The newly liveried Plus Fitness Racing Lucas Dumbrell Commodore

Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport has taken the covers off a new livery for its #3 Commodore to be driven by Aaren Russell and Taz Douglas at the Wilson Security Sandown 500.

The entry has undergone a makeover with a striking new white, orange and blue colour scheme courtesy of Russell’s long term backers Plus Fitness.

To coincide with the retro round theme at Sandown, the car’s look features Plus Fitness’ original branding from when the Australian wide franchise launched in 1996.

“We have used our first ever logo which we all thinks looks pretty retro even for the 90’s so we are confident the car will look great on the track,” said John Fuller, Plus Fitness founding director.

“We are really pleased to have contributed in some way to this special round and join in as part of the retro theme.”

This weekend sees Newcastle-based driver Russell rejoin the squad as the primary driver of the #3 entry following an outing at Townsville in July.

The 26-year-old is confirmed to partner Douglas for the entire Pirtek Enduro Cup campaign as well as a solo drive at the Coates Hire Newcastle 500 season finale in November.

“Without their (Plus Fitness’) commitment to me, I wouldn’t have been able to continue on with motorsport, so I owe them a lot,” said Russell.

“To know you have people who believe and back who you are 100 percent, is incredible and over the years they have become more than just a sponsor.

“We have developed such a great relationship and friendship.

“We look out for each other and we all want what’s best for both parties, so I’m really excited to be able to get back into the Supercars Championship and show off our Plus Fitness livery.”
