Audi Customer Racing Australia has unveiled a special livery for its Team ASR entry at next month’s Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.

The #3 Team ASR Audi R8 to be piloted by experienced GT ace Matt Halliday, former Toyota Racing Series champion Daniel Gaunt and gentleman racer Ash Samadi features a striking red, white and green livery.

The rear of the car displays prominent branding from fast food giant KFC.

Owned by Samadi, the R8 GT3 is one of six being prepared for the February 3-5 Mount Panorama classic by the Melbourne-based Audi operation.

The two Jamec Pem Racing Audis set to be driven by Garth Tander, Chris Mies, Christopher Hasse, Markus Winkelhock, Frank Stippler and Robert Frijns will run in Valvoline colours.

Earlier this week, the squad’s GT Motorsport entry of Greg Taylor, Nathan Antunes and Elliot Barbour uncovered a grey livery for its Bathurst 12 Hour assault.

This follows the unveil of the #9 Hallmarc Audi to be driven by Marc Cini, Lee Holdsworth and Dean Fiore.
