Erebus Motorsport’s two Penrite liveried cars

Anton De Pasquale will run under the colours of Penrite with a special livery planned for both Erebus Motorsport Holdens this weekend’s Red Rooster Sydney SuperNight 300.

The team’s cars will display almost identical red, black and gold liveries at Sydney Motorsport Park, with the arrangement set to continue for the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, ITM Auckland SuperSprint and the Coates Hire Newcastle 500 season finale.

The colour scheme for both cars will undergo a special tweak this weekend with the use of stickers designed to light up during the night time conditions teams will face at the SuperNight 300.

“We wanted to source the best material to execute something that would light up the race track and showcase something special,” Penrite Oil Corporate Partnership Manager Jarrod Harding.

“While our branding is very strong, the gradient colour shading presented a significant challenge but we were able to recreate the Penrite branding in a truly striking manner.”

De Pasquale last ran under the colours of the oil giant utilised by his team-mate David Reynolds at last month’s Watpac Townsville 400

“To see our Australian family brand across two cars in Australia’s premier racing category is fantastic,” added Harding.

“It’s a great testament to the strength of the Penrite range and the support that our customers have shown along this journey.

“We have developed a great relationship with Erebus; one that focuses on product development and performance and has already secured numerous race wins and podium finishes including Supercars’ highest prize, the Bathurst 1000.”

The Sydney SuperNight 300 will begin with a 40 minute practice session on Friday at 1800 AEST.
