Craig Lowndes: Focus critical amid Brock livery hype
After a huge publicity stunt unveiling the Peter Brock-inspired livery at Mount Panorama today, Craig Lowndes says that all of his focus will be centred towards claiming a sixth Bathurst 1000 victory when the cars hit the track for the first time tomorrow.
Lowndes and Brock’s former partner Bev Brock helped launch the look of the #888 TeamVodafone Commodore VE at Bathurst today, watching it helicopted onto the top of the mountain before driving it to pit lane.

While there was much hype around today’s livery launch, Lowndes says that the team’s attention will switch to making the 1982 look-a-like a 2012 winner.
“We will not be focussing on the livery of this car come Sunday,” Lowndes told Speedcafe.com.
“To see the livery, for what it is, is quite amazing. To grow up as a child, to watch this livery drive around and now have it on my Holden is remarkable and amazing.
“(But) tomorrow, we want to start to make sure we have a good race car around us for Sunday.”
