De Pasquale is one of five Supercars debutants this weekend.
“Not only does the car look good, it’s extra special being my debut,” said De Pasquale.
“It’s very exciting to be rolling out for my first main game event this weekend, and it’s fantastic to have the support of Thermosphere.

“Both test days ran faultlessly and it was a great opportunity to get really comfortable ahead of the first race.”
De Pasquale will hit the track for the first time on Friday when opening practice begins at 0945 local time.
