Craig Lowndes will this morning unveil a one-off livery for his TeamVortex Holden ahead of the weekend’s CrownBet Darwin Triple Crown.

The covers will come off Lowndes’ livery at a media event at Sanderson Middle School, Darwin late this morning.

It will mark the second time Triple Eight has run a one-off look at Hidden Valley following its ‘Red Dust’ charity scheme in 2008.

Lowndes heads to Darwin fourth in the championship standings following a strong start to the year in the team’s new third entry.

Triple Eight completed a test day with all three cars at Queensland Raceway last week, giving Lowndes added confidence ahead of the trip to the Top End.

Last year saw Lowndes win the second Saturday race at the venue, becoming the first driver to reach the 100 race win milestone in the ATCC/V8 Supercars Championship.
