Nissan launches Rick Kelly’s Sengled Altima
Rick Kelly has showcased the new-look Sengled Racing Nissan Altima he will campaign in the 2017 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
The #15 Nissan Motorsport Altima features a new take on the red, black and silver livery with lighting and sound system supplier Sengled returning for a second year as title sponsor.
Oil giant Castrol continues to support the squad with prominent branding on the car’s bonnet this year.
Kelly heads into his fifth season behind the wheel of the Altima after finishing 13th in the championship standings last year.

A fourth Altima piloted by Todd Kelly is expected to be revealed on Tuesday.
“It’s an exciting time to reveal the #15 Sengled Racing Nissan Altima,” said Kelly.
“You get two or three months to think about the first round, so the anticipation builds and builds. It’s fantastic to reveal the livery on the car and now we just want to get in there and do the job.
“It certainly feels the best prepared we’ve been. I think that’s why we’re so excited to hit the track.
“I’m very excited to have Castrol on the front of my car for this year.
“It’s an iconic name in the automotive industry.
“I’ve had a long relationship with Castrol and that’s something I’m quite fond of. I won Bathurst in 2003 and 2004 with them onboard, so it’s a big deal to have them on the car with me.”
Rick Kelly will pilot the #15 entry for the first time at Tuesday’s official tyre test at Sydney Motorsport Park.
