Lee Holdsworth’s IRWIN Tools Ford Falcon FG will take on a new livery for the next two V8 Supercars events at Sydney Motorsport Park and the Dick Smith Sandown 500.

The #4 Ford will act as a mobile billboard for sponsor IRWIN’s Tools celebrations around National Tradesmen Day on Friday, September 21.

Holdsworth’s IRWIN entry will feature more yellow, as well as the company’s National Tradesmen Day logo.

This year marks the inaugural National Tradesmen Day.

IRWIN Racing’s Lee Holdsworth is pleased with the look of his race car and the initiative to elevate the role of Australian tradesmen.

“Like everyone else, I’ve seen some of the great work tradies do everyday, in fact most of my closest mates are tradesmen.” said Holdsworth.

“Plus in the motor racing industry we like to surround ourselves with skilled tradespeople to ensure the best results.”

“Carrying the special livery over the next two events marks what will be a great day and something I encourage people to be part of .”

To initiate this annual celebration for tradesmen, IRWIN introduced a logo to give ‘National Tradesmen Day’ a distinct graphical icon.

The IRWIN Tools National Tradesmen Day livery will be seen on the IRWIN Racing at Sydney Motorsport Park (formally Eastern Creek) on August 25-26 and the Dick Smith Sandown 500 on September 14-16.

In other Holdsworth news, Lee and wife Alana welcomed to the world their first child, Ava. Born last Thursday (August 9), Ava and new parents are all travelling well. Speedcafe.com wishes them the best in their new adventures.
