the side of our cars for one last time, we know how much it means to so many people,” team principal Bruce Stewart said.
“This team has had such a long a storied history with Holden, we bled red, our fans bled red, so for the final roar, it’s only fitting we reflect back on the journey we’ve had and thank everyone involved, from the fans who have supported us through thick and thin, the thousands of people who contributed to Holden over its journey, and everyone here who has been a part of our team.
“It finishing in Adelaide is also fitting, with so many people contributing to the Holden legacy just down the road at the Elizabeth plant, the place Nick’s father, grandfather and great grandfather worked as well – these people were the lifeblood of Holden.
“A thank you to all of our partners who have supported this, we are looking forward to hopefully sending the brand off in the best possible way over the weekend.”
