Shane van Gisbergen and Luke Youlden will take to Mount Panorama next month with a revised livery on their SP Tools Racing Ford.

Although not getting into the ‘retro’ theme expected to be displayed by the likes of Dick Johnson Racing, Ford Performance Racing and TeamVodafone, the look of the Stone Brothers Racing prepared car has been given a freshen up for the biggest race of the season.

Van Gisbergen and Youlden combined to finish fifth in the recent Dick Smith Sandown 500 having won the preceding day’s two qualifying races.

This year will mark Van Gisbergen’s sixth and last start, for the foreseeable future, at Bathurst in Ford machinery before SBR switches to Mercedes-Benz AMG engines and bodywork next year.
