GRM reveals new look for 2018

Garth Tander’s Holden ZB Commodore

Garry Rogers Motorsport has showcased the liveries its Supercars and Super2 Holdens will utilise this season.

The Melbourne squad has revealed a white, red and black look for its newly-built ZB Commodores for Garth Tander (#33) and main game rookie James Golding in the #34 Holden.

Backed by the Wilson Group, the Supercars entries have switched from blue hues used last season.

GRM hasn’t completely moved away from the blue colours with new Super2 signing and endurance co-driver Chris Pither running a white, blue and black livery on his VF Commodore.

The New Zealander’s car will also feature a depiction of his country’s iconic silver fern symbol.

Meanwhile, Super2 team-mate Mason Barbera, who returns for a second season, will run a colour scheme almost identical to that used by Tander and Golding.

“After the many years that I have spent in motorsport I certainly get a buzz when I see new cars roll out at the beginning of a new season,” said team owner Garry Rogers.

“I am very fortunate to have a very loyal and enthusiastic group of sponsors who are very energetic when it comes to the livery design on our race cars.

“Since 2014 we have incorporated blue in to our livery and as much as I had become quite fond of the blue, we all thought it was time for a change.

“For 2018 our #33 and #34 Virgin Australia Supercar Championship cars along with our #99 Super2 race car will be red, black and white and the Super2 #44 of Kiwi Chris Pither will keep a little blue in the team with his distinctive New Zealand themed and First Security sponsored car.

“Looks are certainly one thing, but performance is what really matters, and I have enormous faith in all my staff. I can’t wait for the season to start.”

The team will head Winton on Wednesday to shakedown its two new chassis for Tander and Golding.
